You can go to safe mode to disable or remove one of them... upon turning on your laptop, continuously press F8 and when it gives you options just select safe mode using the UP or DOWN arrow keys... it will log you into your profile and disable all the system startup including the firewalls... you'll be able to disable or remove them by then...

hope this helps you...

Installing purchased Anti Virus program has been challenging. After several attempts to download - no success.


Several firewalls are known to interfere with the download of Anti- Virus software. I recommend you switch it off while downloading and installing the Anti-virus. Some even recommend removing the firewall and installing it after you have installed the Anti-virus.

Bought stopzilla anti virus on line, everytime i send registration key number it comes back failed


There could be 2 reasons for this problem.
1. Either you have got a fake software
2. Or you have got a key for a different download of the same software.

You can always contact them through their live Chat facility in their website.

Note: If you have licensed copy of Windows OS then you can download Windows Security Essentials. It has
1. Anti-Virus,
2. Anti-Spyware.
3. Firewall,
4. Real time protection
5. Automatic update of virus definition and detection engine
6. Total solution for online and other security threats.
And It comes absolutely free. When you are getting such a great product for free why to try unknown software?

All my printers cords are plugged in correctly but as i go to print it says that the printer isn't communicating with the computer, I've tried everything that they suggest and nothing seems to work.


uninstal all of the printer software if your down loading drivers from the web download and save to your desk top. disconnect from the web disable your anti virus software and firewall. then run the install from your desktop. follow the same steps if your using a disk anti virus and firewall disabled. alot of these software programs see all in one drivers as virus like activity and wont allow a complete install.

My aspire unti virus database is out of date


hi thanks for using fixya!

What is your anti virus? Try to make a live update for your windows and anti virus. Try to check your window firewall, it must be turned on.

Try to conduct a full scan by using your anti virus.
If still doesn't work, I suggest that you format your laptop, the viruse might infected your system.

Regards!

If you need further assistance, let me know.

Pls rate me positively! thanks!
