Removal of virus for free


Hello,

You can install free AVG anti-virus. It's one of the best anti-virus that I have used. Even its FREE VERSION can get rid of viruses. Be reminded though that there are some viruses that can't be removed with free anti-virus and you might need to purchase the full version or have your computer reinstalled and install a free or full version of anti-virus.

By the way, if I were you, I would install RadarSync in that computer after fixing it. It's a technician's software which can optimize your computer's performance. I have been using it together with a good anti-virus. Believe me, they work good together.

Different types of Anti-virus software


<p>There are many different types companies, who create different anti-virus software. One of the most popular companies is Symantec Corporation. Symantec has its own products like Symantec Anti-virus, Symantec internet security, Symantec also have another anti-virus products called Norton. Symantec launched various versions of its products and till now, the latest version of Symantec Corporation is Norton Internet Security 2011. It's about 25 years before Norton antivirus came on the market. The name of the first Norton anti-virus was Norton Commander, released in the year 1986, served as a standard interface for DOS. This version of Norton was invented to protect DOS from malicious programs. Norton anti-virus can be listed as an oldest anti-virus program. The initial version of Norton commander was called vdos with a slandered interface for dos, for initial virus protection.<br /> <p> <br> <p>Compared to other anti-virus software, Norton provides in-built firewall software, e-mail scanner, anti-rootkit, and anti-spyware, anti-virus. Some newer options released like Sonar protection, file insight, threat insight, insight network etc. It is fast and compatible with vista like operating systems.<br> <p> <br> <p>Other popular companies are McAfee, which provides anti-virus, anti-spyware, firewall software like features and PC utilities, like QuickClean tool, defragmenter and file shredder, which lets you permanently delete sensitive files in a manner that they can't be recovered. Protection software is Kaspersky; it also provides anti-spyware, anti-virus and firewall software. One very unique feature of Kaspersky is the virtual keyboard; this small application lets you input sensitive information like credit card number, password in online without worrying about keyloggers or hackers.<br> <p> <br> <p>Many other anti-virus software have been uses, like ESENT Webrot, NOD32, QuickHeal, AVG, AVAST anti-virus etc. you can also download free versions of anti-virus from online. Whichever anti-virus you're using make sure one thing that you have to update it regularly to protect your computer.

Top 5 Paid Anti-Virus Software


With the brand-new Windows 7 operating system released late last year, many computer users opt to install some sort of anti-virus. There are free versions available, but are not routinely kept up-to-date as a paid version. Plus paid versions offer a better support and look nicer to the eye. Here are my best anti-virus programs for 2010.

1. GData Anti-Virus 2010
www.gdata-software.com $25 (one year, single PC license)
Based off of two free anti-viruses BitDefender and Avast, German developed GData brings the two together to form the best anti-virus. GData detected 99.95% of all threats tested and offered the best detection of adware. With its relative low-cost GData is my recommendation for best anti-virus.

2. Symantec Norton Anti-Virus 2010
www.symantec.com $40 (one year, single PC license)
Coming in a close second is the more popular Norton Anti-Virus. The detection rate was 99.49%, just shy of GData. With a great user interface and design, Norton remains one of the better anti-virus programs in 2010 and may better suit non-techie users.
3. Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2010
www.kaspersky.com $60 (one year, three PC license)
In previous years, Kaspersky has always been at the top, but with this year it has slid down to third. Kaspersky has a wide range of features including a firewall and advanced virus blocking but fails to provide a slick, user-friendly interface unlike the first two anti-virus programs which can get frustrating and confusing. The malware detection also lacks which maybe a problem on some users PC's.

4. BitDefender Anti-Virus 2010
www.bitdefender.com $30 (one year, three PC license)
BitDefender is a decent anti-virus program. Although the detection rate is 99.66%, the second best in the field. What it lacks is a good user interface and fails to remove threats. Only 90% of threats detected were removed successfully. This is defiantly a bargain on price but lacks in some areas where it maybe useful.

5. Panda Anti-Virus Pro 2010
www.pandasecurity.com $50 (one year, three PC license)
Panda Anti-Virus Pro had a 99.83% detection rating, earning it the best in the field. Although it can detect threats, it did poorly in behavioral scans of the PC. Panda also does not come with its own firewall, unlike all the anti-virus programs mentioned. The user interface needs some work around the edges and design could be better. Panda will get the job done, but is a last-ditch option for paid anti-virus programs.

Before you buy, make sure to do research and know what product you want to buy. Don't let the sales people influence you to go with the costlier option, because they say its better. Trust your research and be smart.

Computer gets very slow by downloading anti virus....plz help me


The anti virus is needed for computer to protect from the viruses .
The anti virus consumes certain amount of cpu and memory usage.There are anti viruses that consume large amount of memory and CPU .
If your system have higher memory and CPU performance you can use any anti virus so that the performance is not downgraded to very much.

If you not having more memory and higher CPU in that case you can use anti virus that can consume less memory and also you can stop services in antivirals which are not necessary

How will i remove the virus manually?


i hope you got norton off your system before putting AVG free on. Virus programs try to fight off other virus programs by postiong false virus claims to erase the other program. eventually they will kill your hard drive. You need a product key for a good virus protectant. Norton or CA offer good, reliable protection for your dollar. What i would do, is back up any really important stuff you have there, format your hard drive and install Vista again if you have the disc and then re-install it to permanetly delete viruses. Also your system maybe slow because VIsta needs at least a dual core processor and 2 GB RAM to work like a XP machine

Anti virus


Hi,

You of course can run multiple instances of anti-virus programs in your computer assuming that the anti-virus will allow competition in the resources. However. more often, this would only eat on your memory and processor so it is not advisable and there is no significant gain if using 2 or more anti virus bot several downside.

How to check what anti-virus is running, there are several ways:
1. Go Start, All Programs and check what anti virus has been installed;
2. Go to Control Panel, Add/Remove Program, the programs installed would be listed including your anti-virus;
3. Go to Start, Run, type "msconfig". next window go to Startup tab, it will show what programs are running upon Windows start up including your anti-virus.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
