Hello,

There is no antivirus protection included in Windows, you would need to purchase and install an antivirus program. If your computer was purchased recently it may have come with a trial version of anti virus software, and if that is the case you would be able to find the program to open under the Programs list in the Start menu.

Hands Down Best Antivirus for Windows XP/Vista/7 (It's Free!)


Antivirus products come and go at an alarming rate. At this current juncture one of the best antivirus solutions (which I might add is FREE!) is a Microsoft product. Go figure! A free antivirus product produced by the operating system creator for that operating system. Makes sense right? As a result this product has one of the fastest scanning engines out there. In my experience I have had computers protected by an enterprise version of Trend Micro or Symantec get infected by a virus. One those same computers I would install Microsoft SE and kiss the virus good bye! Anyway, this software is called Microsoft Security Essentials and is free for home use or for up to 10 computers in a small business setting. An enterprise option is also available. Microsoft SE is for Windows XP, Vista, and 7 only. Sorry 95, 98, 2000, and ME. Before you install this software please make sure you uninstall any existing antivirus products. Having more than one AV product will result in system instability. <br /> Enjoy! <br /> <a href="http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/">http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/</a>

Windows 7 Keygen won't execute and causes a APPCRASH


Delete any new programs that you have downloaded.


Often, the cause of corruption in a computer system is a bad download that installs harmful files.


If you started to get the Appcrash error on your system after downloading a new program or software from the Internet, it's highly likely you have downloaded a bad product.


Use the "Add/Remove Programs" feature in the Control Panel to get rid of the program immediately.


Uninstall the program that is crashing.


It is possible to fix the program's corrupted files while the program is still installed, but to make sure that you clear the program files completely, it is safest to completely uninstall it from the system.


Run a full scan of your computer.


Your computer should already have antivirus software installed that can scan for corrupted files and either fix them or delete them from your system.


If you do not have antivirus software on your computer, that could be a big part of the problem.


Purchase and install antivirus software as soon as possible.


Once you have the antivirus program installed, open it and click "Scan Computer."


The antivirus scan will isolate bad files and you will be given the option to remove them from your system.


Reinstall the program that was crashing.


Now that the corrupted files have all been removed, your program should run smoothly after reinstallation.


Check for program incompatibility.


If, after a thorough scan and cleaning of your computer and reinstallation of your program, the


Appcrash errors continue, the program you are trying to use may not be compatible with your operating system or other programs on your computer


rather than purchasing an antivirus program use one of these freeware programs

My computer, Windows XP, freezes when I use Firefox


Your system loaded with Windows Xp Operating System might get affected by various viruses and malware. The antivirus softwares installed in your system for the removal and prevention of viruses from your system cause the freezing issue. This antivirus softwares might take too many time to load and it also make the entire system slow to boot. The antivirus programs result in the freezing of the Windows Xp during start up. Thus you need to temporary uninstall the antivirus software during the start up of your system.

You will still be protected against infection with the antivirus program's system protection. These email scans can also cause problems with opening attachments in Windows Mail to.
