My personal opinion on this is that you are unlikely to be able to move the account; given the problems I have had with norton in the past, I wouldn't try; but would instead use the free or Home editions of Avast! or AVG Antivirus.

Is malwarebytes company a scam for keeping your computer clean of virus's, malware, hacking


Malwarebytes is indeed a reputable company. The Malwarebytes product is outstanding and free (https://www.malwarebytes.org/). The paid offering provides automatic checking for / downloading of the latest malware definition files to help stop malware before it can get to your computer. They offer a $25 subscription that will provide coverage for up to 3 PCs for 1 year. They may have other offers too. I have a subscription and have been very pleased with the product. Keep in mind that malware is NOT the same as malware. To be protected, you need to have anti-malware software AND antivirus software installed. Microsoft has FREE anti-virus software that automatically updates. You can read all about it and download it here:

Google chrome keeps crashing not sure why


You need to check out all these:
1. Check for Conflicting Software:
- Some third-party software can cause Google Chrome to crash. When this happens, you'll see the message "Whoa! Google Chrome has crashed. It's possible that you have malware that can cause Google Chrome to crash.
- Google Chrome has a hidden page that will tell you if any software on your system is known to conflict with Google Chrome. To access it, type chrome://conflicts into Chrome's address bar and press Enter.
- You can try to fix these crashes by updating, disabling, or uninstalling any conflicting third-party software listed in "about:conflicts" on your computer. Also, take a look at Google Chrome's known issues for specific solutions to resolve crashes caused by some software.
2. Scan for Malware
- This includes malware and network-related software that interferes with Google Chrome. Malware can also interfere with Google Chrome and cause it to crash.
- You can try using Malwarebytes, or other anti-virus software to scan for and remove malware or you can also try searching the web for information related to any conflicting modules listed on the chrome://conflicts page (Windows only), to see if there are other steps you can take to remove malware.
- Many crashes are caused by malware. If you're experiencing frequent crashes, try scanning your computer with antivirus software.
3. Solve Flash Crashes
- We have found that the Flash plugin Chrome includes can cause it to crash in some cases. If you are seeing regular Shockwave Flash crashes, you may want to try disabling the internal Flash plugin and using the standard Flash plugin in Google Chrome.
4. Switch to a New Profile
- Chrome crashes may be caused by a corrupted profile. You can test this by creating a new profile from Chrome's Settings screen. Open the Settings page from Chrome's menu and click Add new user under Users.
- Change to the new profile after creating it and see if the crashes continue to occur. You can sign into Chrome with your Google account to sync the data from your old profile. However, Google recommends you don't copy any files from the old profile folder by hand - they may be corrupted and causing the problem.
5. Fix System File Problems

- Google recommends running the SFC.EXE /SCANNOW program to check for - and fix - problems with protected system files on your Windows system if you are encountering crashes. To do this, locate the Command Prompt in your Start menu (press the Windows key and type Command Prompt), right-click it, and select Run as Administrator.
- Type the following command in the Command Prompt window and press Enter:
SFC.EXE /SCANNOW
- Windows will scan your computer for problems with system files and fix any problems it finds.
6. Hardware issues
- It can also cause Chrome crashes. You may want to test your computer's RAM and ensure it isn't faulty.

· If still problem not solve, maybe you should try these simple steps:
1. Try restarting your computer first. It could be that the computer has just encountered a slight glitch on your system, which is causing things to not work properly.
2. Remove and Re-install the Google Chrome application. Doing this will allow your computer to read the files a lot better and faster, and also repair any damaged or corrupt files that have been causing the issue. To remove the Google Chrome application, first insure that you have another browser, such as IE or Firefox, click "Start, Control Panel, Add / Remove Programs," locate "Google Chrome" click UNINSTALL next to it. When the application loads, select "REMOVE" (not repair). Follow the uninstall process, and restart your PC. Problems uninstalling or re-installing Chrome indicate mal- or spy-ware, which must be dealt with.
3. Remove any extensions that you have on Google Chrome. Although they are a great way to personalize your Internet browsing experience, they are not so good for speed and functionality, as many can cause the application to crash. To remove any extensions follow these steps: Open up Google Chrome. In the address bar type chrome: //extensions. Click Uninstall, or Click Disable if you think you may use the add-on in the future. Restart your browser.
4. Disable plug-ins. Chrome can get bogged down with plugins that you aren't using, also. Type about: plugins into Chrome; it will redirect to chrome://plugins. Disable any that you aren't currently using.
Hopefully your Google Chrome crash problems are gone. Hope it works. Sharing is always caring.

