I am using free Kaspersky from mag disc, every time I turn on PC I get a warning message from windows that says I have no anti virus protection or it needs updating. Yet Kasperspy says all updated.
Any help thanks.

I would say that Windows as got it right, and your AV is out of date. As it ever downloaded any Dat files for AV while its been loaded?

Hello woodchip

Kaspersky does download when starting pc, checking says it is up to date, did manual update and Kaspersky says ok. Red windows warning icon now displaying. I should have stuck to avg 7.5.Trie new avg but slowed up pc. Stuck for now.

Download this and use it. I have it on four PC's

You need to register each year but its free.

After you download it remove all other AV's then install Avast
