Well, I could not actually say which one is better than the other. If you look at it they all actually work pretty much the same. It all comes down to how you use it.

For an antivirus to work well, you would need to make sure that you update it regularly. The power of the antivirus relies on the updates. However good the programming of the antivirus, if it is not updated, it has no chance against the latest viruses. Also, you need to make sure that you are not running a free version. Based on a lot of people's experiences, a free antivirus does not come with the full package. Plus, the updates of a free antivirus is actually delayed for a week or so. And since updates are very important, then having a free antivirus is not the way to go. Do not even believe it when people say it would be better to have two antiviruses at the same time. It would just mess up your system. Antiviruses eat up a lot of resources and sometimes detect the other as an infected program. So it would just really slow your computer and damage each other.

So all in all. All antiviruses work well. Its would depend on you on how frequent you update it.

I hope this helps.

My tablet says from a website called that my tablet might have a virus

This is a very common thing to have a website tell you that there is a virus and you need to use there software to get rid of it. In its simplest form that in itself is a virus. I would recommend installing an anti virus software that included a firewall, antivirus and malware protection. There are plenty out there like Norton, MaCafee and WebRoot that are very good at preventing this. If you are not comfortable installing it take it to a Best Buy or somewhere like that to install it for you.

<p>There are many different types companies, who create different anti-virus software. One of the most popular companies is Symantec Corporation. Symantec has its own products like Symantec Anti-virus, Symantec internet security, Symantec also have another anti-virus products called Norton. Symantec launched various versions of its products and till now, the latest version of Symantec Corporation is Norton Internet Security 2011. It's about 25 years before Norton antivirus came on the market. The name of the first Norton anti-virus was Norton Commander, released in the year 1986, served as a standard interface for DOS. This version of Norton was invented to protect DOS from malicious programs. Norton anti-virus can be listed as an oldest anti-virus program.

Protection software is Kaspersky; it also provides anti-spyware, anti-virus and firewall software. One very unique feature of Kaspersky is the virtual keyboard; this small application lets you input sensitive information like credit card number, password in online without worrying about keyloggers or hackers.<br> <p> <br> <p>Many other anti-virus software have been uses, like ESENT Webrot, NOD32, QuickHeal, AVG, AVAST anti-virus etc. you can also download free versions of anti-virus from online. Whichever anti-virus you're using make sure one thing that you have to update it regularly to protect your computer.

Locked out of youtube,, and google!

Sounds like a virus.

It will show up with either keywords or just for certain websites. The fact that the survey is not working is liekly a good thing. When you click to take the survey the problem will usually get worse.

Take the computer to someone who can remove the virus properly without loosing your data.

If you can access other sites, try to find a reputable anti-virus software that will work with your computer operating system, and remove the virus on your own if you feel comfortable doing so.

Cant delete email in Outbox of Outlook express


Stranger things have been known to happen to folks using Outlook Express, but I'm sure that's little comfort to you now. Here are some things you can try to remove the offending item from your inbox.
  • First, have you made sure that you are current with Windows Update patches and fixes? There are a bunch of nasty bugs in Outlook Express that can leave you open to attacks from specially formatted emails -- with or without attachments. Some viruses can be activated and spread to others just by viewing a message in the preview pane, but ONLY if you are using an old, unpatched version of Outlook.

  • Next, is your anti-virus protection up to date? If your service has expired, renew it ASAP. Or check with your ISP to see if they offer any free anti-virus software.

  • Try turning off the preview pane in Outlook (use View / Layout and UNcheck Show Preview Pane). Then right-click the offending message and select Delete.

  • Some users report success with pressing the Shift and Delete keys after highlighting the message. Note: This technique will delete the message without sending it to the Deleted Items folder.

  • Finally, it's possible that the undelete-able email does not contain any harmful content, but attempting to open it triggers a flaw in your anti-virus scanner. If you are certain that the email is a harmless message from a known person (and they are using anti-virus software), you could try suspending your anti-virus program, then attempt to delete the message.

  • Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.

    Anti virus


    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.