How do I turn on my wireless connection


If your computer will not connect to a wireless Internet signal, one of the first things to check is whether your computer's wireless switch is turned on.
Many laptop computers have a switch located on the exterior of the computer that controls its ability to connect to wireless networks.
This switch can be accidentally turned off, preventing users from connecting to the Internet.

Determine if your computer's wireless connectivity has been disabled by viewing the network icon in the lower toolbar on your computer's desktop.
When there is a disruption in your computer's Internet connection, the icon will have a red X through it. For further information, go to the computer's Network and Sharing Center where you can troubleshoot connectivity issues and view available wireless networks.
If the computer isn't recognizing any wireless connections (and you're sure that there are wireless signals in your area), the likely problem is that the wireless switch is turned off.
Locate the wireless switch on your computer.
It may be located on either side of the laptop or along the back or front.
If you aren't sure whether your computer has a wireless switch, check the user guide that came with the unit.
Determine whether the switch is currently in the "On" or "Off" position.
The switch will be clearly labeled.
Push the switch in the direction of the "On" position to ensure that it is turned on.
If the switch was already turned on, see if there is a keyboard combination that will activate your laptop's wireless capability.
The key combination for your laptop will depend on your computer's manufacturer, but will generally involve a combination of the Function, Control or Alt and the F1 to F12 keys.
Check your user manual for your computer's key combination.

I have internet explorer now can't load it crashes


How long has it been crashing? Sounds like you might have a virus. If you can't download another browser i.e. Firefox, Chrome, then try system restore to the time before it started crashing. If this doesn't work then download Firefox onto a thumb drive from another computer then install it. You can install the latest internet explorer from microsoft with the link below. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/internet-explorer/products/ie/home
I would Download Malwarebytes antimalware to see if you have a virus.

It said that my mozilla firefox has crashed,how will i be able to fix it as soon as possible


A browser "crash" is not a permanent problem. It simply means the browser has encountered a problem during that browsing session, and cannot continue running. The browser will then usually close. (If not, you should terminate the browser program - Use the Windows Task Manager, or restart the computer if necessary.) When you restart the browser, it should then function normally again.

There are many factors that can lead to a browser crash. Those can include glitches in the browser's code, or problems with the operating system, or problems with a particular site that has been visited. Most current browsers (Firefox, IE, Chrome) are quite stable, but nearly every browser will experience a crash from time to time. It's a small annoyance, but not a cause for serious concern.

To minimize the likelihood of a browser crash (and other system malfunction), you should make sure that:
(1) your browser is up-to-date, and
(2) your operating system has all patches and updates installed.
The current version of Firefox is 3.6.15. It's also good idea to run a full anti-virus scan of your computer periodically, and to do other forms of regular maintenance (disk defragmentation, eliminate temporary & junk files, scan for registry errors).

APPCRASH error please help


When program files or files within your computer's registry have become corrupted, this can cause the programs to unexpectedly crash. When a program crashes, you will likely get an Appcrash error. The error message will say "Windows Media Player (or whichever program has crashed) has stopped working" and then list rows of technical information regarding the cause of the crash. Unless you are a computer programmer, you may never fully understand what caused your program crash, but that doesn't mean that you can't fix it.
Delete any new programs that you have downloaded. Often, the cause of corruption in a computer system are bad downloads that bring harmful files onto your computer. If you started to get the Appcrash error on your system after downloading a new program or software from the Internet, it's highly likely you have downloaded a bad product. Use the "Add/Remove Programs" feature in your "Control Panel" to get rid of the program immediately.
Uninstall the program that is crashing. It is possible to fix the program's corrupted files while the program is still installed, but to make sure that you clear the program files completely, it is safest to completely uninstall it from the system.
Run a full scan of your computer. Your computer should already have antivirus software installed that can scan for corrupted files and either fix them or delete them from your system. If you do not have antivirus software on your computer, that could be a big part of the problem. Purchase and install antivirus software as soon as possible. These are designed tor from outside threats. Once you have the antivirus program installed, open it and click "Scan Computer." The antivirus scan will isolate bad files and you will be given the option to remove them from your system.
  1. Reinstall the program that was crashing. Now that the corrupted files have all been removed, your program should run smoothly after reinstallation.
  2. Check for program incompatibility. If, after a thorough scan and cleaning of your computer and reinstallation of your program, the Appcrash errors continue, the program you are trying to use may not be compatible with your program. For instance, there are some DVD softwares, such as Media Now, that do not work correctly with Windows Vista. These lists can be easily found online. If this is the case, you will have to purchase a software program that is compatible with your OS
You should download a program such as RegCure and run it from time to time. If you are unable to download a copy let me know and I will give you a link on my web where you can download it.
