PC Cillan antivirus program does not work

I have a dell inspiron 2650 laptop using pccillan virus protection. Every day the program downloads an update. recently the updates stop in mid stream and an error message pops up saying something about debugging. Then the sceeen freezes up.

Any ideas.

The subscription ends in June and I was thinking of switching to free avg, is that a wise decision?

Your two options would be to re-install PC Cillan and then update the virus definitions or switch to AVG free now. Since you paid for the PC Cillan you might as well get your monies worth. If the reinstall fails then your only choice is to switch to AVG. I have used AVG and prefer it over many other anti-virus programs.

Why does windows security center show that my anti virus isn't working when it is. I don't have a green light.

What OS and what Anti Virus program are you running?
The OS will recognize some AV products and not others. You can tell the Operating system you will monitor the Anti-Virus software yourself.

In addition to the collection of anti-virus programs I would recommend some cleaning and analyst programs to speed up your computer.

I can't use it at all.

Download this program:

Click on the blue tab on that web page to download the free version and once installed run a quick scan.

Delete everything it finds and reboot after its finished.

Its a great program and will even find hidden files that other virus scanners dont seem to pick up.
