    Yes, there are no other antivirus programs. I had to reload my XP operating system, so all was clean.

Hp desktop keeps getting slower


It's probably got a virus. run a virus scan. Open your internet browser and go to google and type "download cnet malwarebytes" (without the quotes) in the google search. Look for the site download.cnet.com in the results and download and install MalwareBytes from there. be careful and watch what you click on because there will be some other junk that has a download button on cnet's site. Make sure you click the MalwareBytes download button. Once you download and install it, run a Quick Scan. If it finds infections the number of infections will be shown in red. When it finishes scanning click Show Results and a notepad will pop up showing you a text document of the results. You can close the notepad document. Now look at the malwarebytes interface and you should see an option to Remove Selected Results (they will already be checked for you). Click Remove Selected Results and when it finishes you will be instructed to click ok to reboot the machine. If you have Norton Antivirus or McAfee Antivirus remove them especially if you see the number of infections malwarebytes found. They are core hogs that will slow you to a crawl and not good at preventing viruses. Try one of the free antivirus programs such as AVG or AVAST. Download and install one of them after you ditch Norton or McAfee if you have them. Get this done and your system should perform much better.

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.

Windows security alert keeps popping up. antivirus software alert keeps popping up. have mcafee antivirus but it says application cannot be executed. file is infected.


Hi,
Sounds like you have a XP virus. Turn your computer on and go into "safe mode with networking". once connected to the internet go to cnet.com. Go to the download tab for windows. Then download and install "malwarebytes".
Install the program and run it, this should take out the malware. If succesful, go to your computer icon, right click and then select properties. Turn of system restore and restart your computer. This will remove all the nasties. Remember to turn on system restore after this is completed.

Downloaded Mcafee internet security 1 year subscription and nothing has appeared on my computor


you better be getting that for free.. other wise you may be wasting your money.. mcafee is not one the best antivirus known out there.

keep in mind that downloading the antivirus is not the same as installing the antivirus and getting it to run.. so look for the installation package you download and look for a file that's called setup.exe and run it to actually install the antivirus. once install, configure automatic updates for your antivirus and you should see the macfee icon on the system tray (bottom rigth area where the clock is).

There is a reason they are known as AOHell in the computer trade.
I know you have paid for McAfee but you are better off without it, McAfee will be a major drain on your system resources slowing your computer down.
Try and get your money back for McAfee and download the free version of AVG 8.0. This new version of AVG comes with lots of extra security enhancements not just antivirus.
You can download AVG 8.0 free here:

There are plenty of reasons not to install McAfee and if you are interested you can read about them here:
