You should not have to erase all of your programs,, not without first trying to kill the virus,,you can do what is called an online scan,,just go to:

use the button on the left,and do a online scan,,,do not shut the computer down until it is finished,,if you are running on batteries,,,please plug your laptop in at this point,,it may take a half hour or copy the link i have sent you.

Have programmed a new pin, but the old pin still works. How do I get rid of the old pin? Have tried multiple times and the new pin works, but so does the old one.

If you hold the smart/learn button in for 6 seconds it will erase all the codes from memory and then program the keypad. Just remember before you start that none of your other remotes will work and you will have to program them.

I want to erase everything on my external hard drive. How do I do this?

If you aren't sure what you're doing, bring it to a service tech or you may render that external hard drive completely useless:
Before you start cleaning make sure you back everything up onto another disk. If you are giving your computer away check with the person or organization to see if they plan on cleaning your hard drive for you. However, the best thing to do is to clean it yourself.
Download a hard drive cleaning program or go to a computer store that sells computer software and buy the program. This is the safest way to make sure the hard drive is all wiped clean. Running the software program over writes all the data on your drive, making the hard drive impossible for anyone to read. The software works by over writing the drive many times.
Make sure you give yourself plenty of time in wiping your hard drive clean because if you have a lot of stuff it will take longer to clean.
Once your running your program and the box comes up to erase your hard drive don't forget that this process is irreversible. You will now type in the word format drive letter and hit confirm that you want to erase everything on your computer.
Installing a new external hard drive if you are not getting rid of your computer, is another option you have. You still go about erasing the old drive because you're getting rid of your hard drive. Install the new one.

My laptop is new but it's slowing down with everything and i'm sure if its the fact we have some free protection and we havent been able to erase one trail protection or a music site the kids downloaded.

Did you go to the control panel then programs? Once there delete the programs and restart the computer. That should repair the problem of the programs still there. Check your start menu also and make sure you do not have any unneeded things starting at start up. This will slow you down also, do a disc clean up in system tools to get rid of unneeded junk on your computer.

You have previously been advised on how to get AV software and to scan your phone once connected by USB cable. Try either avast! or AVG Free.

Driver installation problem: vira.drv is unreadable!

if you have any firewalls or virus scanners running please remove them for install purposes only.

please uninstall then reinstall the software without the firewall or antivirus activated.

you can also go

Start--->Run--->type: msconfig---->in the general go to diagnostic startup---->accept, close and reboot

Install the software it should install now.

Then reboot

then goto

Start--->Run--->msconfig---->in the general options to to normal startup--->accept, close and reboot
