Mcafee installation retail card

Prior to installing McAfee, were you already running another anti-virus, even an expired version? If so, that is your likely culprit. To rectify this situation do the following: Power computer on and press f8 to open safe mode. On some computer's, one must time this just right; so, if you do not enter safe mode on the first try, then repeat and quickly press f8 until you do. Once you are in safe mode, scroll down and click on safe mode with networking so you will have internet access during this process. Now, go to control panel and then to remove programs. Uninstall both the McAfee and any other anti-virus programs listed. Save all changes and exit safe mode and turn computer off for one full minute. Your computer should now be working again and you should be able to reinstall the McAfee and with no impact upon the performance of your computer.

I think i have a virus-pc is slow starting up takes a long time to open windows

Start your PC and press F8 several times until the boot menu comes up. Then select "Safe Mode with Networking". Now get some or ALL of the FREE programs below.

Download, Install and Run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware:
When Installing choose the non-pro version.

Download, Unzip, Install and Run TDSSKiller:

Download, Install and Run Super Anti-Spyware:

If you have an outdated Anti-virus program then Download, Install and Run Avira Anti-Virus:
Make sure to select ALL of the "threat categories" when you install or configure Avira.

You should be in pretty good shape if you run and install all of these programs.

My AVG can not uninstall, what should i do so that I can install the new version?

Boot in Safe Mode and do the uninstall from there - in normal mode the autoprotection is active and prevents all attempts to change the files of the program. and you can't disable that without extensive modifications of the settings . In Safe Mode the program is inactive so the autoprotection is off.

Dell Dimension L733R Windows Explorer hang

Hi, yes XP does have system restore, which you can access through safe mode, pressing the ESC key during bootup will get you there. I would not uninstall IE8, but disable by using Firefox which is a much safer browser for XP, you can down load this for free.
Hope this helps

Avira antivir guard: attention, dtection window

If it's the free version of Antivir that you are using then there is no way to disable the pop up advertising window.
I use Antivir myself and i have looked everywhere to try and find how to disable the annoying pop up with no luck.
If you don't want any annoying adverts then try AVG Free instead.
