If a spyware program is not blocked and manages to get itself installed, it may resist attempts to terminate or uninstall it. Spyware programs do not spread like viruses; they are generally installed by exploiting security holes or are packaged with user-installed software. Concealment can also help get the malware installed. When the user installs the software, the spyware is installed alongside. Once a malicious program is installed on a system, it is often useful to the creator if it stays concealed. Once a system has been compromised one or more backdoors may be installed, in order to allow the attacker access in the future. In the case of newly installed software, an user would need to set up default profiles for the new code.

If i understand this correctly, you have purchased Spyware Doctor, but can't install it. If this is true, click "start", find "control panel" and click to open. When control panel opens, find "Programs and Features". Right click on that and open. Find Spyware Doctor in the list that comes up and right click on that. Click on uninstall. Click, next, or allow on all windows that pop up. At the end you will see "finish". When done if it doesn't prompt you to restart, then do so. Now go back into progarms and features and make sure anything having Spyware Doctor is gone. If so exit.
When computer restarts, install your insatllation cd for your spyware. You should either see "run" or "allow", or a window will pop up and, at the bottom of the window, You should see "open file with...". Click on that. This will open another window that lists your files for the software. You should see "autorun", maybe with a icon, or, 'autorun.exe". Right click on the auorun file and it shoul start your download immediately or will ask you to allow to run. When downloading, you might have to click next or allow on certain things for download to complete. When it gets to end, click on finish and if not prompted to restart then do so. After restart, you sofware may open or you may have a new icon in your group. If it doesn't open automatically, click on the icon.

Although it is the 2009 version of Kapersky, it was upgraded to the latest version upon installation. The subscription which came with your computer is good for one year and you will be receiving renewal notices as the end of the subscription nears. Thus, if the one year license was activated in Jan 2013, it would have expired eight months ago. Unless you have activated another security or anti-virus program, your computer is unprotected and you are in danger of not only having your personal data compromised, but you are also in danger of having your computer taken over by viruses and malware.

Our Norton Anto virus expires in August 2011 and yet we get this warning message to renew our norton. Can you help to reinstated on the computer We don't have a problem with our connection. What happened...


It is the 2010 you have.You have to buy the 2011 upgrade before it expires.If it expires you
have no protection against virus.

But here is a free solution that never expires:

http://free.avg.com/us-en/download-avg-anti-virus-free

This free one is just as good as norton.
Uninstall the old antivirus first before you install the new one.

Hope this was helpfull.

Anti virus has expired and windows not working properly


Be sure to keep your anti-virus up to date with the latest updates. If you cannot renew your subscription try a free alternative such as AVG or Avast! to provide at least some protection.

I renewed my subscription (order no.1863817887) on Dec 26 but am still getting messages that my sub has run out and computer is unprotected.



If you purchased the NIS 05 and you did not pay a new subscription in 2006, then it is expired.
You would have to purchase a new subscription for 2009 for 2010. Not a renewal. I would find that out, since NIS05 is not working.

SPEAKING WITH MY EXPERIENCE TRY SOMETHING ELSE. If you find the information below helpful, pls rate me.

FREE SPYWARE
Download Spybot Search & Destroy. Restart computer, then run Spybot to see what spyware comes up, AND DELET IT.

FYI---Virus Protection-- 2 programs of virus protection will conflict with each other and will actually cancel out the protection. SO just download one.

Running Spybot Search & Destroy with EITHER Avast or Avg (great Free virus protection programs ) will keep a computer in good working condition. FREE

Under your spy ware protection it says that my subscription has expired. It was renewed on June 23,2008 and is supposed to be good untill August of 2009.It was billed to my master card onMay 26,2008....


Hi Chuck,

You pay for spyware protection whereas it is available for free of charge to download and install for whole life time....
I would advise you to uninstall your existing spyware protection and then install Avira anti virus protection..AVIRA IS A FREE ANTI-VIRUS *** SPYWARE SOFTWARE AND IT IS FREE FOR WHOLE LIFE...
download it from the following link..
