Can't install any anto-virus software, the window always closes

Good day..

I really need help/advice/instructions regarding how i can install an anti-virus software... i used to have norton, but it wasnt working so i decided to remove it... when i was attempting to install another software, whenever i would insert the cd, the window closes and the desktop blanks for a while...

also, whenever i attempt to download a software (like avira or kaspersky) from the internet, all the windows/web browsers always close automatically when i type the word anti-virus software... the same thing happens over and over again and my desktop blanks for a while as well...

Thank you very much and i really hope you can help me...

Have you tried uninstalling it?
Uninstalling from control panel or when in "computer" and selecting - Uninstall or change program - and then re-installing might work.

here are some suggestions of what the problem might be
you may have a virus on your computer
you may need to do some update for IE9
do you have virus protection?
do you have a malware program for viruses?like trojans

A good free virus protection is AVG

just click on the one that is free


for a malware I suggest MALWARE ANTI MALWARE

I have recently installed utorrent onto my acer aspire one netbook and my internet explorer has taken many attempts to open up. usually i get the apologies, internet explorer needs to close message come...


Hello,
Utorrent is a stand alone java P2P tool. It should not affect your internet Explorer. Of course there are viruses out there disguised as utorrent etc, so make sure you downloaded utorrent from none other then utorrent.com. If utorrent installed a browser plugin, like a search bar, that may be causing the issue. Try disabling the toolbar or uninstall utorrent to see if the issue goes away. Make sure your computer is current with windows updates and of course do a virus scanner. A good tool for that is www.malwarebytes.org . If you are downloading files from torrent sites, much like any other P2P protocol, your chances of viruses go way up.

Anti virus


Vingeshwar,

What do you mean by writing only anto virus? Do you wan to install a free anti virus (may not be Norton)? Then please go to www.download.com and download free AVG antivirus. I have been using it for the past over eleven years and find it suitable for home use. There are others too at that site but AVG is the most popular.

I have webroot antivirus and spysweeper on this home computer, but my husbands laptop has no security on his at all. Now he has gotten something called Security Tool virus on his and we CANNOT GET RID OF...


He is learning the hard way!!

Install "malwarebytes" free from the internet (Best free anti-spyware on the net) / install / update / full scan / remove everything that shows.

My strong advice is to PAY for an anti-virus program as they are far superior to free ones.

When I start Internet explorer, it comes up and closes instantly. Windows XP 64Bit IE8


scan system for viruses then here is my advice : Just go to www.microsoft.com and download internet explorer again and install it , then reboot your system . I'm sure that this will solve the problem . any way , why don't you try other internet communication softwares like ( firefox or google chrome) those both are great also . I advice you to have more than one internet communication software . I already have three just in case if one of them is corrupted . I have ( Internet explorer and firefox and google chrome ) . just try the idea and you'll be satisfied with the result .

If that didn't help then try to check system for errors . such as registry errors .
good luck .

rate if useful please !
