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

I am experiencing slow downloads and the pc activity light constantly flashing. I suspect the two issues may be related. Any suggestions on fixes? Thanks.


There are many things that might cause your PC to run slowly or restart at time and then. It could be a fragmented disk; fragmented registry; a virus, Trojan, or spy ware; high CPU and/or utilization due to too many programs running; high disk I/O; or something else.

To check your CPU and memory utilization, run Task Manager. You can start Task Manager by pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL and then clicking on the Task Manager Button. In Task manager, click on the Performance tab and check CPU Usage and PF Usage. PF Usage is an indicator of memory usage. If one or both of these is high, click on the Processes tab, and sort the columns by CPU or Memory to see what processes are consuming the resource. If you are not sure what the process "Image name" is for, Google the name and you should find what the process is for.

If your CPU and memory usage are reasonable, then you may have a different issue. Even if you running anti-virus software, it may be beneficial to scan your PC with another scanner to check for viruses. No anti-virus software is 100% perfect at catching everything. Here are a few good free online virus scanners that you can run to check your PC:

http://www.eset.com/us/online-scanner

http://www.pandasecurity.com/homeusers/solutions/activescan/

An excellent free utility for overall system maintenance is Advanced System Care Free ( http://download.cnet.com/advanced-systemcare-free/3000-2086_4-10407614 .html ). I use this utility on a regular basis.

You should always run anti-virus software. There are several very good, free, anti-virus products available. One good source to read editor and user reviews, and safely download anti-virus software, is http://download.cnet.com -- search for free antivirus software. In addition to the reviews, you can see how many people are downloading the software, which is another good indicator of how popular it is.

I have used AVG Free ( http://download.cnet.com/avg-anti-virus-free/3000-2239_4-10320142.html ) , and Avast Free ( http://download.cnet.com/avast-free-antivirus/3000-2239_4-10019223.htm l ). Both are very good, and completely free. At present I am using Avast on all of my home computers.

I have heard good things about Avira AntiVir Free ( http://download.cnet.com/Avira-AntiVir-Personal-Free-Antivirus/3000-22 39_4-10322935.html ), and it has good ratings, but I have not personally tried it.

In addition to Avast or one of the other free anti-virus software packages, I also run Ad-Aware ( http://download.cnet.com/ad-aware-free-internet/3000-8022_4-10045910.h tml ). Ad-Aware is a free anti-malware, anti-spyware package.

Good luck!

WHENEVER I CONNECT IT THE INTERNET SECURITY DETECT VIRUS BUT UNABLE TO FIX IT.


You were not nery clear on the issue, however I think you may have a "rogue" virus. They are pretty prevelent right now. Download http://www.malwarebytes.org/ & install it. You may have to start in the safe mode with networking. 1st run the quick scan, then the full scan.

mcdevito75 here, Many things can slow up yours or any internet, Try this, from your desktop, click on RE-CYCLE bin and emty it, form your home page, right click tools (top of page) now cerefully, CAREFULLY read every word and delete cookies, and other items you really don"t need right now, check the box next to each item, READ EVERY WORD BEFORE DELETEING ANY THING. After this, from your home page, type in search, Super Anti Spy Ware, they have a free version that I run every day to get rid of potential viruses and internet ads that slow up your computer, READ EVERY WORD BEFORE YOU DO ANTHING. If your not comfortable with doing these things with your computer You may be new to doing these computer functions, then from Start, lower left side of screen, click start, the Help and support, they too can help with internet speed. READ EVERY WORD BEFORE DOING ANY THING WITH YOUR COMPUTER.

When trying to install 56k modem drivers get install fail message. Is it the disc?


If you have ANY anti-virus, spyware, scumware, adware, etc running in the background, disable these first.
Try installing the program/drivers in safe mode.
Go to the manufacturers website and download current drivers.
These are generic answers, if you still need help, please be more specific on make, model of modem, OS (operating system), ok?
