I am not install any anti-virus. e.g. avg/ avast


If you don't have any anti-virus in your computer, you have the option to buy or to download a free anti-virus which you can get from the net. I have a list of free anti-virus that you can take a look on and it's up to you to decide which one you would install.

Note: It's not advisable to have two or more anti-virus running in your computer because it will result to a problem.

Here is a list of the free anti-virus. Click on them so that you will be directed to the page where you can download them.

1. AVG Free Edition for Windows

2. Avira AntiVir Personal for Windows

3. Avast Home Edition for Windows

Thank you for using fixya,

Trying to load Avast anti- virus & get an error message can't "configure set-up"

The most current version of Avast is 5.0 and you can download the free version by Clicking Here. If you decide to go with the newer version I would recommend making sure that the 4.6 is removed.If you have issues removing 4.6 use the cleaning tool, you can find the removal tool by Clicking Here
Do you receive this error after you install Avast or after when you try and launch?
Do you have Microsoft Anti-Spyware installed?
Try running the install during a cleanboot:
Make sure that you have removed any setup files from the previous failed install, using the removal tool posted above if needed. Start the System Configuration Utility
  1. Click Start, click Run, type msconfig, and then click OK.
  2. The System Configuration Utility dialog box is displayed
  3. Select the Start Up tab
  4. Make note of any programs you may have already turned off, once you have done that select disable all
  5. Now Select the Services tab
  6. Make sure you check off Hide All Microsoft Services before making any changes
  7. Take note of any services you have turned off and then select disable all
  8. Click Apply and then OK
  9. Reboot the system and try installing 4.6 again

Unable to install a avast antivirus

This usually happens when there is an existing anti virus present. Make sure you remove your old anti virus completely. The best way to do this is by going into "Safe Mode" turn computer off. Turn it back on and continually press F8 you will eventually get a black screen with a bunch of options. Go to "Safe Mode" and press enter. Once the computer starts, remove old anti virus using "add Remove programs" in the control panel. Now you should be able to install the new anti virus. Hope this helps.

Norton Anti-virus will not launch

If you have access to another computer download avast anti-virus and malwarebytes anti-malware and burn to cd or use a flash drive. Malwarebytes will remove that PC Defender rouge anti-virus software and any other malware you may have,

If you don't have another computer you can download the files to try booting into safe mode with networking. This option should allow you to download and install the programs above,

If your able to download them run anti-malware first. Let t fix what it can. Then install avast anti-virus, when asked if you want to schedule a boot time scan say yes, then when asked to reboot say no and open avast and update it, When prompted to reboot do so.

Hope this helps

Computer is 3 weeks old.DLL module missing.cant open mirco works.did scan on computer,3000 errors were found

suggest downloading avast anti virus home addition from the avast website here , the home adition is free and auto updates, free to register too. after you have installed and done a pc scan with avast anti virus, may i suggest that you type in the specific DLL file you want from the google search engine. many sites sould have one for you to download. please get the anti virus first as your pc can get infected as soon as you turn one on. 'ad aware', ccleaner are two other programs i personally use and wouldnt be without either. good luck :)
