I think I have a virus


I would download freeware MALWAREBYTES: http://www.filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/ In Safe Mode with Networking if necessary. In the install UNCHECK the Trial Pro Version, you want the freeware version, run a FULL scan, delete ALL results, reboot normally. I use AVAST FREE 8.0.1489: http://www.fixya.com/answer/answerpageslideview.aspx?ctg=8&thid=18108057 Haven had a Virus in years. Give it a try, it's always rated high in Anti Virus and it's free! First, of course, you have to remove McAfee with the McAfee removal Tool found on the McAfee website.

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.

I bought the MCafee Anti-Virus 2011 because my free trial had expired and i had a ton of malware , trojons ect. I registered but it will not install??


Sounds like whatever virus or malware you have on your laptop is keeping mcafee from being installed. Two suggestions for you is to try these other two programs out, they are both free:
Malwarebytes is located here. Try installing it, most of the time it will go thru.
Microsoft has there own malware tool located here. With this tool you download it and then just run it because it doesnt install.
If either of these tools find any viruses or malware, let it remove them. Now at this point reboot your computer and then try installing mcafee. At this point it should install. If it doesn't then there is something going on with windows. At that point I would call Mcafee because they might have to work in the windows registry to get it to take. Good Luck!

Runs very slow,has been repaired twice for viruses


Have you tried a Disk Cleanup? This can often cause computers to run slowly. Look under Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools.

My Mcafee anti-virus is about to finish,how do I install Advast free,do I download advast then uninstall/delete Mcafee then install advast free with Reg key. Thanx in advance !!!


Multiple anti-virus programs on a computer conflict with each other, as well as installation may fail when trying to install one Anti-virus program when another one is still on the computer.

Download Avast
Disable your internet connection, or unplug the ethernet cable
Uninstall McAfee
Install Avast
Hook your internet back up
Use your reg key and update Avast.

You just don't want an unsecured computer with an active internet connection even during the short period of time between uninstalling the old one and installing the new one

CAN I HAVE 2 ANTI VIRUS INSTALLED WITH ONE DELETED FROM STARTUP?


I have installed AVG Free on many computers and have not had any problems with it. It does a good job of cleaning up infected systems.

I also recommend AVAST, http://www.avast.com which is free for non-commercial, home use. You only need to register it once per year. It has a very good boot time scanner that I use to clean up systems that won't otherwise boot, or have very persistent viruses.
