What is the best free tracker stopper?
I want to stop such trackers as Google, Meebo, etc
I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.
I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.
You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)
I'm looking for a simple Windows Vista desktop software that runs in the background that just keeps a log of the time that my laptop is on and running. I just want something to track the number of hours I work each day. I don't need to keep track of the tasks. And I don't want to have to turn on and turn off the program -- I want it to be completely automatic (but not a memory hog).
I've searched download.com. But all the software there seems quite complicated (ie, it requires me to enter in tasks, etc). Perhaps I searched the wrong thing (I searched "desktop time tracker").
Does anyone know of anything like this?
Thanks for the advice.
Hi, in XP it used to tell you "system uptime" now it records only "system boot time" still you can easily work out how long you have been on. Go to start accessories and right click on command prompt select "run as administrator" at the prompt type:- systeminfo press enterhttp://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f217/looking-for-simple-time-tracker-software-334151.html
Hello Rawkfist, and welcome to Vista Forums.

AVAST 2014 | Download Free Antivirus Software for Virus Protection
I just bought my first ever smartphone (yes, I've been living under a rock) - the iphone 5s. I'm after recommendations for good software to protect it, free if possible.
I've looked in the itunes store and the options for anti-virus seem limited. The Mcafee app gets bad reviews and the others I've never heard of, and/or have no reviews. any suggestions would be great.
On the anti-malware front, i can't seem to find anything in itunes store when i try to search. I like the Malwarebytes anti-Malware program for my laptop, but unless I'm mistaken the only mobile app they have is for Androids, not iphones. Again, any recommendations would be much appreciated.
This novice appreciates your time and ideas...
The reason they have more anti-virus apps for Android is because the Android platform is more vulnerable to malware. On Android, you are able to download and install a variety of things from unknown sources.
For the iPhone, however, anti-virus isn't really needed unless you have jailbroken your device.
Hope this helped.

Malwarebytes detected the following trojan again and again, after I selected it to be removed. Every time Malwarebytes says the trojan was removed successfully, yet it is not.
I tried to delete the registry manually, yet I could not find the exact path and name where this trojan is.
I turned the Restore function off and ran Malwarebytes one more time; still did not work. Then, I downloaded and installed TrojanKiller. It detected the same thing and said that it was removed. Then, I ran Malwarebytes one last time, yet this trojan is still nicely present in my system.

I have Avira Antivir Free addition. I was wondering do I also need an anti malware protection? Which would be a good and cheap anti malware?
Well, I do not run any anti-spyware/malware protection in real time but I do scan with it often. All the products I use to do this are free and easy. My favorite ones are SuperAntiSpyware, Malwarebytes and Spybot Search and Destroy. Since getting the first two, I rarely use Spybot for scanning as it is much slower than the others and I feel the others do a better job.
However, I like Spybot because it has an immunize feature for immunizing you system against known bad threats and also has a feature called SD Helper which is bad site blocker, anyways I think that is the name of the feature that does that. Also it can help you control what programs are allowed to start on bootup. Do not use that last feature unless you are an advanced computer user and know the difference between what does and doesn't need to start up when the system does. For most items, Spybot will give its recommendation on keeping that program running if you open the side panel and click on the item. Good rule of thumb on that one is, if it is a Windows program, leave it running, if it is for a program you just installed, you can decide if you want it to run or not when the system starts up. Other than the windows programs, the only things I allow to run on start up are my keyboard (as I use its customized features) and my anitvirus/firewall program.

Hi folks I just installed win 8.1 and I'm wondering if I really really need antivirus and anti spam software. With win 7 I had eset smart security 5 and it worked well but I'm wondering if win 8.1's firewall and defender software is enough to keep me as well protected as eset's smart security 5 software.
I'm a regular guy who checks email, goes on various forums, surfs porn and downloads movies and games.
Would windows defender and firewall be enough to protect me?
Anti-Virus is always a good idea. Windows Defender is not very effective at detecting/removing malware.http://www.eightforums.com/system-security/37783-anti-virus-anti-spam-software-necessary.html

I had Norton pre-installed on my computer when I got it and I honestly dont like it. .. it seemed to cause more problems than it solved for me.
I use Avast! Antivirus and reccomend it to friends/family. It has a free eddition you can download and trial if you're unsure. You can get a free yearly subscription which is easy to renew when needed. I have never had a problem with Avast and think it might be a good starting point.

