John, most AV software will not install if it determines your computer is infected. It's kind of a Catch-22 - can't install AV, since you have a virus (or 44...) and you can't remove the virus since you don't have AV software!

Try using this free, reputable online scanner to clean the machine, then reboot, and do your install again. Keep in mind that the scan may take a long time, and that you may need to reboot and rescan until it's completely cleaned.

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.

Download and install AVG Antivirus, it will remove all your virus infected files. You will need to re-install your operating system after the scanning and remove of the virus. But update first the antivirus before scanning. It is free.

My portable scan disk`s has viruses and i cant get into my files all my folders read 2kb but when i put my scan disk into my cell phone they work. how can i fix the problem


you have viruses on your cell phone possibly as well. go to www.kaspersky.com and download either the trial or one of the products to delete the viruses. Make sure you have the portable included in the scan. Or after uploading the products and doing a scan then plugin the portable and it will scan it.

I have a trogen virus and no money can I fix it for free?


You can use free antivirus like Avira, Avg or Avast, they are as effective as full version antivirus if updated regularly and registered successfully.

You can download::
1. Avast Free

2. Avg Free

4. Avira Free


Don't install two antivirus at a time, if you are installing one of them or if there's any antivirus program installed on your computer, please uninstall and install the new one, otherwise you may have another problem with your problem.

First install Avast and run a full system scan, then check the scanned result, if you are sure that those trojans or virus etc..etc.. are removed, you are done, no need to uninstall and reinstall the other, or if you still doubt, you can try with the other two after the first one is uninstalled.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Have a virus on my toshiba laptop, can i resolve this by restoring the factory settings?


Hi Andrewfairwa.

Yes, you may remove all the security threats in the Computer by restoring it to the Factory settings.

But, restoring the Computer to the Factory settings will also delete the Data in the Hard Drive.

Hence, you may try performing a Complete System Scan to check for any Virus or security threats.

You may perform the Complete System Scan by using the Anti-virus Application installed in the Computer.

If you have not installed any Anti-virus Application installed in the Computer, you may perform a online System Scan.

Let me provide the detailed steps to perform the online System Scan.

You may perform the free Online Scan by visiting the below link:

http://www.bitdefender.com/scanner/online/free.html

Please open the above link and click on "Start Scanner".

This will start the free Online System Scan.

Once the Scan is complete, check if the Virus or any security threats are removed from the Computer.

If there are still any threats, then you may backup all the important Data and restore the Computer to the Factory settings.

Hope this helps.

Please feel free to ask further questions.

How can you help me scan my lapfop for virus and scan and restore it to the way it wuz


If you have anti-virus / protection software on your computer, like McAfee, Norton, etc.... you can simply run the (full) scan to find and remove virus, etc. If you don't, you can download the (free) Microsoft Security Essential software from : www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/?mkt=en-us
Read the info (on the webpage), and then download and install the software. Then run the "Scan" to remove the virus, spyware, etc. from your computer.

Sony vaio vgn s460 - severely virus infected. Wouldnt let any scans be run. Tried a few methods on the internet (bootable rescue,spybot, avg free scan, etc). Windows gets loaded but a downloaded program...


See if you can boot in Safe mode. If yes, then once up in safe mode uninstall all existing anti virus software's that you have installed. Then download Microsoft Security Essentials. But hope you are using a licensed OS. Download, install, update and then restart. Then do a full scan. This should solve your virus issues

Comp very slow and numerous ads pop up.


Hi,

My best advice for you is to do a "Full Clean Install" of Winxp and start again.

You may have a virus or 2 that has corrupted some of the system files.

First go here and do an online scan for viruses, it will take a bit of time but it will do a full scan and tell you whats on your system.

http://security.symantec.com/sscv6/home.asp?langid=ie&venid=sym&plfid=23&pkj=NBOMVCOBSOCUEWUXLQO&bhcp=1

Just click the link and it will take you to Symantec for the online scan and then just click start and follow the directions given, its a very very secure site so don't worry.

Good luck

Cheers
