Re: Uninstallation Problem

First thing to do is  Back up the Registry. I'll be saying more about the Registry later. But suffice it to say that the presence of uninstalled security
software in the Registry can conflict with newly installed securitysoftware and cause system freezes. So can folders of "uninstalled"programs for that matter. Once again, go to Start, then click on "Run". Type in "regedit" Go to the top of the Regedit window.  Click (+) next to HKEY_CURRENT_USER. Go down the thread until you see  Software. 
Click on Software and scroll down the thread until you see Symantec. Right click on Symantec and choose "Delete". From there go down to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and repeat step 
3. Restart your PC.  Click (+) next to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, now: Click (+) next to Software,Click (+) next to Microsoft, Click (+) next to Windows and Click (+)next to CurrentVersion. Select the Run folder.  Right-click and delete each Symantec entry you see (if present). Restart your PC.

Re: Uninstallation Problem

Well if you want to delete click start->run->type "msconfig" In the configuration window click on services tab. Uncheck all the entries named symantec or norton. Now click on STARTUP tab and uncheck the symatec startup entries. Now restart the computer and try deleting once again. By the way that access denied message is displayed because the file u want to delete is being used by some symantec service if unselect and restart they will be terminated so that you ca delete the folder.

I have a problem with my laptop acer travelmate 550. Display an error number 0280 previous boot incomplete default configaration used press F1 to resume, F2 to setup

Possible that PC is hanging up as there is fault on the OS ( operating system) or a virus in the OS. Also it is possible that the back up( CMOS) has low voltage or the memory card is a suspect. In this case you need to check the voltage and also try and swap a memory card. If not the OS is a suspect.

It is best to go for a paid antivirus software which you can get in a package. Personally we are not recommending any particular company but you can try with Avira, Antivir, AVG, Kaspersky. It is always best to install the antivirus when the installation of the OS is done.

Now before this you can open the internet options in the browser and clean all the cookies, temporary internet files, defragment the drives and RESTORE the PC to an earlier set date.

You can use a registry cleaner like Advanced system care. Download from the site and check you system for corrupt files. Also use a good antivirus software which is active to keep your system performing without an attack on the OS. Remove all unnecessary programs installed which you do not use all the time and clean up the drives. This will free up the space and make your system faster.
If there is no response but the PC tends to work slower and occasionally hanging when a program is being executed then you might have to install the OS once again. Install the OS and then an antivirus before the drivers of the PC is installed.

Not instal kespersky antivirus,now how to instal that

Sounds like you're having troubles installing Kaspersky Antivirus (KAV). You will need to uninstall any existing security software before installing KAV. Restart the computer. I recommend downloading the latest version from After downloading the installer, run the application. It will ask you for a product key to activate the software, so you will need to have/purchase that.

Tried to install nortan on sony vaio laptop next day i tried to start laptop it shows the system menu but then image error pops up with a black screen. cannot use laptop i think i may have lost data....

There might be a problem during the installation of norton. What you can try to do is to perform a system restore and bring back the computer to an earlier date before you install norton or befor you get the problem. Here are the steps on how to do it:

  1. restart the computer
  2. press F8 key repeatedly when you see the VAIO logo until you get the screen that says Advanced boot option
  3. use the arrow keys on the keyboard to highlight safemode then press enter
  4. when it loads to safemode, go to start menu
  5. go to all programs
  6. click accessories
  7. click system tools the select system restore
  8. on the system restore window, click next
  9. in choose a different restore point, you will see list of dates or calendar where you can pick a date that you want to use in restoring back the computer settings.
  10. click on the next button again
  11. click finish
the computer will start restoring the settings back to the selected date which may take for a few mins(2mins to 10mins usually). system restore does not delete any personal files/documents. It only undo software applications, updates and settings.

Recovery Disc will not work

That's terrible. The right soution should be to try Ashampoo Uninstaller or similar software that gets off EVERY BIT of unwanted software. Use function "Install new applications". It asks for setup.exe, install.exe or similar executable file, that runs Antivirus 360 installer. Point to it. After all the installations completes, "Ashampoo Uninstaller" logs the installation. Now uninstall the unwanted program using "Uninstall logged programs". That's it!

Initializing error :registry value is not of binary type

First of all, its AVG, not AGV. Now the solution. 
You may be trying to install AVG when you have already one antivirus program running. OR you had once installed AVG sometimes in the past, but uninstallation was not properly done. Hence it is showing registry key error.

1. If you are running any anitvirus prog now, first uninstall it. Then restart the machine.

2. Now you try install AVG. it should install. if not, try the following

Go to system restore and create restore point for safety.

go to run and type regedit and then enter

Press cntrl + F for finding earlier registry keys of AVG. Try to find out all old registry keys amd delete them all.

Restart the machine. Its DONE.