Hello all,As the title says, are anti-keylogging software (or functionality within security suites) necessary?Personally I don't think you need one, since keyloggers are part of antimalware (AM) detections (not that there are many *pure* keyloggers nowadays). Keep a solid AM protection and use a password manager with encryption (i.e. LastPass) and you're good.What do you think?Regards,Alex
Well it depends. Obviously, saying that Antimalware can take of keyloggers is kind of assuming that these programs will detect keyloggers on a system, 100% of the time. And we all know that a program with a such detection rate doesn't exist and most likely never will. Hence using an Anti-Keylogging program to protect your keystrokes when you're using your system isn't a completely bad idea. If I had the money to invest in Zemana Anti-Logger or Keyscrambler, I would, but I don't. So in a certain way, yes, using an Anti-Keylogger program can be really worth it. Also, keyloggers don't only target passwords, but pretty much everything you type on your system so these could be compromised too.http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/570968/anti-keylogging-software-are-they-necessary/
What is the BEST Anti-Virus software on the market?
I now use AVG Free, but have always used Norton SystemWorks in the past.
There are a lot out there but I need some sort of evaluation help, because they all say they are the best.
Thanks in advance.
Are you running anti-keylogger? Please mention your software & experience.
I checked out Zemana, Spyshelter & KeyScrambler free/paid.
Zemana & Spyshelter seems kinda bloated. I mean HIPS & all included.
KeyScrambler seems good & no bloats.
Recommendation & Suggestion are welcome.
The ones you listed are the only ones I know of. I don't honestly feel this ZAM-AL bloat, unless the paid version is a little heavier which I haven't used. I can't speak for SpyShelter, strangely enough, I've heard it runs quite light. KeyScrambler I've only heard good things about, and of course, it's free. I can't think of any other antiloggers that aren't apart of some security suite.
I was wondering what program or software was the best ?

My dad just got a new computer and we are trying to set him up with some anti-virus software. Norton is a resource hog so i won't even let him entertain that idea. I told him to get AVG for spyware as i have had great luck with it, but i am not sure for anti-virus. What do you guys recommend?
I'm having issues with my Norton Anti-Virus program, and the online chat support was absolutely no help (surprise!). I hear that McAfee has similar issues and wondered if anyone has a recommendation for a different software that doesn't take a rocket scientist to operate.

If you are using anything else: what and why?
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Pro. Good program, probably one of the best Antimalware there is (with Emsisoft which I use, though I use it as my Antivirus) and as a volunteer who assist on their forums, I can tell you that the people behind it are simply awesome and they can put all that "awesomeness" in their products.
My Norton is about to expire and I am thinking about changing to a different anti-virus program because I've heard that Norton really slows your system down. I need to know if anyone can recommend another good virus protection program. Here is two I've heard are good that won't slow your pc down. One is Eset Nod 32.30 and the other is Kaspersky 7.0 Which one do you recommend or do you have another one?
What are the best and most reliable anti-virus software products? Are there any good free ones? I had Norton but uninstalled it because it was causing an SYMEVNT.386 not loaded error.
I'm running ME with a dial-up......
I would like to know what some of the experts on this web site run for anti-virus and malware/spyware? Thanks
What would you recommend?
I was using 'Comodo' as it was free and had very high ratings, but it was interfering with my internet connection, so now I've gone for 'Online Armour Firewall' and I now need an anti-virus.
Any help is much appreciated,
Hi some suggestions here.
Why are u running server? Free AV's are designed for std. user platforms.
Why do you say it does not work well, with your previous problems it could be something else.
I think someone may have installed anti-keylogging (yes, I mean anti- )software on my computer and I am wondering if something like HiJackThis would detect it or be able to get rid of it. Can anyone help? Thanx!
So you want to install a program that will do keylogging but it looks like something is preventing it?
If it's not hidden and running in the background, we should be able to find it with HijackThis:
Please download HijackThis - this program will help us determine if there are any spyware/malware on your computer. Create a folder at C:\HJT and move HijackThis.exe there. Double click on the program to run it.
1. If it gives you an intro screen, just choose 'Do a system scan and save a logfile'.
2. If you don't get the intro screen, just hit Scan and then click on Save log.
3. Post the whole log here.
My anti-virus protection just expired and I need to download or buy a new one...just want some opinions on what a good and cheap one is to download. I had webroot that expired. I used to have Norton but I don't like how it makes my computer lag. any help would be appreciated!!
Hi the best toolkit that I have ever used is a combination of these FREE programs:
Malwarebytes free edition
Avg free or MSE
I need some advise on which anti virus software to install on my laptop, I was using Norton Antivirus but its so slow. I also have the password manager feature that I love since it automatically remembers my passwords. Is anyone familiar with Norton 360 and if it has a password feature. I was told Mcafee would be better but don't know if they offer a password manager feature. I would like to know what others are using and recommend. Thanks. Chuck
I download a lot of movies and music. What is the best anti virus software I should get?
Please dont post the same question in multiple sections of the forums.
Surely all you music and films come from a reputable source like iTunes or something, so you shouldn't need any special AV.

