Be sure that the proggy is for Vista. Turn off all running proggys including any virus control you now have. Download the file and save to your desktop. It will be an exe. file. When it is finished you can click on it to install when you are ready. It may not install of you have another security program on the system, so you will need to uninstall the other program. before you can install the new one. When yo have the new one installed update it immedaitely and get it going then you can configure it the way you want it.

The Best Free PC Security


Free PC Security: OS Microsoft Windows 2,000, XP, 2003, Vista, 7

These are the best free security programs that I have found that actually do get rid of mal-ware, spy-ware, viruses, and worms for free. If your security program is not protecting your system very well, or it is an older paid for version that is now out of date and will not update any longer unless you purchase the new version, then you might do well to download and install these very powerful and efficient security programs.

You should only have one anti-virus/anti-spy-ware program installed and running on your PC or a conflict can occur, besides the fact that there would be an un-necessary use of the system resources. If you remove your old security program be sure to remove it from the add and remove programs in the control panel (some security programs have to be disabled before they can be removed). Also mal-ware is not the same as viruses, spy-ware, or worms. Malwarebytes will not remove any viruses, spy-ware, or worms, and AVG will not remove any mal-ware either.

AVG-Free Edition will automatically update itself and run security scans, it can be set from the AVG control panel in tools, advanced settings, schedules. You should set up the schedule so that it will update and scan at a time when the PC is not in use (usually during the middle of the night).

Also be sure that the Microsoft auto-update is not scheduled to run at the same time that you scheduled AVG to update or run a scan, if it is then change the Microsoft auto-update settings to something that will not run at the same time that AVG runs, for example (evryday 9:00 a.m., every Sunday 9:00 a.m., etc.). You can change the Microsoft auto-update settings in control panel, auto-updates.

Malwarebytes is the best free anti mal-ware program that I have found, the free edition will not auto-update or auto-scan and these functions must be manually done, but that is trivial compared to the protection that this program provides. After Malwarebytes has been installed, update it from the update tab and then check for any updates, after any updates then run a scan from the scanner tab, and then select a Full scan for the first time.

If you are using Vista right click on Malwrebytes and select Run As Administrator.

To fully protect your PC, Malwarebytes should be ran anytime that you close your web browser and are done using the internet, you should run a quick scan and if any malware is found then you should also run a full scan to be sure that the malware has been completely purged from your entire PC.

You can also protect your PC from known rogue web sites by downloading and installing SpywareBlaster, it does not scan for anything, and it does not remove anything, SpywareBlaster will prevent your internet explorer from connecting to known restricted, harmful, or rogue web sites for an added layer of protection.

Download AVG-Free Edition from here;

Download Malwarebytes from here;

Download SpywareBlaster from here;

These security programs will do a very good job at protecting your PC from internet threats. I used to have to fight these threats all the time to get rid of them, on either friends or family if not my own PC, but ever since I have installed these three programs on my system, and that of all my friends and family, it has actually become quite boring and I almost miss the battles.

How to remove Trojan JS/Exploit.CP


The first thing that you should do is to get rid of any malware on your PC. You should download and install Malwarebytes, it is a very powerful free anti-malware program that does just what it says it does, remove malware and it does it exceptionally well. You can download Malwarebytes from here;

http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html?tag=mncol

After you have installed Malwarebytes update it by selecting the update tab and then check for updates, after you have updated Malwarebytes then select the scanner tab and then run a Full scan for the first scan.

You should run a quick scan with Malwarebytes whenever you are done using the internet, update it first then run a quick scan, The free edition of Malwarebytes does not auto-update or auto-scan you have to do it manually, but that is really trivial compared to how well this program works. If any malware shows up running a quick scan, then run a full scan after the quick scan completes, that way you purge it out of your PC completely.

Also, if your security program, anti-spyware/anti-virus, program is not protecting your system very well then you should download and install AVG-Free Edition, this is another very good program that does what it is supposed to do, remove spy-ware, viruses, and worms. You can download AVG-Free from here;

http://download.cnet.com/AVG-Anti-Virus-Free-Edition/3000-2239_4-10320142.html?tag=mncol

You can set when AVG will check for updates, and when to do a system scan in tools, advanced settings, schedules. Usually you would want to set it up to run when the PC is not being used (usually in the middle of the night).

Also, you should not have more than one anti-virus/anti-spy-ware program installed on your PC or it may cause a conflict and use up resources unnecessarily, If your security is not protecting your PC remove it from your PC by going into add or remove programs in the control panel.

Also, you should know that malware and spyware/viruses are not the same, AVG does not remove malware, and Malwarebytes does not remove spy-ware, viruses, or worms.

You can also help protect your PC from connecting to known rogue web sites by downloading and installing SpywareBlaster, it does not scan for anything and it does not remove anything, it only prevents you internet browser from connecting to known rogue web sites. You can download it from here;

http://download.cnet.com/SpywareBlaster/3000-8022_4-10196637.html?tag=mncol

Make sure that you update and enable all security in SpywareBlaster. Check for updates about once a month, and be sure that you enable the new updates.

My Acer Aspire 3680 is extremely slow, breaking up, giving error messages. Started yesterday but has gotten continually worse since then.


Have you installed any new programs recently?
Definitely sounds like spy-ware or a virus, check your system out. If you don't have anti-virus software installed, go here:http://shop.trendmicro.com/trialpay/
and run the anti-virus scan. I'm guessing you've got an infectected PC. For a free anti-virus program, you can go here: http://free.avg.com/download-avg-anti-virus-free-edition If after running the anti-virus scan your machine doesn't run better, please post back for more suggestions and best of luck to you!

New Printer not working with Windows Vista


Have you gone online and downloaded the driver from the lexmark.com site?
Have you turned OFF all anti virus software, firewalls and pop up blockers? Turn off programs like Spy Bot, Adaware and spy ware blockers. Spy Bot in particular will make that software hard to load.
It sounds to me like one of your security software programs are stopping your setup. That is a very common problem.
