Hello there, well heres the scenario, my friend purchased a dell laptop a few months ago, and all was fine, but i think(from what she said) she's started going on dodgy sites and shes developed a virus, as she says its now very slow, and she now says certain days it wont come on. shes meant to bring it down in the next few days...and what i wanted to do is downlaod the 30 days free kaspersky internet security 7( i have the 1 year on my pc and i think its superb!!!)..i want to download this from download.com, and save it to my USB drive, and then run it in SAFE MODE from her laptop, as i was advised NOT to have her laptop connected to the internet during the scan....i was trying to download it from the sight, but when i clicked save to disk, it seemed to be saving it to my hard drive, which i dont need. Any suggestions for this.....i really wanna help my friend out, as she seems lost without her laptop,....shes been close to tears, literally or any other solutions would be highly appreciated soon, thanks
Hi there technotiger, i already have KIS 7 on my desktop as its a 1 year subsription....i'm thinking that if i try and install this from download.com, it may overide my 1 year subscription, as all i'm trying to do is safe it straight to my usb drive....as its an exe file, as i dont wanna mess up my desktop at all. pls help!!
thanks technotiger, i'll give it a go....she has MCcafee on her laptop but obviously it didnt do its job...i dont think she's tried it properly in safe mode though, so we'll give it a try in that. Technotiger, pls what internet security do u use?? also pls could any of u pls kindly go to the download.com website for me, and click on the kaspersky link, maybe 1 of u can guide me through the trick to save it to my usb drive please. Also secondly if the problem is rectifed through safe mode(hopefully)..is it then ok to load up her laptop normally again please???