Can anyone recommend an anti-virus software. I had a computer guy look at my computer and he told me Norton Anti-virus was more pain than its worth.
HELP!!!! Thank you
I know that this has been covered over and over but I am looking for a fresh look at what is out there for free coverage. I have a win 7 machine that I used AVG for a while. I uninstalled it because I got sick of the popups asking me to run a system check for errors or upgrade to the pro version ...etc. I would log on and get about 3 or 4 popups. I just got sick of clicking no and then being asked to reboot for the new program.So What is out there that is free and works good?Thanks
Yeah... pop ups are very annoying.You can go to Google and ask for a list of the best free antivirus programs. Of course, the first thing you'll get will be paid advertisements. But go down about 3 or 4 items and you should find a list somebody is made of the best free antivirus programs at the current time.Here are some names you will likely see. AvastAviraAWGAnd many others you've already heard about anyway such as Norton.http://www.computerhope.com/forum/index.php/topic,157195.0.html
I'm setting up a new laptop and am debating which anti-virus software to put on it. I've had NAV for years, but after the fiasco I've had this past week attempting to delete it from my desktop PC in order to troubleshoot my HDs I'm beginning to wonder if I should install it or another one on the laptop.
I've heard good things about the AVG software. Is the free version as good as NAV 2003? Any issues with it, etc, etc?
Any suggestions are welcome.
Are there any Great Download sites for downloading anti virus software, and other software such as anti spyware ? Please list any and all that you can think of. Thanks In Advance.
I just rebuilt my computer and I have AVG free, adaware pro, spybot, and hjt. Now, I'm looking for something free that scans everything I download from the web and p2p programs. any suggestions?
My computer at home has been invaded, and all I get now with Internet Explorer the "This page cannot be displayed." I have done a ping with Verizon DSL and they told me i was hooked up to the Internet fine and I have a spyware/trojan problem.
I have run spybot and Mcaffee and removed everything they found but I am still not able to get on any webpage.
I am at the office now. Can anyone here tell me what is the best software for removing whatever it is that is blocking my browser? I am not far from a Staples.
The best one is downloadable and it's called HiJack This, here All you need to do once you've download it is follow these instructions:
Create a folder on your hard drive somewhere like in "My Documents" or in My Programs but NOT on the desktop or in a temporary folder. That creates problems if you do and name it Hijackthis unzip' Hijack This to that folder. The reason for this is that Hijackthis backup files may be deleted if it is being run from a temporary folder.
Doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan". When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button. Press that, save the log, load it in Notepad, and copy its contents here. Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT fix anything yet. Liz

Hello Windows world
I've just got my first Windows laptop after using Mac for 20 years and so far so good.
I'm running Windows 8 on a Samsung 350V5C laptop 6GB RAM.
My lapto[ came with a trial version of Norton and being an ex Mac user i've never had to worry about virus protection. Simple question, could you guys recommend a free Anti=Virus program/Firewall?
Also i've read a few things on general maintainence but being new to all this does anyone have a link to a laymans guide to maintenence i.e. what could/do i run on a weekly/daily/monthly basis to keep my laptop clean?
I'm a light user just surfing the net/playing music/email etc.
Many thanks and kind regards

I'm running 8.1 and my computer repair guy said I didn't need virus protection because it was built right into 8.1. Is this true?
Windows Defender is built into Windows 8.1. Getting another AV program, such as Avast as an example, is a matter of choice.http://www.eightforums.com/system-security/62455-do-i-need-anti-virus-software.html
I currently use McAfee AV and am searching for another product. I have been reading all the great info on this subject in this forum. I also reviewed the report in Consumer Reports Sep 06 issue (page25). They list a product I have never heard of: BitDefender. I went to their site www.bitdefender.com and they offer a download for 2 users (I have 2 computers) a 2 year subscrliption for 39.95. Would appreciate any thoughts regarding this.

