Invisible antivirus and firewall

  jrichards30 17:19 09 Jul 2007

Hi gang I need some help. I have changed my anti virus and firewall a couple of weeks ago. Well security centre says they are still installed. They are Eset NOD anti virus and PC Tools firewall. When I try to install other firewalls or anti virus it says there is already them installed. the uninstall menu on control panel does not show them as installed and when I go into the programs folder they are not there.

Please help as I can't update these so protection level is lowered.

Try reinstalling and then uninstalling them again using their own uninstall, if that doesn't work try running CCleaner (Issues)click here

They are not shown in the start up menu or on the uninstall list.

You will need to reinstall them first, as I suggested so that they appear.

Hi You could also use RegCleaner to get rid of the left overs,

It did a good job on my pc deleting old security leftovers from Norton and Fsecure.

ESET NOD32 Anti-Virus & PC Tools Firewall are quite faulty. It has happened to me. Try re-installing them and then uninstall them if you don't want them

Free AntiVirus= PC Tools AntiVirus Free
Free Firewall= PC Tools Firewall
Free AntiSpyware= PC Tools Spyware Doctor SE (Google Pack)
