Sounds like you did not do things in the correct order or you did not reboot between the AVG uninstall and the Kapersky install, so that it looked like AVG was still loaded.

Since Kapersky is not installed, the best way to proceed is to start from a fresh reboot, download and re-install the AVG free edition to get the registry entries corrected. Don't bother with updates as it is coming back out again. Reboot and uninstall AVG. Reboot again and verify AVG is gone before attempting to install the Kapersky.

AVG free can be downloaded from free.grisoft.com assuming you mean the 8.0 version, not 7.5, otherwise try downloading from www.filehippo.com and select the older version.

REd shield on task bar keeps popping up telling me I have all kinds of vriuses on my computer and asks if I want to fix


You have malware on your computer, more than likely a variant of the "Antivirus 2009" type. Download Malwarebytes using a different computer onto a disk or a usb key. If you cannot or do not have another pc, reboot your pc, when it reboots hit the f8 key repeatedly, the boot menu will come up and boot into "safe mode with networking" this will enable you to download the software. Here is the link: http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php

After you install it run the quick check and remove what it finds (I would review what it found prior to deleting), then reboot into normal mode and run a full check using the MBAM tool. This may find more malware, same thing applies. If you do an antivirus please run that too, it can run at the same time. You can also download this Microsoft tool to help remove any other malware at http://www.microsoft.com/security/malwareremove/default.aspx

Good Luck

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.

Do I need a Norton-type security for my laptop, or is AVG sufficient ?


Hi,
AVG is more than sufficient for a home computer.
Norton takes quite a lot of system resources and slows computers down dramatically. AVG on the other hand uses 2/3rds less resources than Norton and is just as good.


Reagrds.

How will i remove the virus manually?


i hope you got norton off your system before putting AVG free on. Virus programs try to fight off other virus programs by postiong false virus claims to erase the other program. eventually they will kill your hard drive. You need a product key for a good virus protectant. Norton or CA offer good, reliable protection for your dollar. What i would do, is back up any really important stuff you have there, format your hard drive and install Vista again if you have the disc and then re-install it to permanetly delete viruses. Also your system maybe slow because VIsta needs at least a dual core processor and 2 GB RAM to work like a XP machine
