Question about Microsoft Computers & Internet

Open Question

I downloaded Avira to my computer and now I can't get it off. This alleged anti-virus program locks up my computer when it sends pop up ad after pop up ad. When I try to deactivate it my screen goes blue and warns me of damage to my computer if I proceed. Help!

Norton 360 has the entire norton protection suite built into it. On top of the firewall, phishing protection, and e-mail protection it also has norton antivirus built right into it. So yes, you have to uninstall antivirus to install 360, but 360 just installs antivirus again. If you ever decide to go back to using just antivirus you can simply redownload it off their web site.

Hi kja2 ,

2 anti-virus software can not co-exist on a computer system ; therefore you did the correct thing by uninstalling the old anti-virus first . However , there are lots of anti-viruses which do not get deleted (uninstalled) by going to Start > control panel > Add/Remove program. These anti-virus have to be removed by special "uninstallers" . I do not know which Anti-virus you have on your system , therefore I will provide you with the link of most common anti-virus uninstallers :

Symantec: http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2005033108162039
McAfee: http://ts.mcafeehelp.com/displayDoc.asp?docID=408302&categoryId=246&lastCategoryLog=1&HotT
Trend Micro: http://esupport.trendmicro.com/support/viewxml.do?ContentID=EN-1033129


once the antivirus is removed through the uninstaller , then try installaing the new anti-virus which was giving you "files corrupt" message ... it will then work fine.
Also , . I would like to suggest you a very good anti-virus which you can download free of cost from internet :

SOURCE: Can't update or even find eTrust EZ Anti Virus on my computer

I was using SBC Global while in California. I moved to Oregon and am currently using Comcast. The problem was that my anti virus was part of my SBC Global package. I was able to contact SBC Global where they informed me that they use Symantac which uses Norton anti virus. I was able to contact and download Norton uninstall tool to uninstall the anti virus. I also uninstalled the SBC Global software (AT&T Yahoo) and that enabled me to install new anti virus software.

Turn off system, remove the small 3 volt battery on the motherboard for about an hour and then re-insert and reboot.

Remove the CMOS jumper for 5 minutes and re-insert then reboot.

This should clear it up and let you get past that dreaded HP INVENT Blue screen. :-)

Tip

Learn the name of your anti-virus program


Its important to know the name of your anti-virus program, because on the web there are spyware pop ups that trick you to download their antivirus. I trust AVG, Avira, or Rising anti-virus programs. Avira is my favorite and I recommend you try that one.

My flashdrive wont open and says that it needs to be reformatted ?!?


Hello,

exactly the same thing has happened to me before, but I was able to solve the problem using Avira Anti-virus.

Here is what you have to do to get your flash drive working again;

Install Avira Anti virus on on your computer. If you don't have Avira anti-virus software, go to www.avira.com, on the Avira home page, you will see Free download. Click on the free download. Allow the software download on your computer. Go to the location where the software was download and click on the software to have it installed on your computer.

After the Avira nti-virus has been successfully or completely installed on your computer, insert the flash drive into the USB port of your computer.

The moment the flash drive is inserted, the Anti virus will pop out with a dialogue box alerting you about virus detected on the flash drive.

Select 'Delete...", and the box might pop out over and over. Just keep selecting delete until the whole virus is deleted from the flash drive and your flash drive will be okay.

You can format the flash drive thereafter or right click on the flash drive from 'My computer' and scan the drive with Avira anti virus.

This should fix the problem you are facing presently. But if it does not solve the problem, please let me know so that I can give the next step to taking.

Your sincerely.

Go to www.download.com, select PC or MAC, and pick which ever of the most popular antivirus program meets your needs. Beware though, if you already have a virus, adding a program now isn't likely to fix your problem. You really need to have something installed and running before you get a virus.

Everytime I try to login to myspace, I get a popup covering my page. How do I get rid of the popups?


Sounds like you may have some sort of Malware infection on your computer.

  1. Download a program called "MalwareBytes Anti-Malware"
  2. Install and run a scan with the program, remove any found infections
This will remove most malware/adware on your computer. As a precautionary measure I would also recommend running a virus scan. If you do not have an anti-virus software on your computer, I would recommend any of the following (they are all free and effective) :

If the problem still persists after both an anti-malware and anti-virus scan I would recommend taking it to a local computer repair shop for further examination. Persistent and random pop-up ad's are the first sign of a virus/malware infection. You don't want to wait till it's too late!

Computer overtaken by automatic download


If Azureus opened and started downloading something, chances are it was an automatic update for it, and not a virus. Azereus is a pretty reliable torrenting program. Anyway, what you can do is download combofix. Then boot it in safemode with networking and run combofix. It should clear off any viruses you may have and fix your problems. Also, you may want to consider changing Anti-Viruses, as AVG, while decent, isn't always that reliable.
