Please post which Anti Virus program you are referring to (Norton, Symantec, AVG, Avast, etc....)? As the different applications use different terminologies and knowing which one will help us help you.

At any rate I would suggest making sure your AV definitions are up to date, and if not update them. Then reboot holding the F8 key and selec "Safe Mode" when the option screen appears and press "Enter" then select your Operating system on the next screen and again press "Enter". Then select yes when the Grey pop up appears. When you see a desktop (it will look different with "Safe Mode" on all edges of the screen) you should click start, then rest over "All programs" and select your anti-virus program and run a full scan in safe mode.
I suggest this as your AV protection being turned off may suggest infection and the safe mode scan can possibly repair it.

Antivirus wont turn on in settings


Is your Anti Virus Up-To-Date? Will it update? Depending on the Brand of software(you didn't post), Anti Virus, that's installed. The windows Security Center may not recognize it. Open Security Center and change Notification of Anti Virus. First make sure it hasn't been compromised, if you are infected the infected file will shut down your Anti Virus. Use this freeware program to verify a clean system , MALWAREBYTES: http://www.filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/ In the install, UNCHECK the Trial Pro version, you want the freeware version, Run a FULL scan, delete ALL results, reboot. Depending on the size of your HDD, it may take hours. Post results and your Anti Virus Software Manufacturer.

Unable to install a avast antivirus


This usually happens when there is an existing anti virus present. Make sure you remove your old anti virus completely. The best way to do this is by going into "Safe Mode" turn computer off. Turn it back on and continually press F8 you will eventually get a black screen with a bunch of options. Go to "Safe Mode" and press enter. Once the computer starts, remove old anti virus using "add Remove programs" in the control panel. Now you should be able to install the new anti virus. Hope this helps.

Why do i have to turn off my anti virus software?


Unfortunately, some anti-virus can interfere with the driver installation. However, you can enable the anti-virus back once you are done with the driver installation.
Please contact your anti-virus software manufacturer for further assistance in disabling your anti-virus.

I'm having problems trying to install kaspersky anti-virus program onto my computer which is a gateway purchased at bestbuy when I put the activation code in it keep telling me that activation code cannot...


There seems to a problem with your win defender turn off defender and try to install the anti virus software as when you have one anti virus or a firewall running it will not allow another anti virus to be installed. Also check if you have any other anti virus installed

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.
