I think I recently had a virus/malware situation (Zlob & Virtumundo or something similar) which I managed to get removed with a combination of AVG and several anti-malware progs. AVG didn't stop it from infiltrating my laptop, strangely, and neither did Comodo :(
Since then I've had a few probs which I've managed to resolve, but I'm now having probs updating the following:
AVG 8 Free - keeps telling me connection with server failed. If I go to AVG site and save the update, I can then update manually, which is a pain. Have uninstalled and re-installed but to no avail. AVG offer no support for the free version.
Superantispyware Free - won't update and tells me connection failed, and that Firewall might be the problem. Have uninstalled and re-installed but to no avail.
I did have Comodo Firewall, but have uninstalled it to eliminate this as a possible cause of the problem.
I'm now using Windows FW, and have allowed anything and everything for the above 2 programmes.
Anyone have any ideas why I'm having these problems, and what the solution might be?
am unsure about the anti virus and why that is not working as i am kinder new to virus battling myself! lol will hav a think tho,but regarding the restore points yes that was the virus it does it to prevent an easy fix! had the same thing on a friend comp to and i dont think u can get them back either soz i cant be of more help :(
and was just gonna say maby there still infection pressent lol! try also spybot s&d as all antivirus seem to pick up different infections none finds them all so u hav to use different if u no what i meen lol.
