Hands Down Best Antivirus for Windows XP/Vista/7 (It's Free!)


Antivirus products come and go at an alarming rate. At this current juncture one of the best antivirus solutions (which I might add is FREE!) is a Microsoft product. Go figure! A free antivirus product produced by the operating system creator for that operating system. Makes sense right? As a result this product has one of the fastest scanning engines out there. In my experience I have had computers protected by an enterprise version of Trend Micro or Symantec get infected by a virus. One those same computers I would install Microsoft SE and kiss the virus good bye! Anyway, this software is called Microsoft Security Essentials and is free for home use or for up to 10 computers in a small business setting. An enterprise option is also available. Microsoft SE is for Windows XP, Vista, and 7 only. Sorry 95, 98, 2000, and ME. Before you install this software please make sure you uninstall any existing antivirus products. Having more than one AV product will result in system instability. <br /> Enjoy! <br /> <a href="http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/">http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/</a>

Are you protected? do you get a message saying "scanning system for infected...


very often you may receive a pop up screen from your so called "antivirus"saying that its scanning your computer but 100% of the time that itself is a virus so always have an active antivirus and be careful for "scams" there are a lot of so called antiviruses out there that add viruses rather than removing them so if you do not have an antivirus then here is a personal favorite of mine works great hassle free and wont empty your pockets so take a look -----------> :)
also if you fear that you may already be infected by malware spyware fake antivirus and its causing your computer to run slow well this next program is another personal favorite no infection can escape from this program and it wont break the bank -------------> :D
i hope my tips help out

I recently removed a virus of this computer for a friend...was The Antivirus Pro 2010. However,now i can't access the internet,and the Administrative tools are gone....folder is empty. Any ideas on this...


Sounds like the virus is still there. u probably have Trojan or backdoor worm. if you can try to download malware bytes on another pc and burn it on a disk and then run it on the infected one.

Antivirus suddenly stopped Working


Download Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware, Ad-aware and Spybot, and run them all (one after another, not all at the same time) to see if you're not infected by some spyware.

Also run some anti-virus, like Avira - or even the online Trendmicro housecall (http://housecall.trendmicro.com/housecall/) to check for viruses.

And do that if possible disconnected from the internet.

If nothing is picked up by those programs, then you can try a system restore to a point where everything worked. Be sure to backup your data first, since you can loose some data with System Restore.

HOW TO REMOVE ,ave.exe known as "VISTA SECURITY 2010 POPUP"


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 st1\:*{behavior:url(#ieooui) } /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;}

It is fake antivirus on internet. Most of the internet users have got bad experience with this VISTA SECURITY 2010 POPUP. This particular virus cannot be detected with any normal antivirus software and at the end internet users are the victim of loosing important data by formatting the hard drive. This is a scam, should not be taken lightly. It will give popup on your screen like- your Vista PC has got serious infection - System infected with Trojan. Even it will give count of infected files, which is really very scary. This fake antivirus might have downloaded by clicking on infected FACEBOOK or MYSPACE ads or by downloading any software or movies or songs.


Press Crtl+Alt+delete and open task manger then click on process tab. Highlight ave.exe and click on end process


Try the following steps


Go to Start> Run. Type notepad and press enter...
While notepad will open, copy all the text on notepad.



Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\.exe]
[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\secfile]
[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\secfile]
[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.exe\shell\open\command]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\exefile\shell\open\command]
@="\"%1\" %*"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.exe]
@="exefile"
"Content Type"="application/x-msdownload"


Then save this notepad as fix.reg on the Desktop


*** (Remember to select All Files on save as as window while saving the notepad) ****


Double Click on fix.reg and then click YES for confirm.


Restart the computer.

Trend Micro Antivirus/Vista Antivirus 2008


Hello there.

Unfortunately you have been infected, by the software called "Vista Antivirus 2008". What this software does is infect you, then prompt you to pay to remove the infection that it installed. So it is a scam.

What i would recommend is use the uninstall instructions from here http://www.windowsvistaplace.com/xp-antivirus-2008-removal-instructions-xp-antivirus-2008/spyware-removal

This will remove the infection (and others) from your system.

Once you have completed the steps, be sure to try an online scanner such as housecall here http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
This will not conflict with your already-installed Trend Micro software, it mearly runs through your web browser.

On that note, Internet Explorer is not very safe for browsing the Internet with, i would recommend either Firefox or Opera for a safer/better browsing experience.

Hope this helps.