From what you describe, it appears to be an infection that uses misleading advertising, downloads rogue security products, changes the Windows Desktop and drops additional malware infected files. The Trojan uses bogus security warnings and fake alerts to indicate that your computer is infected with spyware or has critical errors. These rogue programs purport to scan for spyware and then uses false scan reports as a scare tactic to goad you into purchasing one of several rogue programs to fix it.Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.alternate download link 1alternate download link 2Make sure you are connected to the Internet.Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:Update Malwarebytes' Anti-MalwareLaunch Malwarebytes' Anti-MalwareThen click Finish.MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself.Press the OK button to close that box and continue.If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.On the Scanner tab:Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.Then click on the Scan button.If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button. The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.Back at the main Scanner screen:Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Reagardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/160853/anti-varis-software/
I'm currently running windows xp Service Pack 3 and using Avast anti-virus software. Windows alerts me saying it can't detect any anti-virus software. I have run Spybot which "hung" the first time I used it but then ran through and found nothing wrong. Windows Defender also found nothing wrong as did Avast and Malwarebytes. Advanced System Care 3 (professional) suggested I have the Hijack This log analysed. Sometimes settings (eg the Display settings have been altered or I was informed that Malwarebytes could not be updated because the version I'm using is outdated. Next time I tried to update everything was fine. I would be very grateful if you could help.

Windowsreport.com recently published an article titled..."10 best anti-hacking software for Windows 10"...
and I was very surprised by what was Included ,and absent from this list....
For the full article,and the reasons for their selection please visit the above link,but for the purpose of this poll I will list the software that they selected..
Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection
Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit
McAfee Security Scan Plus
Spybot Search & Destroy ? free edition
Reason Core Security
The Poll asks you to select which of these software YOU think SHOULD NOT have been Included in a top 10 of Anti-Hacking software...
Which Software should be removed from this 10?
Which Software should have been Included ,that was not?
What on earth is "Anti-Hacking"?
What is "Anti-Hacker"?
McAfee Security Scan Plus, really? It's almost a PUP.
S&D was really good back then, now less.
Same for SAS.
Never used Trojan Remover.
Reason Core Security have a good online glossary, but I didn't see anything amazing about their product so far.
Edit: And Reimage Repair didn't even make their list? I don't get it, apparently, they recommend it, even though it's a known PUP.

