Also when i start the computer sometimes an error message comes saying log in error with that send and don't send option. Can you tell me the reason.

I need to restore my computer so I can get online to get antiviru

download AVG on someone elses computer, put it on a disk. uninstall your old antivirus and install AVG. AVG is free and very good. (google AVG).
If your computer is not online, you are not exposed to much malicious software. I certainly thing restoring your computer will do nothing to reactivate your old antivirus.

You need to run these 3 essential programs to remove all the spyware on your computer.

If you do not have an internet security suit and only an anti virus
1. Run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
2. Run a complete scan with free curing utility Dr.Web CureIt!
3. Run the anti spyware removal programs spybot or Superantispyware
Use Mozilla firefox or the google chrome browser for browsing unsafe websites

Install ThreatFire.ThreatFire, features innovative real-time behavioral protection technology that provides powerful standalone protection or the perfect complement to traditional signature-based antivirus programs offers unsurpassed protection against both known and unknown zero-day viruses, worms, trojans, rootkits, buffer overflows, spyware, adware and other malware.
Run an online virus scan like Trend Micro HouseCall,F-Secure Online Virus Scanner etc etc
update your software by running
Secunia Online Software Inspector
Install a good antivirus in your computer.
Keep your antivirus updated. If automatic updates are available, configure your antivirus to use them.
Keep your permanent antivirus protection enabled at all times.

If i have alot of viruses on my computer can i still use the norton AntiVirus installation kit? i've been trying but it won't install....

i assume you have an old version of norton, so it will be out of date, go here for AVG free with anti spyware (choose the avg free download), it's also free updates.

We are a Church and do not have a credit card to enable me to renew Anti Virus Protection online. Is it possible to be billed and pay by cheque?

Do not renew your subscription. I am guessing it is Norton(Symantec) or McAfee, unfortunately both of these once reputable anitivirus applications have become loaded with a lot of intrusive software that eats up system resources and slows your computer down.
Use a free antivirus application like AVG, Avast or NOD32. These free applications are just as good if not better to be honest, than either Norton or McAfee.
Here is a link to download the free version of AVG 8.0.
I am the securities moderator on another forum and AVG is by far the most popular antivirus package.

Have 26 viruses on my computer i just want to take it back to factory setting will that help and how do i do that i had types of norton antii virses protection on it

You don't need to format your computer lesaharmstro. All you have to do is uninstall the current copy of your anti virus, and install a fresh new copy of avast 4 home edition.

To download the Avast 4 home edition for free, click on the follwing hyperlink:

Scan and delete all viruses.

Then download a registry cleaner. It'll fix all bugs in your computer, such as system errors, etc. As well as remove spyware.

Download the reg cleaner by clicking on the following link:

Run the program, select the necessary boxes, and click repair.

Hope this helps
