I have a notebook computer from HP a pavilion g7 that I purchased from QVC with Lifetime premiere pc support on it. I received a message from Micrsoft Seecurity Essenitals Alert stating that a detect


NO operating system stated, sounds W7 like.?
there is no lifetime anything, SORRY!
my guess is some kind of marketing Hype,?
what do you expect for QVC, (avoid like the plunge, me)


that warning is , Microsoft, ant- malware engine protecting you.
(and anti-virus too)
it will see vast errors, cruising THE world wide web of infections.
for SURE.

Its ok, dont panic yet
run the clean,
let them both runs, 1 at a time, never both same time.
on Windows 10 its called Defender
click the tray icon and do a full scan
scans are NEVER risky .
scan it every day.
if kids use internet scan hourly (LOL)

think of the internet as a huge garbage can. (it's 10000x worse)
think of the scans like Shower and 3 doses of Penicillin


if confused

All versions if windows are a virus magnet
XP is worst
gets better every release.
W10 is the most safe! but has other issues, (spying that is easy to turn off ,ask)
and Linux vastly better, (search linux virus in the wild)
the most safe of all is booting running from CDROM or flash stick
running say windows 10 PE live CD
where nothing gets saved! ever.
or running a Virtual OS. ( i offered things to learn )

I have a virus and stmanteec antivirus notification keeps popping up on my screen: What can I do??? Help Scan type: Auto-Protect Scan Event: Threat Found! Threat: Trojan.Zlob File: ...


If you have a virus you can not delete or if your system will not boot up correctly and you suspect a virus is the problem, a recommended solution is to start your computer in safe mode and run a virus scan. By running your computer in safe mode, non-essential processes do not start and non-core components are disabled. In other words, only the minimum necessary programs will load. Tough to remove viruses, spyware and other malware usually have no chance to run and disrupt your system and can more easily be removed.
**To run a virus scan in safe mode, you must have active anti virus software installed on your computer.
To run a virus scan in safe mode, follow these steps:
  1. If your computer is on, shut it down
  2. Power on your computer
  3. Immediately after you power on your computer, repeatedly press the [F8] key (about once per second)
  4. In the Windows Advanced Options Menu screen, use the arrows to select Safe Mode and presss [Enter]
  5. Select your current operating system and press [Enter]
  6. Select the user you would like to login under (if applicable)
  7. When your system finishes booting, click the Start button on your task bar
  8. Move your cursor over All Programs and navigate to your anti virus program
  9. Click on your antiv virus program to run it and follow the anti virus program’s normal steps to run a virus scan
  10. After the virus scan is complete, Delete all detected viruses
  11. Close out of your anti virus software
  12. Restart your computer (it should start in normal mode)

Antivirus is basically a protection against viruses....

Basically it protects your pc from worms, trojans and viruses...

A computer worm is a self-replicating computer program.It uses a network to send copies of itself to other nodes (computerterminals on the network) and it may do so without any userintervention.

A Trojan horse, also known as a trojan, is a piece of malware which appears to perform a certain action but in fact performs many different forms of codes.

A computer virus is a computer program that can copy itself and infect a computer without permission or knowledge of the user.
