Definitely do not use more than one antivirus program. Using more than one can cause problems and is unnecessary.

To find your antivirus program there are several ways you can do this but you would need to know the name of the program you are looking for.

1) Click My Computer\C Local disk\Program Files
or
2) Click start\programs then look at all the installed software.

It is unlikely that you have two antivirus programs installed. If you do, I would strongly advise that you uninstall one.

It is important to keep your antivirus software and virus definitions up to date.

Respected programs are
Norton Antivirus
McAfee

Or free AVG Antivirus

How to remove the virus


1. As soon as you suspect that your computer has a virus, remove your computer from any networks it might be on, as well as from the Internet, so that you don't inadvertently spread the bug to others. Unplug your network cable if you have to.
2. If you have antivirus software installed, run it.
3. If you don't have anti-virus software, you'll need to obtain some. If you can't get it from a network administrator or download it from an uninfected computer, you can mail-order it from a retailer.
4. Start your computer (still not connected to a network) and follow the instructions that came with the anti-virus software.
5. Keep running the virus-scanning software until your computer comes up clean.
6. Reconnect your computer to the Internet and check with the anti-virus software's publisher to make sure you have the latest updates. If not, download them now.
7. After updating the anti-virus software, run it again until your computer comes up clean.

My gx270 PC runs very slow after installing anti virus. what might be the problem?hat might be the reason?


Some anti virus software can use up a lot of system resources and noticeably slow down a computer. The newer and faster computers don't suffer from this problem as much, but on an older computer like your's it can be a problem. I've used Avira (free) on older computers without a problem:
http://www.avira.com/en/support-download-free-antivirus

I don't usually recommend Microsoft products, but Microsoft Security Essentials is not only a very good product and free, but it runs well on older, slower computers:
http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/?WT.srch=1

AVG is a good free anti virus also, but it sometimes can slow down a computer a bit. I'm running it on some Netbooks with an Atom 1.6GHz. processor and it does OK. Only way to find out is to try it:
http://free.avg.com/us-en/homepage

Remember that you should only run _one_ anti virus software at a time, so don't forget to un-install the existing anti virus first.

If you purchased an anti virus product and you're stuck with it, this tip may help you speed up your computer:

Also, your may be able to increase your performance with a memory upgrade. If your not sure how much or what kind of memory that you have, download and run this:
http://www.gtopala.com/siw-download.html
Scroll down to the SIW Without Installer (English-Only) version. After it's running click on "memory" in the left margin.

Anti virus


Hi,

You of course can run multiple instances of anti-virus programs in your computer assuming that the anti-virus will allow competition in the resources. However. more often, this would only eat on your memory and processor so it is not advisable and there is no significant gain if using 2 or more anti virus bot several downside.

How to check what anti-virus is running, there are several ways:
1. Go Start, All Programs and check what anti virus has been installed;
2. Go to Control Panel, Add/Remove Program, the programs installed would be listed including your anti-virus;
3. Go to Start, Run, type "msconfig". next window go to Startup tab, it will show what programs are running upon Windows start up including your anti-virus.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
