Hi, In Windows XP SP2 ,assuming that all the viruses have been removed and there are no other issues, go to Control Panel, Network Connections, right click on Properties of your Networking Card or Wifi, in the General tab click on Install, highlight Protocol, click on Microsoft, select TCP/IP, OK. Btw, I don't recall Windows having any folder TCPIP. In any case, hope this be of some help/idea. Post back should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

- Conclusion
In conclusion, I believe that AVG anti-virus is the best free anti-virus software and is also the best paid-for anti-virus software because their updates are frequent and I have not yet come across a virus that could not be removed by AVG. They are also devoted to finding new viruses on the internet and finding ways to remove them as well as finding out what they do to ensure the best protection for you!

ClamAV ranks in at number two for anti-virus software on my list as it can be used on a server which is great for businesses and schools which require a server.

Number three on my list is McAfee anti-virus because it also has frequent updates and they have a large team working on fixing bugs and errors as well as discovering new viruses.

Number four on my list would have to be Norton anti-virus simply due to one fact: once you install it, you will not get rid of it unless you format your computer which would remove any viruses anyway.

So there you have it. If you are looking for free anti-virus software or paid-for anti-virus software, you are better off going with AVG!

I hope you enjoyed my tip about which anti-virus software to use. Thank you for using FixYa! Have a nice day and please remember to rate this tip.

Best regards,

Hotmail has been compromised


Open that strange attachment in your Hotmail email and your computer may be infected with a virus, a nasty piece of software that may corrupt your computer data, delete files or send your personal information to a hacker. Employ a combination of proactive protection measures and post-virus removal techniques to guard your computer against any viruses hiding in your Hotmail Inbox.

Avoid opening emails from suspicious sources or with unrecognizable text in the "From" or "Subject" headings. And never open attachments that you are not expecting, even if they appear to be from a friend, without first confirming it with the sender to ensure that it is a legitimate attachment. Check the top of the Hotmail page when opening an attachment. MSN Hotmail employs a free virus scanner that scans all attachments when you try to open them. If you try to open an attachment with a Hotmail virus, the website will alert you to the danger. Press "Delete" immediately. Click "Deleted" in the left column of Hotmail after deleting a virus-ridden email. A page showing your deleted emails will appear. Push the "Empty" button at the top of the page to permanently remove all of your deleted emails to prevent accidentally moving the virus back into your Inbox. Run a virus scan on your computer system if you open a strange attachment and suspect that a virus got through the Hotmail scanner. The scanner will identify and remove the virus if it has infected your machine. Virus scanning software is available at a cost from Norton and McAfee, while free alternatives can be downloaded from Avast and AVG. Consult your user manual for scanning procedures, as these vary widely by program. Rather than paying for an antivirus
Download and install at least one of these all free depending on your operating system http://spybot-search-destroy.soft32.com/ Freeware detect and remove a multitude of adware files and modules. http://www.all-freeware.com/details/113090/bitdefender-mobile-security.html Bitdefender Mobile Security Free Download Information: All Freeware is not responsible for freeware you are downloading nor for details provided about the freeware "Bitdefender Mobile Security 1.1.593" listed here, as the developer can modify information without notifying us.

It won't install


# Download McAfee Antivirus:

Click here if you are using Windows 7, Windows Vista, or Windows XP .


# Click on Run.
# When the download is complete, the installer will begin preparing itself.
# Begin the installation by clicking "Next".

# Select the appropriate License Expiry Type (in the drop down menu in the upper left of the window). Then select the button for "I accept the terms..." and click OK.
# If you already have McAfee Antivirus installed, you may see this screen. Just # click OK and the installer wizard will import your old settings into the new version of McAfee.
# For Setup, type Next
# The Wizard will now begin installing the files. It may pause the installation process and ask you to end particular applications so that it can safely continue the installation.
After a successful installation, McAfee will ask if you want to update the virus definitions and run a scan; you should do both.

Once installation is complete, McAfee will automatically update the virus definitions. Once the updates are finished click Close.

Every time I try to download from macafee cd,I get and error and it shutdown my internet ,then I have to start in safe mode and restore, I am running windows 7


1. Uninstall any other firewalls you may have on your computer. On Windows, you can find these programs under the "Security Center" on the "Control Panel." To prevent computer shutdowns, make sure you plan to install the new McAfee Firewall right away.
2. Wait to receive an email from McAfee that you can download your firewall. After your payment has been processed, they will send you a link to log into the McAfee website.
3. Log in your account by selecting "My Account" from the McAfee website. You will need to give the email address and password that you set when you purchased the firewall.
4. Go to "Account Info." Under this heading, you will find a listing of the McAfee products, including the firewall. Choose the firewall selection and then double click the "Download" icon.
5. Restart your computer once the download is complete. McAfee Firewall will be set to launch at start up. Click on the McAfee icon on your Windows program tray. Make sure the firewall is turned to "On." This should help protect your computer from problems like shutdowns. If you still experience problems, run a virus and spyware scan to remove any malware.

1, get Real Anti Virus Protection. Norton or McAfee. 2 all is not lost. McAfee offer several solution in what they call Stinger. Norton will scan the computer before it tries to install and will remove your problem files as will McAfee. This is basically a bogus add someone clicked on that allowed it to install and until you get it gone it's going to keep popping those false adds up trying to get you back to the hack site that gave them to you to begin with. Download Stinger from McAfee for free and run it from a floppy or USB drive or Buy Norton and do the install. In fact, you could get the free trial and install that of either of these and they will clean your problem.

A New problem I face with mcafee Antivirus 8.5.0.i


I agree. Re imaging or reinstalling the windows operating system seems like the only fix at this point since it seems like the anti virus isn't picking up the virus. Back up the files on an external hard drive and just reinstall windows.
