Most antivirus packages do not require any additional configuration after installation.

Depending on the package you are using, you may want to change the schedule of getting new virus definitions (some people do this daily) and when a full scan is run on your machine (Do this at least weekly, at a time when your computer is on, and you're not using it. I do my machine at home on Mondays at 12 noon.)

If you're not sure how to change the settings, tell me the name of your AV program, and I'll give you some tips.

Good Luck

Itried to download yahoo messenger notice came up that said Application failed to iniatialize properly OxcO150002

Sometimes proxy setting or a firewall or even the antivirus can stop Yahoo Messenger from downloading and installing properly. If you've turned off the firewall, you may want to have a look into your proxy settings or the antivirus.

Alternatively, you can download the application from a different website like Softpedia. Yahoo will only give you an installer which will download the application and cause one of the above problems. Here's a link to Yahoo Messenger 10.

Common Pages not loading properly all of a sudden

First, Spyware Doctor is not an antivirus. It is a specialized application targeted at adware and spyware.
I would strongly recommend getting an antivirus - if it's your home computer, you can use for example.
Coming back to the main issue, check your Spyware Doctor (or any other "security" software you may have installed) settings - perhaps you have told it to block too many things (like images, videos, active content etc.), and modern websites practically cannot work without images and active content (like Flash, Javascript etc.).

Attempting to PortForward on a Seimens SpeedStream 2614

It may be due to the Antivirus software installed in your system or may be due to Windows defender firewall. Disable the antivirus and windows defender for time being and try again. If you are successfull, then provide proper exceptions to the PFPortChecker program in your antivirus and windows firewall after you enable then to run. I hope this will help you.

Smartphones such as yours have an extremely small chance of catching a virus. My advice is that you don't need one at all, especially as it will slow down your Touch a LOT.

If you still really want one, here is one suggestion:

Otherwise Google "Windows Mobile antivirus" for other info.

Sound settings for this phone are under:
Start -> Settings -> Phone
Start -> Settings -> Sounds & Notifications

No internet connection from wireless computer

Your antivirus and/or spam killer might be blocking access. Turn them off briefly just to see if this is the problem. If so turn antivirus back on and modify settings appropriately. keever
