Before you do anything else, if you have a firewall with your current protection and it is turned on, then you need to turn off windows firewall, since they create a conflict.

Virus/Security software is like a subscription that has to be renewed each year. Most new PCs come with a trial version (usually 90days) And then you have to buy it. You could go to
www.comodo.com and download the free security program there. You would download it> save it to your desktop> then when it is finished downloading you can click on it and install it. After you have it you need to explore it and choose from the options that it can do for you. After you have downloaded it and before you install it, you need to go to
start>control panel>install and uninstall programs, find your current virus control there and uninstall it. Make sure you save the comodo page to your favorites, so that if you have any problems you can download it again. If you need any further help with this let me know. Good luck

Using this may well be all you need or it will give you time to decide which virus software you want to buy.

Has your license expired? You must at least had a year of using the program IF you paid for it.
If so, you need to buy a new license.

But if you downloaded the free version, either buy a license or un-install the program.

Is there really a Trojan Virus that Microsoft keeps trying to sell me a protective program for $199?


No, Microsoft Windows Defender is free to protect you against any Trojan Viruses! If someone is phoning you, they are scammers. There is also stuff called 'RansomeWare', which is a program you inadvertently execute which puts a message onscreen that you have a virus and have to phone money to get rid of it. Often it is a easy as pressing CTRL, ALT, DELETE and closing it is Task Manager.

First of all, having two Security Program in your laptop is not a good idea. Most of the time it creates conflict and would result into some sort of confusing each other whom would detect that virus. Other than that, having two security software would slow down the computer performance as both programs would eat large amount of your RAM. Best thing to go here is to uninstall either AVG or Norton. I recommend AVG as it has this feature called Email Scanner which would help detecting such virus that goes through emails. For more AVG FAQ you may check. www.avg.com/faq

I got Sony Vaio 4gb pen drive, problem is write protect, I search the switch but i can't find out, So how can work my PD Waiting for reply Sugat


To remove the write protection from your pendrive, use a free program called Unlocker for windows, http://goo.gl/y8ug.
The write protection in your pen drive is due to malware(virus) and it has no relation to the motherboard. Your confused with an SD card i presume which has a physical switch to lock the card.

How to restore the original dll


Steps
  1. 1Missing Dll files that somehow disappear can cause your computer to act in strange ways, such as not shutting down properly. A means to determine this is a system disk scan which comes with Norton anti-virus. For instance Norton has a good 'Windoctor' that makes repairs automatically. It is suggested that if one removes Norton anti virus for a free virus program, they retain Norton Utilities/ WinDoctor and Speed Disk for defragging.

  2. 2Always run a virus check on anything one downloads before they open it. Remove programs that one doesn't use or need. Too many programs clog up the machine. Do periodic defragging. Anytime one downloads or removes programs, music etc. plus the normal creation of files, it fragments the computer and slows and confuses its proper function. "When system files are overwritten, such as .sys, .dll, .ocx, .ttf, .fon, and .exe files, system performance becomes unpredictable, programs behave erratically, and the operating system fails".
  3. 3If it is determined that one has one or more missing Dll file(s) that can be identified, they can be replaced. Find on say Google, a site that offers free Dll file downloads. Look for missing Dll. Download and Unzip the file to desktop. For this you need Winzip or WinRAR to extract file.

What are the viruses


A computer virus is a software program, script, or macro designed to infect, destroy, modify, or cause other problems with your computer or software programs. The user may protect him by using an anti-virus protection program. The anti-virus protection program designed to detect, protect, and clean any computer viruses. This is the most basic way to define a computer virus. There are tens of thousands of viruses out there with many more created on a daily basis. The protection program needs to updating on a constant basis. The computer needs updated with its running system, email and files in order to keep a completely safe PC. The normal use of any computer still puts the system at risk of being compromised by hackers unless you provide an anti-virus program for your protection along with a personal firewall.

hope this helps

Want to open windows XP antivirus protection. Told short cut can't be found. How do I fix this?


Hello,

There is no antivirus protection included in Windows, you would need to purchase and install an antivirus program. If your computer was purchased recently it may have come with a trial version of anti virus software, and if that is the case you would be able to find the program to open under the Programs list in the Start menu.