As I said in description, what do you think the best Anti-Virus Software
all the time ?
I just think that:
Is "Avast! Antivirus Software 4.6 Home Edition" really good or bad ?
I want to find out what is different from other software.
Therefore, I need all members' opinions to find really a good Anti-Virus Software.
If I put in the wrong catagories, I am sorry (to moderator who update forum and other moderator)
This has been chewed over so many times, it's getting boring!
Do a Search and/or check recent posts in this and the Windows forum (e.g. from crazykid999).
I need to purchase a new anti-virus program and would like to have some suggestions on the best one for online protection and security. I now have zone alarm free, spybot and ad-aware se. I did have McAfee but did not renew. Any suggestions would be a big help. Thank you.
NOD32 is the daddy,Ive just renued mine at £25 for two years.
Followed closely by Kaspersky.
I really like the features of ChoiceMail. It sends email back to the sender to tell them they need to ask for permission to send stuff to an inbox if they aren't already approved, HOWEVER, it will still show the SPAM in a tab of the program. I hate that. I don't want to see any of it!
So I am wondering your opinions of programs that are supposed to block SPAM. I've seen those that you "train"...but have never tried them.
I use Mailwasher Pro. It does a good job of filtering out spam using the FirstAlert database, SpamCop and it's own learning process. You can set it up to show all incoming mail, or automatically filter out, hide or bounce any recognized spam.http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f10/the-best-anti-spam-software-80617.html
Hey guys i have McAfee and AVG because when i open McAfee, nothing shows up, its just a blank screen, so i try uninstalling it and the same thing. I also tried downloading a new version and after it downloaded it didnt show any text or anything. So i have 2 and i heard its bad ot have 2, can anyone tell me why?
And also how do i get to sticky keys? I disabled it showing up by pressing shift 5 times, there is another way to get to sticky keys right?
1 other thing is that i can remove certain programs in my Add/Remove programs window. my friend claimed it was spyware. some of the programs i cant remove are: google desktop and toobar, urge, and all of my old ISP's stuff. It says its not tkaing up space but it wont let me remove them anyway.
A few questions regarding anti-malware software and how you use Anti-malware Software them came up into my mind What anti-virus product Anti-malware Software do you use What anti-spyware product s do you use What firewall do you use How often do you scan for viral malware How often do you scan for spyware adaware Anti-malware Software and those such non-viral malware Do you use any quot speed performance boost quot products If so what are they If you could take the time to answer these questions that'd be great I'm hoping to base my furture anti-malware decisions off of these Here's my answer to my quot Anti-malware Software survey quot Sophos Anti-Virus and AVG Anti-Virus They're not running at the same time though Ad-Aware SE Spybot S amp D Spyware Doctor Ewido Anti-Malware A-Squared Anti-Malware HJT Spyware Blaster Spyware Guard BlackLight Rootkit Detector and SocketShield I recently removed Windows Defender from my computer Sygate Firewall Daily Spybot S amp D is run daily while I run Ewido or A-Squared Anti-Malware every other day Spyware Doctor amp Ad-Aware SE are used weekly and BL Rootkit detector is also used weekly I use the CCleaner and MRU-Blaster
1. Symantec AV CE
2. Spyware Doctor (registered), Spyware Guard, Spyware Blaster
3. ZA Basic Firewall
4. Scheduled daily quick scan in the middle of the night...Scheduled full system scan early Sunday morning
5. Daily scheduled scans/updates in the middle of the night
I have Ewido, Spybot, AdAware, etc...but I only run them once a month at most and only if I think my system needs it...they generally don't find anything.
Scheduled scans are glorious...they allow you to go overkill on the scanning without ever actually watching it scan! You're sleeping, and you're computer is getting cleaned..it's a beautiful thing.
You really don't have to spend any time at all during your day scanning your computer to keep it clean...if you are it's a waste! Stick to the essentials and don't go crazing with running 10 programs a day! Prevention is clutch...
I am currently running Norton and it catches NOTHING. I need to get something new ASAP so if any of you expert people here can help I would appreicate it greatly.
Also a PC cleaner?
Thanks in advance for your time.
The majority of people now run a dedicated Anti virus program as part of their everyday on line protection.
My question is I am looking to purchase a dedicated anti Trojan product, I was thinking about TDS-3.
Does any body else use this program or can they recommend something else which is better.
The three I hear most about are TDS, Trojan Hunter, and BOClean.
Myself, I would advice TDS. It is very well made, has a lot of useful features, and is constantly updated. The people at DiamondCS are very dedicated to their products, so you won't ever have to worry about not getting your money's worth.
You could also try out the trial versions. I know off hand that TDS and Trojan Hunter both have free trial versions that you can evaluate.
Everyone has their own experiences and preferences, so giving each program a try will help you choice a program that suits you, not someone else .
I recently had my motherboard and processor replaced because I was having computer problems. After that, my Norton Internet Security said I needed to activate it again. But it wouldn't let me. Is there any free anti-virus software that you all would recommend until I get it fixed?

My subscription for McAfee is ready to expire and I was wondering what the experts recommend for anti-virus software.
Free is great but I'd buy one it you folks consider it necessary.
PS: I have not been able to rid my startup list of 2 suspicious items with the software I have so far.
I would like some comments from anyone who uses AVG Anti-Virus free software. Thanks
Guys would you know by any chance which one of the best virus software that certain can detect and remove "Hard-to-remove" virus/malicus/spyware that hid in my windows program 100%. I have AOL SSC and it SUCKS! To confirm it, I done AOL SSC scan, it did not detects any viruses/spyware/malicus... I went into www.microtrend.com and it list tons tons of virus/spyware/malicus files that found in my computer.
I also have Ad-Aware and Spybot software too but I don't know if it does any good since its free. So any suggestion which anti- virus/malicus/spyware software would you recommend the best?
For AV programs, there's only one I back 100%:
Superb detection rates, low on resources, easy to just leave alone and let it get on with things, fairly straight forward to configure the advanced settings to get the best from the program.
For Anti-Spyware programs, I recommend:
Spysweeper can be good too
Hope that helps :)
I have dsl speed capabilities and no computer talent. Am trying to learn. I have free software and anti spy from my isp which is yahoo. My nortons ran out three weeks ago and i have disabled it and tried to remove it , but the icon still shows. I tried to install the yahoo and it says it will help me remove nortons at the end of the installation, It states i cannot run both. Every time it almost finishes , it shuts down or turns off. I have tried 6 times with the same result. Any help would be appreciated.
Here are instructions to completely uninstall Norton.
I only tried Bitdefender anti-theft, which I find rather unuseful, doing a very poor job. Do you think it is necessary? If so what do you recommend?

