You can try installing Avast anti virus from this link:;mostPopTwoColWrap&cdlPid=10888427

But I would suggest you to remove the corrupt AVG first from Start>Control program>Add or remove programs

I have a acer aspire one netbook,what type of antivirus should i install to my netbook?cos all the free antivirus are already expired,please help me....tnx... ...


I find that the Free AVG is very good New one just out

Be carefull when u install it do it slowly step by step so that you tick the right boxes and not the wrong ones

Usually we dont want to install free toolbars or anything else that sometimes comes tagged with Free software

Also make sure you tick the Free Basic protection not the full one or you will have to pay for it

Hope this helps

Hi. I just got a virus on my Acer laptop and now the browser will only let me go to the AVG antivirus purchase webpage. This feels like a scam. How do I access the web for a free download?

Download AVG Free version from Viruses will not force you to websites that is spyware or adware

Email avg alert them of this and they will also help in preventing it happening again.

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.

Installing anti virus onto aspire one net book

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.

Acer aspire 3610 wont reboot

Hey, ohh these irritating virus and grab on the net, take lot lot of time to fix...

Do you have any windows xp cd/key that are bootable?

If not i think you need one.

You need to do a complete reinstall from scratch.

As you mention as novice, it might bee to mutch work?
Maybee you know someone who can help you to this first step getting windows xp installed again?

After that try install the free AVG antivirus, you can find link here to latest free version.

Also setup windows firewall, to protect you computer.

I had problems with virus as well, but i noadays use firefox browser,instead of internet explorer, firefox is more safe to use. Also microsoft office is uninstalled, and instead i installed openoffice, and thunderbird mail program.

I never have problem with virus anymore.

Sorry i can't help you anymore online than this,

wish you the best michael
