My daughter in her wisdom has managed to install at least 2 anti virus systems and lap top is not even a month old., and they now seem to be fighting one another and will not let us do anything the computer just seems to hang around doing nothing. HELP!! what can I do?
laptop will not let me uninstall antivirus, have tried that am trying to uninstall WinAntiVirus Pro 2006, using both uninstall and remove programme but the screen seems to have slowed right down and nortons keeps coming up with 'Winfixer' being 'detected' but that is is
Restart in safe mode, usually press F8 during boot. Then try to remove one of the AV programs. Using two normal anti virus programs is a high risk approach, some people get lucky and have a combination that works OK. Others as you've found end up with a PC in self destruct mode where the two programs fight it out. I'm aware of only one Anti Virus product that is specifically designed to work safely in tandem with a traditional product and that's Cyberhawk click here it's free so may be of interest once you've untangled the current situation.
