Windows xp-2011 anit-virus


The best free anti virus program you can get is one called Avast Anti Virus. You can download it from download.com easily and use it to scan your computer and remove any threat. Another good application is called spybot search and destroy. This detects and removed spyware and malware. You can get this from the same place.

Tip

The truth about anti-virus software


Which anti-virus software is the best? This is a question I get asked at least weekly and the answer is it's a matter of opinion. If there was a best anti-virus program there would'nt be so many, after all there is only one Windows.
It is strictly preference some people love Norton while other hate it because it slows down their pc due to the number of processes it runs.
I personal prefer Bit-defenders online scanner because it is online not bogging down my computer and whatever it can not disinfect it deletes. Another good thing is the updates can not be shut off by a trojan since it is online.
My advice is try several with a free trial and choose whichever you like best.

I have 1gb ddr2 ram 180gb sata hard disk amd dual core proccer i having face problam hang pc startup. slow pc many time & hang use window xp3 please help me.


Goto BIOS of your computer and enable " QUICK BOOT" it will solve your problem. Plus i would personally recommend you to Format your C:\ Drive and reinstall windows (Windows XP SP2 is the best option for fast performance). After you install Windows i would also recommend you to Install any Anti-Virus and Scan your computer for viruses.

Thank you!

My PC is very slow and keeps coming up with Errors, How do I clean my computer?


1. Buy an external disk-drive.
2. Copy all your music & files & E-mail & contacts to that device.
3. Find your original manufacturer-supplied "System Restore" set of CD-ROMs.
4. Find your original CD-ROMs for purchased software (Photoshop? Adobe? Microsoft Office? Nero? Anti-Virus?)
5. Find the original "product-keys" so that you can re-install that commercial software.
6. Re-install Windows, using those "System Restore" disks.
7. Re-install your purchased software.
8. Install anti-virus software.
9. Access: http://WindowsUpdate.Microsoft.com
to get all the security-updates for Windows.
Repeat until you have no more updates to be applied.
10. Reload your data from the external device.

Desktop pc running very slowly, esp internet


First things first: You say that you only have 1 megabyte of ram. I think that you meant to say gigabyte. But if you do only have one mb, then you definitely need to get more ram. Secondly, press control+alt+delete and click the processes tab. Please say the number of processes running and the CPU Usage (they're counted and documented at the bottom left of the task manager window) in your reply. What anti-spyware checks did you run and have you checked your computer with an online scanner like kaspersky? Do you have any anti-virus (McAfee, Norton, AVG) software running? Close any unnecessary processes in the bottom right of your desktop screen on the toolbar (these icons are displayed next to your clock).

My computer is very slow. I have Compaq with windows xp.


the first thing to check is your hard drive defrag it, then the startup process, then software that you do not need or use and finally run some anti spyware/virus software.

How to rid my computer of viruses


Use any Anti-virus scanner.
To start with you can use any trialware version of prominent anti-virus companies, like
norton
mcafee
bit defender
avg

you can try download.com to find free and trial based anti-virus programs.

Updating your virus scanner definitions regularly would minimize chances of getting infected again if your virus scanner is good.

MEDION AKOYA P 7300 D problems


hi azorin,

nice gaming PC you got yourself there.

It may sound weird but I would recommend to install Win XP Pro
instead of Vista, when you have the right to do so(Original CD!)
This might rid you of some errors and slow downs.

Concerning Vista and probale virus infection:

I dunno what you have caught, but some viruses tend to infect even the Master boot record and backcopy into clean systems, so when setting up a new system, just use clean CDs, before installing any other devices than the most necessary, do get an anti-virus (like A-squared, Avira or such) software on CD and scan without accessing the web.
Then see if you still have these problems coming.

For further assistance do not hesitate to come back to fixya.

Good luck!
