I have been reading where XP is susceptible to malware and virus because it is not as safe as vista or windows 7. My question is: Dis this computer come with a free upgrade from XP to the nexr os?


I'm sorry but Microsoft does not provide free upgrades for your computer.
However, the security difference between XP and Vista is not far apart. As long as you have a good anti-virus program, you will be all set.
My recommendations, purchase a paid version of anti-virus for stronger protection such as : Prevx 3.0 antivirus
If you prefer a good free anti-virus (not as good as paid versions), use Microsoft Security Essentials.

Norton failed to detect worm.win32.netsky. My computer is infected with the virus and I need help. Patti


Hello Patti,

First, you need to update the Norton with the latest virus definitions and perform a scan again. It may detect the virus and remove it.

If it does not, we need to format the hard drive of the computer and reinstall the operating system as it is the most effective way to get rid of the virus.

Wish you good luck
