I would suggest removing Windows OneCare and all versions of AVG using Add/Remove programs. Then you can install Avast from You will need to choose the correct language and save the file to your desktop. After it completes, double click the file to install the program.

Once you install Avast I would suggest registering it for free at If you register it you get 1 year free. Once it advises that it is about to expire, you can return to this link and get a new license key.

Also, on the Windows Update issue, I would suggest that you rename C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution to C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution.old. This should cause Windows update to redownload windows updates.

I would like to install symantec antivirus to my pc is it possible to download it freely. Which is version is most suitable to remove threts, trojens, viruses etc.,

By freely, I assume you mean you don't want to pay for it. The answer is no, it is not free.

I would recommend AVAST which is free for personal use.

I don't get paid for advice so if this answers your problem, I would appreciate 4 thumbs.

Computer clean up

Does FREE work?

AVAST FREE, best free antivirus there is.Right click on download link open in new tab. download from the site and schedule a boot scan, reboot and watch the fun. (I told one teen she would have to pay her mom 10 cents for every virus/trojan/or worm. 848 later she screamed)
click on the free registration link, they will e-mail you a registration id.
