Avast Home Edition is free for 14 months and in my opinion it is better than Kaspersky. Check out www.avast.com and download the home edition of this software. It also allows you to do a DOS base boot that will scan your whole hard drive before windows loads. This will allow you to clean your computer completely. Alll you have to do is register the program and you are set for 14 months and then you can renew after that. No cost. You can't beat that.

Pop-ups on my laptop


The anti-virus popups are a virus, If you have an anti-virus loaded on your PC then you need to either update it or call the customer support for the anti-virus and have them help you get all the adware and malware off your system. If you have a free anti-virus, then you need to remove it and load something better, like maybe windows defender or Microsoft security essentials, which are free full version antivirus programs, then load MBAM (malwarebytes.org) and run a full scan on your system. Sometimes if the popups are bad enough, it would just be better to do a new re-install of the whole system and start from scratch.

This version of Norton was invented to protect DOS from malicious programs. Norton Commander was a prototypical orthodox file manager, written by John Socha and released by Peter Norton.


Norton Commander is considered easy to use based on its constant view of two file manipulation objects at once. After starting the program the user sees two panels with file lists. Each panel can be easily configured to show information about the other panel, a directory tree, or a number of other options.


When Symantec acquired Peter Norton Computing from Peter Norton, Norton starts to develop various utilities or applications for DOS, as well as for Windows. Product activation was introduced in Norton anti-virus 2004. Spyware and adware detection and removal tool was introduced to the 2005 version. The redesign main graphical user interface and homepage hijacking protection was released with 2006 version of Norton anti-virus. With the version of 2007 windows 2000 compatibility was dropped and Vista compatibility was introduced, with anti-rootkit technology. Version 2009 and 2010 released with Sonar protection, File Insight, and rogue security software tools. The latest version of Norton anti-virus is 2011, which protect your computer being infected from facebook wall and feed.

Virus protection


I'm assuming you mean "AdAware". If so, the answer is: No, you don't have to but it's advisable. This is because the Kaspersky software performs pretty much the same function as AdAware (as well as its other functions). So if you had both of them running, you'd have two products doing the same thing which would impact the PC's performance to some extent. Having said that, if the PC is quick enough for you, having both of them won't do any harm.

So, you could
  • Turn off Kaspersky's adware-blocking function and keep AdAware installed
  • Just uninstall AdAware
  • Leave them both installed if it causes you no problems.
whichever you find works better for you.

You'll find folks who'll come down heavily in favour of one solution or the other but in reality, there's nothing much to choose between them.
