Firewall should be all you need....

antivirus will protect you against email viruses and WEB browser downloads.

I would also recommend you use MS Windows Defender...

How to uninstalled the expired AVAST antivirus from my PC?


Normal UninstallThe first thing you want to try is to locate Avast in the Add/Remove Control Panel and try to remove it from there. Follow these instructions to accomplish this.

1) Click on Start, Control Panel
2) Open Add/Remove Programs
3) Find Avast in the Programs list and highlight it
4) Click Remove and follow the prompts to uninstall Avast
Using the Avast Uninstall UtilityIf for some reason the normal uninstall does not work, you may have to download Avast's own Uninstall Utility.

1) Click on the following link and download the Avast Uninstall Utility to your desktop

http://files.avast.com/files/eng/aswclear.exe

2) Double-click on the file ASWCLEAR and run it
3) You should see the following screen

avastuninstall.jpg

4) Click on the ellipsis and choose the folder where Avast is installed. This folder is usually in the Program Files directory. Ex. C:\Program Files\Avast

Be very careful which folder you choose since whatever folder is chosen will be completely deleted from your computer.

5) Once the uninstall has completed, reboot your computer. You may then try to reinstall it or another antivirus.

If for some reason the uninstall utility does not remove it, you may have to reinstall a newer version of Avast to then proceed to uninstall or you may have an issue where multiple antivirus programs are showing in the Windows Security Center.

Hope this help!

I am having problem in installing any antivirus.... infact m unable to do that....:( previously despite having kespersky updated ( 3o days trail) i had virus in my system..... what can i do to keep my...


Hi there,

First uninstall your current antivirus, it's just a trial anyway.
Download the free version of Malware Bytes. http://www.malwarebytes.org/
Update it then run it. (Check for malwares)

Then download the Microsoft Security Essentials. This one is for free as well. http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/
Update it then run it. (Check for viruses)

Microsoft Security Essentials will protect your system real-time while the free version of Malware Bytes will not. So you have to run malware bytes if you suspect something got in your computer.

Don't worry because they don't conflict each other.

Lastly, make sure that your windows firewall is turned ON.
If you are using windows XP, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, click Run, type Firewall.cpl, and then click OK.
  2. On the General tab, click On (recommended).
  3. Click OK.
If you are using Windows Vista or Windows 7, follow these steps:
  1. 1. Click start, type check firewall status in the search box. A result will be shown above.
  2. 2. Click check firewall status from the results. A window will open.
  3. 3. On the left side of that window Click Turn Windows Firewall On or Off.
  4. 4. Select the option that says Turn On Windows Firewall. (There should be 2, one for Home/Private and another for Public).
You should be protected now.
Keep me posted.

I every time open my computer one massage is open on my desktop your system may be at risk how to solve this problem


Windows is alerting you that you have either

1. No firewall settings configured, no firewall, or turned off windows firewall

or

2. No anti-virus/anti-malware software

To solve number one, you should turn on the windows firewall or install a 3rd party firewall program of your choosing. To turn on windows firewall, follow this procedure for Windows XP:

1. START > Control Panel > Security Center
2. When security center opens, look for the section "Manage Security Settings For" then click "Windows Firewall."
3. In the Dialog box that comes up, click the circle in front of "On" to turn on the firewall. This setting may already be turned on. Verify the firewall is turned on.
4. Click "Ok" to save your choices and exit, or "Cancel" to close the window without saving any choices.

If you choose to install a 3rd party firewall program, use the above procedure and select "OFF" in step 3. You want to do this so that there will not be conflicts between the Windows Firewall and the 3rd party firewall program. Once you turn off Windows firewall, immediately install and turn on your 3rd party firewall program to minimize exposing your computer to threats.

For number two, you should install a quality anti-virus or anti-malware program. McAfee, and Norton are popular choices. Avast! Antivirus, AVG and Malware Bytes are a bit more comprehensive, especially Malware Bytes. Avast! Antivirus is free, both to download and update. The license lasts a year, but you can simply re-download and install the program to get a fresh new license that's good for a year. Each program has varying features and goodies, so choose the one that's best for you.

Hi,
I believe that there is an old anti virus on your system so you need to follow this...
1. Download the Norton Removal Tool, to your desktop (do NOT Run it yet.)
http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPOR...3108162039
2. Disconnect from the internet and close all programs, and REBOOT.
3. Uninstall Norton with Control Panel> Add/Remove Programs.
4. IMMEDIATELY enable the Windows Firewall!
5. Double-click on the file you saved in #1 above to run the utility. Do
NOT touch your keyboard until the run has completed, then REBOOT (again).
6. Install better antivirus, such as Eset's NOD32, Kaspersky or Avast!

I need to install an antivirus on someone's computer, and a firewall is blocking installation, but I can't even FIND the firewall on the computer.


Not sure if its a firewall, I would suggest to try the avast home antivirus from www.avast.com its free, I've been using it myself for years.

Give it a try and see if it installs.
