I cant down loade an antivirus on my pc!


Make sure your protection level is set low enough on your browser to allow downloads. Sometimes virus protection software already installed will not allow other protection software to be downloaded. If that is the case then you will need to remove any protection software on your system before trying to download a different product.

What are the viruses


A computer virus is a software program, script, or macro designed to infect, destroy, modify, or cause other problems with your computer or software programs. The user may protect him by using an anti-virus protection program. The anti-virus protection program designed to detect, protect, and clean any computer viruses. This is the most basic way to define a computer virus. There are tens of thousands of viruses out there with many more created on a daily basis. The protection program needs to updating on a constant basis. The computer needs updated with its running system, email and files in order to keep a completely safe PC. The normal use of any computer still puts the system at risk of being compromised by hackers unless you provide an anti-virus program for your protection along with a personal firewall.

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
http://www.microsoft.com

Spybot - Search & Destroy 1.5.2 FREE Spyware Program
http://www.download.com/Spybot-Search-De…

Avast FREE Anti-Virus Protection

AVG FREE-Anti-Virus Protection

Ccleaner FREE

http://www.kaspersky.com

There are alot of $ anti-virus and Internet security programs out there,
ie: Norton, McAfee, Panda, Bitdefender. If you would like to pay $
then get Kaspersky-- 2009-2010 , I feel that is the best for your money.

REMEMBER TO KEEP UP THE DAILY MAINTENANCE ON ALL OF YOUR COMPUTERS.!

Hope this helps.

Good Luck

MSCONFIG allows you to stop programs from starting up when you boot up your computer to windows. This is good cause it will allow your computer to run quicker and more efficient cause less memory will be used. Virus protection is important cause it protects your files and Operating System from corrupting on you due to infections from spyware, malware, trojans, viruses, etc. A good free one if you don't have Mcafee or Norton is AVG and its free on the internet from: free.avg.com

Everybody has different opinions on what anti-virus program is good so decide for yourself which way you want to go. Hope this helps.
