Windows 7 comes with backward compatiblity, which means that any programmes could be installed even if written for windows xp.
follow the steps below to start.

1. Right click on the setup for your anti-virus
2. look at the tab that say "compatibilty" (or something similar)
3. select that tab
select the previous version (i recommend windows xp pack 3) and make sure to tick the box that says run in administration mode.
4. apply the changes and start the installation again.
you should be able to install now but for any reason i would also like you to right click the setup file and choose "run as administrator" even after applying the above settings. Also if you are installating from a cd, open the cd and apply the settings to the setup file.
let me know of the outcome and good luck

Since I upgraded to Windows 7 I expierience that my computer hangs regulary

This can be related to few different things. One main thing to check is how much memory does you computer have since windows 7 requires at least 1GB to run smooth. Another would be incompatible driver or hardware. when you installed the OS did you run compatibility checker and hardware checker to see does your computer support installation of windows 7. Also anti-virus software might do it since windows 7 takes a lot of memory and add anti-virus to that and you get a very slow or unresponsive computer. Try to disable your anti-virus and see what happens. Also try to load windows to safe mode by restarting and constantly pressing F8 key and choosing safe mode and let it run this way. If it does not hang then it would be software or driver issue. Try removing everything from add remove programs that was put on other than windows and stuff that loads with OS and see does this resolve it. Main thing is that you have enough memory and also that your processor can handle the Windows 7. Try this and see what happens. If you run in any problems message me.

When I open 1 file in microsoft excel 9 sheets will be open, 8 of them are virus, how will I clean it?

What you desperately need is an Anti Virus software. There are many AV software that are teeming up the market place. The software that are known to be standards in the Anti virus industry are McAfe, Norton, Symentec, Bit Defender, Kaspersy, NOD32 etc. but if you want something as good as these but free than Download it from the following link
AVG Antivirus Free Edition

After you install it Make sure you Update it. It updates itself automatically also. Make sure it does for future also.

Good Luck!

Not getting updates of symentec endpoint 11 on net

hi my name is paul
you don't really need to update your pc if its not on the internet
if you do connect to the internet then your anti-virus should automatically update its self and prompt you to install anti-virus update definitions

home this helps

Anti virus of any make seem to cause more problems than they solve. The risk of a virus on a mobile is extremely remote. Remove the Anti Virus and your problems go away.
