norton found a trojan and blocked it but AVG couldnt quarantine.Uninstalled AVG and installed again but didnt work properly..so got rid again...When i sign into windows live it goes mad...screen maximises,instant messenger pops up and email section when i havent selected them....then up pops firefox with windows live sign in and set up and sign in for msn..driving me potty....should i uinstall all msn and live messenger and start again?......I have norton av,with adaware and spywareblaster...help!
Boot into windows in safe mode and do a Antivirus and Antispyware scan, which ever programs you use. Then do a system clean up using CCcleaner or the like and restart Windows normally, should sort you out!
Had Avg but didnt sort it...anyway i reinstalled and seems ok now....is norton,spywareblaster and adaware enough or do u think i should reinstall Avg again too?...also do i really need to have the live windows toolbar?.....and what brings up those litte banner ads at the bottom of the sign in?...thanks donki..will be doing a defrag and clean up later anyway.
A. If Norton had blocked it then it would not be on your PC.
"When i sign into windows live it goes mad...screen maximises,instant messenger pops up and email section"
A. This is frequently the effect of having 2 conflicting Anti Viruses on a PC.
When your free Norton Subscription runs out, it would be a good idea to consider using one of the free Anti Viruses. Norton is renowned for slowing down your PC, you will be surprised at the difference when using just the free version of AVG or whichever you chose.
However you will have to use Norton's "Free" Uninstaller before you start using the free AV.