[PC] You're in for a treat if you haven't discovered Prey Anti-Theft. I've made a dedicated guest account for it too. I think there's a mobile version also.
I am looking for suggestions for free anti-spam software.

Here is a list. I like the first one listed. But, depending on your system, you may find that it takes a bit of resources, if you have a lot of spam.

I bought my computer about a year ago. Apparently the "trial" period for the anti-virus software was for one year (Norton 2000 was installed). Now I cannot download UPDATES cause my TRIAL period is over. My question is - Is there any good, free downloadable antivirus on the internet or do I have to go buy it from a store?
Are you sure. Norton usually has a one year period for virus definition updates and then you have to subscribe for another year. Cost's around 4 or 5 bucks for another years worth of updates.
If so you can get a free one here www.cai.com
I trust the suggestions and insight from this site, you guys have helped me in the past so I thought I'd ask for your advice once again. In your professional opinion what is the best anti-virus software available? I recently purchased a new computer and I need a good anti-virus software, I have read reviews and blogs and I have been considering purchasing Kaspersky 7.0. However during my research I kept running into reviews from users complaining about ISwift installing files that aren't deletable and that these files have left the system damaged after you uninstall the software. I have also considered purchasing Norton's anti-virus software but their reviews weren't all that favorable.
So I thought I'd ask here.
Could anybody recommend a safe free anti virus software download, that is compatible with windows xp and does not clash with windows security centre.
I have anti spyware software all ready installed, so i do not need this.
I am asking because i currently cannot afford to buy a system as yet.
I currently have installed AVG anti-virus and anti-spyware windows defender also but they don t seem to do anything about these pesky pop-ups i have a hijackthis log here if anyone can pick up on anything from it otherwise any useful trusted software you guys can recommend Running processes H WINDOWS System smss exe H WINDOWS system winlogon exe H WINDOWS system services exe H WINDOWS system lsass exe H WINDOWS system Ati evxx exe H WINDOWS system svchost exe H Program Files Windows Defender MsMpEng exe H WINDOWS System svchost exe H WINDOWS system spoolsv exe H Program Files Grisoft AVG Anti-Spyware guard exe H PROGRA Grisoft AVGFRE avgamsvr exe H PROGRA Grisoft Anti-pop Solved: software? up AVGFRE avgupsvc exe H PROGRA Grisoft AVGFRE avgemc exe H WINDOWS system svchost exe H Program Files BT Home Hub Wireless Configuration WirelessDaemon exe H Program Files Compact Wireless-G USB Adapter Wireless Network Monitor WLService exe H Program Files Compact Wireless-G USB Adapter Wireless Network Monitor WUSB GC exe H WINDOWS system Ati evxx exe H WINDOWS Explorer EXE H WINDOWS RTHDCPL EXE H Program Files ATI Technologies ATI ACE cli exe H Program Files CyberLink PowerDVD PDVDServ exe H PROGRA Grisoft AVGFRE avgcc exe H Program Files Common Files Real Solved: Anti-pop up software?

Our family computer is a mess. We have Norton Anti-virus (I think), but the subscription has long expired, and no one seems interested in renewing it. No one cares enough, I guess. I mean, our printer's been out of ink for months, but no one wants to invest the $40 bucks for a replacement.I digress.Norton wasn't that great, anyway. What I need is some not-crappy software that'll get rid of whatever viruses we may currently have (and from the frequent slowness, screen jumps, and a multitude of other, equally annoying problems, I gather we likely do have), and prevent other viruses from hopping aboard at their earliest convenience.Given the penny-pinching tendencies hinted at above, free software (shareware, I mean, not pirated), would probably be best.Thanks ahead of time,CVG
