Which version of Windows are you using:
* Windows 95
* Windows 98
* Windows NT
* Windows 2000

Note that as of 13-July-2010, *NONE* of the above Operating Systems are supported by Microsoft. So, some anti-virus programs will *NOT* run on those "retired" Operating Systems;
you need to install a newer version of Microsoft Windows.

From another computer with Internet access,
download the FREE anti-virus software:

http://www.Microsoft.com/security_essentials

and copy the downloaded file to a USB memory-stick.

Move the memory-stick to your computer, and connect it.
Run the downloaded program on that memory stick, to install the anti-virus software onto your computer.

I am having problem in installing any antivirus.... infact m unable to do that....:( previously despite having kespersky updated ( 3o days trail) i had virus in my system..... what can i do to keep my...


Hi there,

First uninstall your current antivirus, it's just a trial anyway.
Download the free version of Malware Bytes. http://www.malwarebytes.org/
Update it then run it. (Check for malwares)

Then download the Microsoft Security Essentials. This one is for free as well. http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/
Update it then run it. (Check for viruses)

Microsoft Security Essentials will protect your system real-time while the free version of Malware Bytes will not. So you have to run malware bytes if you suspect something got in your computer.

Don't worry because they don't conflict each other.

Lastly, make sure that your windows firewall is turned ON.
If you are using windows XP, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, click Run, type Firewall.cpl, and then click OK.
  2. On the General tab, click On (recommended).
  3. Click OK.
If you are using Windows Vista or Windows 7, follow these steps:
  1. 1. Click start, type check firewall status in the search box. A result will be shown above.
  2. 2. Click check firewall status from the results. A window will open.
  3. 3. On the left side of that window Click Turn Windows Firewall On or Off.
  4. 4. Select the option that says Turn On Windows Firewall. (There should be 2, one for Home/Private and another for Public).
You should be protected now.
Keep me posted.

Im downloading skype but it say invalid win 32 application,


Hi


The "Invalid WIN 32 application error" is coming as the Skype setup you are installing is an older version and is incompatible with your Windows 64bit system. To install skype you'll need to install the newer versiion of Skype. You can download the newer version of Skype from this link---

How do I add antivirus protection to my pc


Hi, to try a "free trial" anti-virus protection; some product offer a 30 days trial, up to 90 days of free trial service, with the option to buy, and install the (Full) software after the trial expires. This is a link to one of the site: us.mcafee.com/root/downloads.asp?id=freeTrials,
just "Highlight" the site,(right) click, "copy" paste to your search engine (Iexplorer) etc. This will take you to the trial version of the download. "I hope this helps' Ya"

My computer has viruses and corrupt files. Everytime I try to go on the internet to download antivirus protection, my computer freezes up. Please help if you can. You can also email at svnorman@emb


Try to save stuff that you need! Then do format and install Windows again or use recovery disc if you have one. If you sure you had a virus there's no better way to fix it!

Unable to delete a virus


The best software available is called Malware Bytes. It is a smaller application that kills everything you don't want and is free. It can be downloaded from http://www.malwarebytes.org .
After downloading and installing, update the definitions file if not prompted to do so right away. After a full scan, you will have to reboot. Upon rebooting, run the scan again to insure every piece of malware has been removed. Works everytime.

Does one have to have apple computer for ipod one touch


Are you going to (www.apple.com/itunes/download) to download the latest version of iTunes? Also I would suggest attempting the download with your firewall/anti-virus software disabled. As they can sometimes cause the itunes download to not complete or download with missing files. They are not viruses but sometimes the different softwares will think they are malicious. You do not have to own an apple computer to use an apple iPod. Just make sure that your Operating System on your PC is up to date an you should be good to go. If your not downloading iTunes version 8.1.1.10 then it's not the latest version. :)
