Avast is a good anti-virus and it is free and light weight too. AVG has got too big to recommend anymore and slows down your computer. Only run one anti-virus program at a time as more than one can cause lots of problems.

You should have an anti-adware too. Ad-Aware or Spybot are good ones and are free. You can find all of these with Google.

Yes there is a very good virus program you can download and its free. I use it as do many companies. It's called AVG. Got to www.free.avg.com and download it and you can start using it immediately. If you have any problems let me know..

Error 2503 installing and uninstalling Skype and Adobe Reader. Ran the Fixit from Microsoft website but it is still not fixed. Uninstalled Skype and now can't install it.


They are pretty easy to install and without much user intervention. Maybe your virus protection is blocking it. Turn off your virus protection.

Click Start/Control Panel and look for Uninstall or Programs and Features or Add or Remove Programs (depends on your operating system) and see if you can uninstall them there.

I cannot access any programs or the internet. I keep getting virus or infected messages and am being asked to buy a virus protecting software. I believe that I have been invaded. How to recover my computer...


The one asking you to buy the software itself is a Malware. I suggest you to Install Malware Bytes (Freeware) easily availble in the net and run it.

That should take care of it.

Good Luck.

My computer is slow. What can I do without


Depends- where is it exactly slow? is it while surfing the internet, or when running progrmas? either way, you can make it go faster.
If your internet is slow, you should scan your computer for viruses and spyware using suitable programs(for example- avast anti virus or spybot). If you still experience the same problem I would advise you to delete the computer after backing it up, and then installing a new copy of Windows.

if your problem is with programs running slowly- I can advise you to download this software, which can extremely help- CCleaner

Looking for screensavers which I can download for my laptop. Why is this such a problem?


It kinda is because lots of people like to use this as engine for viruses and spyware. Most free ones have some kinda spyware which is not good. If you wanna pay for one it is waist of money. I would google it and read notes and also make sure you have good virus protection. U can make one from your pictures or just put a folder of favorite pictures and use that. Maybe not an answer you wanted but it is an honest one. Hope this helps.

Very very slow to do anything


Sounds to me, you might be infected. Be sure and Back-up everything, before you can't do anything. Here is some good information for you.

Go to www.trendmicro.com, and do the free scan Trend Micro's House Call virus, spyware and malware scanner and cleaner.
http://housecall.trendmicro.com
If you have anything, remove them.

Download Spybot Search & Destroy. Restart computer, then run Spybot to see what spyware comes up.

FYI---Virus Protection-- 2 programs of virus protection will conflict with each other and will actually cancel out the protection. .

Running Spybot Search & Destroy with EITHER Avast or Avg (great Free virus protection programs ) will keep a computer in good working condition. FREE

Somthing new FROM MICROSOFT. Security Essentials

Can't find virus protection program


The ones that come free with purchase are generally a trial offer and you will have to pay for future protection.

AVAST FREE is the best Anti-Virus I've seen, once you register by e-mail they send you an activation code and it is done

Besides, I'm a firm believer of free.
