My I pad won't let me upgrade or download free games. They say it's for security reasons. Somebody of my favorite apps won't let me see them until I upgrade. HELP!!K


Security ware may be attempting to prevent PUPs, potentially unwanted programs sometimes bundled with what you are attempting to download. Just which security ware may be doing this is the question. Sometimes you need to download programs from a site that does not supply the software you seek with a bundle. Publishers of apps may also change the permissions required to run an app with an upgrade. You have said the upgrade was rejected due to security. That "rejection" message probably gave you some clue as to just what part of your protection was rejecting the update. Perhaps an update of that security ware is required. Or an update of your browser. If you email the app producer with details of your operating system, browser, and software protection as well as your hardware, they might advise you. Software producers want to know what conditions stop their software from running. But I really think the first thing you should do is to search for (google) the app plus troubleshooting plus your operating system as well as consult any help page connected to installing the app. You won't be alone with the problem and someone may have the answer.

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 If your security program is not protecting your system very well, or it is an older paid for version that is now out of date and will not update any longer unless you purchase the new version, then you might do well to download and install these very powerful and efficient security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;

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

Download Malwarebytes from here;

Download SpywareBlaster from here;

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

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.

Laptop running slow or unable to download from the internet


If you are experiencing slow computer response or are unable to download from the internet (especially anti-virus software), you are most likely infected with mal-ware (malicious software). This can occur by landing on nefarious websites and clicking on an area that secretly installs some code on your computer. Here's a generic correction you might want to try to regain control of your computer and send those mal-ware programs to the etherworld.

First, you'll need to go to an uninfected computer and go to www.downloads.com (This is a C-Net sponsored site and should be safe to download from). In the search on the site, type in MalwareBytes. This is an excellent free program that does a wonderful job of getting rid of most of the mal-ware out there. Download the program onto a USB drive or burn it to a CD.

Now, you'll want to boot up the infected computer into safe mode (hit F8 repeatedly when starting the computer until you are presented with a boot menu). When you get the boot menu, select Safe Mode with Networking. Once in Safe Mode, you'll want to install the malwarebytes program you just downloaded. Install and run the software (allowing it to update if it can). The software will detect and remove most of your problems (especially if it was able to update). Be sure to have the software delete all infections once it is done.

Now, reboot the computer normally and run a full scan with MalwareBytes again (if it was unable to update because malware was blocking it, update it first). Remove all infections (if any) again and reboot.

You'll probably notice a dramatic difference in the performance of your PC once you've accomplished this task. If you found the program useful, consider purchasing it (I'm not affiliated with the program in anyway, I've just found it quite useful and would like to see it continue to be supported).

There are other good programs out there as well, just be careful as there are several scams that claim to be anti-virus and anti-spyware programs that only cost you and install malware themselves.

Where can I find driver download for C143 Kodak camera


Go to this site and select your camera model. Only go to recognized sites so you don't get bloat-ware(toolbars, etc.) you don't want and may carry mal-ware to your computer. Sciencewoman

I received a message to update my browser. Is this authentic and how do I do this?


Aruba03:
Don't know if the message you received is authentic or not, but it cannot hurt to update your browser, if done properly. If you happen to be using Firefox, in the top left corner of you screen, click on "Tools" and then select "Options". Click on "Advanced" and then select the "Update" tab. Choose whatever settings you want and then click "OK". If you are using another browser, go to its home page and browse for the update option. Do whatever the browser's home page tells you. Hope this helps. DO NOT, however, click on an update option in an email you receive unless you know it to be authentic.

Whenever try to open the login page of yahoo, it says the certificate is not valid


following step can fixed your problem


Strange as it sounds, your systems' time must be synchronized to the actual time. Although your cert's may be current, the time is unsynchronized, & doesn't match the sites certificate parameters.
Right click the system tray time clock> Adjust time & Date> Internet time> Update now. (Make sure your system is set to 'Automatic Synchronize...' while you're here)

Another possible fix:
With Internet Explorer, go to Microsoft Updates, then select the 'Custom' button (not the 'Express'). That will tell you all specific updates for your computer (hardware & software) and in this case the certificate updates.

Note that some Certificates having MD-5 'hash' authentication method, may have been hacked, so it's important to have your system's time & root certificates up-to-date, otherwise a 'Cross Site Request Forgery' hack is possible.

Avenquest system suite 9


Two things to try. First, uninstall SS9 completely> restart> disable any network access> turn off automatic security settings in vista> reinstall SS9> restart> enable vista security settings> reconnect network> run update. Firewall and AV should work now. If this does not work then try the same steps above but do a selective install and uncheck firewall. When install is complete and you are connected to the network then go into control panel and, using the system suite repair function install firewall. Good luck.
