My pavilion dv7 17" won't allow me to install mcafee anti virus


Before you can do anything, uninstall norton antivirus, go to control panel and click on it, a list of items will come up, when norton shows select remove and wait for the program to uninstall, and restart the computer, go back in and remove norton live update and any other program pertaining to norton. If you have windows 7 go to my computer and "click" on top select uninstall, and follow the outline above. Now you should be able to install the program.

Apparantley i have a trojan worm in my lap top, i have norton and caled them they say i have a problem and my laptop is out of warranty and i have to purchase another one is this true


NO, you do NOT have to purchase a new laptop.

What the people at Norton probably meant was that your Norton anti virus software has expired and you need to purchase a new anti virus subscription from Norton if you want them to help you.

There are however other anti virus software manufacturers out there that are free and/or will allow you a 30 day trial period.

To help you clean out the worm in your system:

  • Find out the name of the worm you have on your system (your norton program will tell you this).
  • Go to this page: http://free.avg.com/us-en/virus-removal
  • Click on the link that has the same name as the worm on your system (don't worry about the I-worm or W32 part of the name, e.g. if your worm name contains navidad you want to click the I-worm/navidad link or if your worm name contains bugbear you want to click the I-worm/Bugbear.C link etc.)
  • Follow the instructions on the page you get to in order to get rid of your problem.
Hope this helps ;)

Laptop infected with worm.


Nortons sucks. you should try an anti-virus scan with Malwarebytes, then you should install Avast as your resident protection. 

Be sure, when uninstalling Nortons, to use the uninstallation tool found on the nortons site. if you use the regular windows uninstaller, it will not remove all of it, and it will slow your computer down.

Laptop infected with worm? Help


No virus checker catches them all, and frankly, Norton 360 is pretty weak. Try running AVG, which is downloadable and free.

Cannot uninstall Norton - get 'ERROR 9999.174' message.


Try to start your windows on safe mode.
To do it restart your computer and press F8 button before windows logon appear then you will start windows on safe mode.
After you start windows on safe mode go to control panel again and try to remove it.

Virus Worm/VB.DKT


I prefer AVG all the time and i recommended it to so many frineds too ..but sometimes its really hard to break a virus code. Anyways one solution i always use. Unistall AVG from your system, if your system is running fine right now download Norton Trial version. It has full fledged features for 15 days. Use this Trial version to remove the virus and then uninstall it
Reinstall AVG again
You can try other antivirus like Avast, McCaffee etc in same way in place of norton
Hope it helps !!
If nothing works try to restore your system in some back date in safe mode.
Good luck !!

Try turning the brightness up. You can usually do this by holding down the blue "Fn" key, and then hitting the key (usually the F8 or 8 key) with the blue "brighter sun" on it.

Norton detects SKYPE as a worm


Norton is very bad for false positives. 2005 is way out of date anyways. My suggestion: use Firefox, Avas Antivirus and Komodo firewall. That combination makes web browsing very safe. When Norton is uninstalled,  there seems to be a huge weight lifted off your system.
