    I have tried uninstalling McAfee but do not get that fair with the uninstall before the computer crashes. If I uninstall Itunes (assuming that I can do this before the computer crashes), will I lose my music?

Please remove Antivirus 2009 As I have McAfee security thru Comcast for free !


Antivirus 2009 is a virus and the fastest way to remove it would be to format the system over. However, if your lucky enough to have it in your ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS list, then remove it before it really gets messy. I just finished trying to clean this one and ended up reformatting the system. Now, if you need to do that, and your a bit technically incline, backup your profile located under C:\DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS\%accountname%

In the pictured example, OWNER is the primary account. Copy this to an external as this holds all your settings and documents and pictures provided you saved everything as a default to MY DOCUMENTS.

McAfee can't remove this virus.

Emachine w4885 keeps ending programs and very slow?


Hello,

There are many cases of a computer slowing down even to a crawl. As well as freezing, programs crashing etc.

The first is spyware and virus's. These two things can be eliminated by using some free removal tools that I personally use myself.
Anti-Virus: AVG Free Edition
Anti-Spyware: Malwarebytes Anti Malware

You can use your own if you already have software installed. If you already have anti-virus software installed you would have to completely remove it before installing AVG free, or it could cause problems having two anti-virus programs installed.

The second cause is junk files and a damaged registry, I recommend one program that is also free that will fix both of the above problems.
Click Here to Get CCleaner

Run these programs and complete the scans while rebooting your PC before using the next program. This will allow your PC to finalize any changes made by the programs themselves.

You can also remove programs that you don't use to free up harddrive space.

Thank you for choosing Fixya.

Virus Troubles


1, get Real Anti Virus Protection. Norton or McAfee. 2 all is not lost. McAfee offer several solution in what they call Stinger. Norton will scan the computer before it tries to install and will remove your problem files as will McAfee. This is basically a bogus add someone clicked on that allowed it to install and until you get it gone it's going to keep popping those false adds up trying to get you back to the hack site that gave them to you to begin with. Download Stinger from McAfee for free and run it from a floppy or USB drive or Buy Norton and do the install. In fact, you could get the free trial and install that of either of these and they will clean your problem.

I have bought mcafee cd from the store and after i restarted the computer my computer freezes at the windows xp screen. how do i fix this?


Hi
I know this may sound childish but the answer right now is to remove Mcafee. Do this by going into SAFE mode. Press F8 while the computer is rebooting. Once at the SAFE menu select SAFE mode with networking. Once into SAFE mode goto START, Control Panel, Programs and Features. From there uninstall Mcafee. I had you go to the network mode because now you will need to download the Mcafee uninstall tool. This will remove the remaining pieces of Mcafee. Once all this is done go to normal mode and please check to make sure you don't have any other anti virus programs installed - these will definitely mess with Mcafee. If there are no other anti virus programs installed I have to assume it was a virus or malware that interfered with your Mcafee install. Unless you have them already I would suggest you download and then run these programs AVGFREE.exe, MALWAREBYTES.exe and SUPERANTISPYWARE.exe. You can download these from www.download.com. Once these are completed, we know your system is clean, now run the Mcafee install and everything should work fine. Good luck

How to rid my computer of viruses


Use any Anti-virus scanner.
To start with you can use any trialware version of prominent anti-virus companies, like
norton
mcafee
bit defender
avg

you can try download.com to find free and trial based anti-virus programs.

Updating your virus scanner definitions regularly would minimize chances of getting infected again if your virus scanner is good.

I am trying to install new security software having uninstalled Mcafee but am getting a message that Mcafee anti virus file system filter driver is still installed. I dont think that it is but am obvoiusly...


Download the program "Revo Uninstaller" from www.download.com it is a free program that searches out every little nit of a programs existance and snuffs it out. One of the best programs I've seen for uninstalling retail garbage. When you install it and run it. It will give you a listing of all programs currently on the machine, highlight the one you want to get rid of and click on uninstall. Choose option (4), this will search the registry and get rid of everything. The original programs uninstaller will run first, let it do its thing even if it fails, hit ok and Revo will take over from there. Do not let the original program reboot, click no and continue with the Revo program. Click yes to get rid of everything each time you are asked. When it is finished it will tell you.

I just want my money back. Because it asks me to uninstall a program I want to keep, Mcafee


Since McAfee is asking you to uninstall it, I am sure the program would have come in the spyware/adware list. They may have analysed that the software might create problems in your computer.

Do this.

install Microsoft virtual pc 2007, install xp on a virtual machine using this software.
Log into the virutal machin win xp , and instlal your software. If you connect to internet using that software, you can also install the internet device drivers.

YOu happy, Mcafee happy! atlast your systemis safe.

Antivirus 2008


Hey mteder,

In some instances, spyware and virus have been known to masquerade as anti-virus programs. If you do not remember ever installing this program yourself or having it preinstalled on your computer when you purchased it, there is a good chance that this program may have been installed when you downloaded another file or accidentally clicked on a pop-up window.

Generally, one of the best ways to determine what this program actually is would be to install and run a third-party anti-virus program that you have purchased through a local retailer (such as Norton AntiVirus or McAfee VirusScan). As long as you have the most up-to-date virus definitions for either of these programs, you should be able to easily locate quarantine and remove most malicious software threats from your computer.

Some versions of Windows may even offer an additional removal tool that can be used much in the same way as these third-party anti-virus programs. For more information on this feature however, you may wish to visit Microsoft's support center at the website I've provided a link to below.

http://support.microsoft.com/

Please keep in mind that there may be exceptions that require further action, and that you can always speak with a Geek Squad® agent at your local Best Buy™ store for further assistance.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
