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:

HTH. (Hope This Helps. :)
Please post your feedback.

I am running Windows Vista Home Edition with IE8. When ever I click on a result from any search engine, I am redirected to a totally different sight. I have McAfee, Lavasoft Adaware Plus, Windows Defender,...


IE is a virus bate. Using anything else will fix your problem. Never the less, I would suggest that you remove McAfee, Lavasoft, Malwarebytes and Super AntiS. Instead of that all, you should install AVAST pro. Your machine will be faste, having less programs constantly checking your work, and you will be more secure (believe it or not)
