Sir,

If u have purchased antivirus through mcafee website, check the website for online support. also update the antivirus and scan the whole system it will be cleared. if not worked, backup all the files and folder in c:\ drive and reinstall the OS.

Note: If u reinstall the OS u may clear all the virus and better to work with antivirus program. If antivirus program is install after reinstall OS it much better.

thanks
good luck

Antivirus wont turn on in settings


Is your Anti Virus Up-To-Date? Will it update? Depending on the Brand of software(you didn't post), Anti Virus, that's installed. The windows Security Center may not recognize it. Open Security Center and change Notification of Anti Virus. First make sure it hasn't been compromised, if you are infected the infected file will shut down your Anti Virus. Use this freeware program to verify a clean system , MALWAREBYTES: http://www.filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/ In the install, UNCHECK the Trial Pro version, you want the freeware version, Run a FULL scan, delete ALL results, reboot. Depending on the size of your HDD, it may take hours. Post results and your Anti Virus Software Manufacturer.

Features of McAfee Antivirus


<p>McAfee anti-virus features include anti-virus, anti-spyware tools, firewall software to protect your pc from all type of viruses and threats over the network. McAfee bundles a lot of features into its antivirus. Besides the classical protection features found in most antivirus products, McAfee also integrates a Silent Full Screen feature, which stops all antivirus notifications from being displayed while full screen applications are running, so it won't interfere with your work. The Secure File Shredder feature is another useful feature, which will allow you to permanently and totally delete confidential files, without leaving any traces of them and eliminating all recovery possibilities. It is also optimized for laptops, by integrating a battery-saving mode that will leave intensive scans that require more power and resources for later, when your laptop is plugged into an electricity source.<br /> <p> <br> <p>Some other features are "on access file scanner" - you can access the files while scanning them, "inbound and outbound firewall protection" - to monitor your incoming and outgoing traffic over the network, it can block any suspicious connection that can harm your computer, " spyware protection" - to detect and remove spywares in order to protect your pc and your personal data from hackers, " daily definition update "- this will help your protection software to have the most recent updated virus database, so that it can prevent newly added malicious codes spreading in your pc. Some other features are " McAfee X-Ray rootkit detection " this feature will detect rootkits and remove them, "McAfee Site Advisor " - displays a safety rating for websites based on tests for evidence of spam, malware and phishing, and " McAfee System Guards" - monitors a computer for activity that may be caused by virus infection or hacker activity.

Just bought a hp mini and now has a virus infection. What do we do??


If its possible to burn disc, back the essential data first.
Dont use flash memory/USB device for this purpose. Virus spreads though them easily.

If the infection is small, u might be able to install some good antivirus software like McAfee or Kaspersky [my suggestion] and do a complete scan.

If the antivirus virus fails, the only way out is to re install the operating system. Backup the data first...

After reinstallation u still need antivirus software.
Donot open any drives further.
Install it from a CD.
then erase all drives except C drive[where u installed ur OS]- full erase by right clicking on the drive icon and selecting format option [dont perform quick erase]
Then do a scan to remove any malicious items...

Read this again b4 u proceed. All the best...
Hope this helped

My laptop wont let me log on keeps logging on then logging off straight away


Your system is infected by trojan,

Scan your System with a good Anti-Virus like Kaspersky Internet security 2010 or A-Squared Anti-malware with lastest updates installed.Both can detect trojan as well as malware,spyware etc.

This will solve your problem.

Very very slow to do anything


Sounds to me, you might be infected. Be sure and Back-up everything, before you can't do anything. Here is some good information for you.

Go to www.trendmicro.com, and do the free scan Trend Micro's House Call virus, spyware and malware scanner and cleaner.
http://housecall.trendmicro.com
If you have anything, remove them.

Download Spybot Search & Destroy. Restart computer, then run Spybot to see what spyware comes up.

FYI---Virus Protection-- 2 programs of virus protection will conflict with each other and will actually cancel out the protection. .

Running Spybot Search & Destroy with EITHER Avast or Avg (great Free virus protection programs ) will keep a computer in good working condition. FREE

Somthing new FROM MICROSOFT. Security Essentials
http://www.microsoft.com

Spybot - Search & Destroy 1.5.2 FREE Spyware Program

Avast FREE Anti-Virus Protection

http://www.kaspersky.com

There are alot of $ anti-virus and Internet security programs out there,
ie: Norton, McAfee, Panda, Bitdefender. If you would like to pay $
then get Kaspersky-- 2009-2010 , I feel that is the best for your money.

REMEMBER TO KEEP UP THE DAILY MAINTENANCE ON ALL OF YOUR COMPUTERS.!

Hope this helps.

Good Luck

MSCONFIG allows you to stop programs from starting up when you boot up your computer to windows. This is good cause it will allow your computer to run quicker and more efficient cause less memory will be used. Virus protection is important cause it protects your files and Operating System from corrupting on you due to infections from spyware, malware, trojans, viruses, etc. A good free one if you don't have Mcafee or Norton is AVG and its free on the internet from: free.avg.com

Everybody has different opinions on what anti-virus program is good so decide for yourself which way you want to go. Hope this helps.
