Hi, the Acer Aspire is a Linux operating system based computer. It does not run Microsoft windows in the same way that Apple computers run OSX, not windows. The antivirus programs you mention are for windows computers. On the bright side, running Linux you really DON'T need virus protection Linux is inherently far more secure than windows.

My Nieghbor loaded at least 3 rogue anti-virus programs onto her Acer. The netbook has 2 legitimate users. Most control panel, security center and other critical applications have been blocked from use...

sounds like spyware still got thru even with all the anti-virus programs running. Best thing to do is to save all the important data onto an external drive or flash drive and then reformat the drive and reinstall the drivers for the hardware and put the applications that you want back onto the computer. This time only install one anti-virus program onto the computer.

AVG is an Antivirus product. If you do not have any antivirus protection (such as AVG or Norton), you need some. You can go to Start, Programs, Control Panel, Add and Remove Programs to see if it is listed. If it is listed you have it. If it is not, you can download it here.

There is a free version of AVG antivirus. It is a good product. After one year, it tries to make you purchase the upgrade. You can uninstall it and reinstall the free version. Sometimes there are traces left when you uninstall it, and you have to use a "cleaning" tool. Then you can re-install the free. Or purchase the upgrade.
