I am having trouble downloading some new virus software (McAfee). I have bought a new product from them and and trying to download it direct from the website. I have turned off Firewall, pop-up blocker etc...


Hi,
I believe that there is an old anti virus on your system so you need to follow this...
1. Download the Norton Removal Tool, to your desktop (do NOT Run it yet.)
http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPOR...3108162039
2. Disconnect from the internet and close all programs, and REBOOT.
3. Uninstall Norton with Control Panel> Add/Remove Programs.
4. IMMEDIATELY enable the Windows Firewall!
5. Double-click on the file you saved in #1 above to run the utility. Do
NOT touch your keyboard until the run has completed, then REBOOT (again).
6. Install better antivirus, such as Eset's NOD32, Kaspersky or Avast!

FREE Home Edition Avast! antivirus - anti-spyware protection
http://www.avast.com/eng/avast-free...yware.html

You mentioned you were using XP Home edition. What Service Pack? SP3?

You did not mention HOW you connect to the internet? dialup?

Is your computer part of a local network?

Important: Download MBAM, update, and run the FULL scan:
FREE Malwarebytes anti-malware
http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php

There is some excellent information here:

I had problems with an extremely slow pc. I replaced mcafee with Norton 360. Norton found a few trojans,etc. All removed and i undertook a disk defragment. Then Windows xp home edition did not start in...


Both Norton and Mcafee are known for slowing pc's down.

Boot your PC as normal, but as its starting keep pressing the F8 key until some options appear on your screen. On of which will be "boot windows in safe mode".

Select that option and a windows shell should open.

Once open got to Start - Control Panel - Add/remove programmes and uninstal both mcafee and norton.

Once complete, reboot and see how you PC runs.

Assuming its working ok now, go back to your control panel - security centre - enable windows firewall.

Go online to "Filehippo.com" and download and istall the free version of AVG (anti virus software) once installed let it scan your system.

Then go back to Filehippo.com, download and install Ccleaner. This has loads of tools, :-
1) Cleaner clears all the tempory internet files of your pc.

2) Startup - you can reduce the number of programes you want th start up when booting.

You don't need any here because you can access all programmes via start but I'd leave AVG and any securtiy related to start and delete the rest. But its probably better to just disable the rest until you're happy with which programmes auto start.

Good Luck

Security Certificate Error: Not Trusted


It's because your system doesn't have the right time and date. Make sure that you have the right time zone and the automatic daylight change option activated as well, also check if your computer is on sync with an internet server, to do that just double click on the clock and a window will pop there you can do all those changes.

I recently removed trojans off my mums computer and now its blockin the internet pages can not download or access facebook, message says that computer is not protected.


You still have the trojan. Tha's why they are called trojans, because they hide and re-appear.

Try at least five different scanners. But ultimately, you may have to re-install Windows.
