Windows antivirus I was given this computer and I installed AVG and I want to get rid of the windows antivirus program as it keeps saying it has detected spyware infection. I can't get in touch with the previous owner so I can't be the administrator on this computer. Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

How i keep my pc safe, clear & malware free?

You can keep your PC Clean from viruses and malware by downloading and installing a couple of programs

AVG Free
Avast Antivirus
These are both free and great, i personally lean towards the use of AVG

CCleaner is a program which removes all your temp files which is usually where malware is kept

and finally
Spybot S&D
Spybot removes any Malware software that has been installed

all these programs are completely free or have a free version

Hope this helps.

The Panda antivirus keeps telling me danger I need to restart my computer, and when I do nothing changes, it still gives the same message

Get rid of Panda, uninstall it and install AVG from http:\\
Once you've done that run a full scan, and scan for spyware/malware also with a decent scanner like malwarebytes anti-malware

Im unable to says installation failed due to error...wht should i do?

Get rid of Norton

SPEAKING WITH MY EXPERIENCE: Either try Security Essentials from Microsoft OR Avast. There’s free software out there to try.

Helpful Free Software below Read On.

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

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

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


Avira AntiVir

NEW *****Somthing new FROM MICROSOFT.*** 2009 ---Security Essentials

Pop up Blocker ** free******

*****Spybot - Search & Destroy 1.5.2 ****



**Ccleaner*** FREE…

***Malware**** FREE

$ *** KASPERSKY ***

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***-- 2010 ,

I feel that is the best for your money.


Good Luck. If you think this is good information, , please rate me.

There are total 29 spyware,trojan rougeand adware viruses in the pc ican get rid of all these please .product is window vista.hp pavilion intel core 2 quad processor

You gave no mention of anti spyware or antivirus programs.

You need to reboot your computer in safe mode (F8) as it is starting.

Once in Safe Mode, run your antispyware, antivirus and antimalware programs. then restart in normal mode and run them again.

If you have none of these programs, try:

Advance system Care
- anti spyware
AVG AntiVirus
Security 360 - anti malware, trojans

good luck

Antivirus 2008 is an adware program - a form of virus. You should be able to get rid of it using a good antispyware program or something like norton antivirus. If you do not have a program installed I suggest you try using spyware doctor:

Together these programs should help solve your problem and prevent further virus infection.
