Need virus help quick

Moms View Message Board: General Discussion: Archive March 2007: Need virus help quick

My anti virus (Norton) ran out today. What do I do? I live in a small area so I can't go buy it somewhere. Should I download something? Where?

We LOVE AVG at our house! It's on all of our computers and Gary recommends it, too. (the grisoft antivirus)

I thought it was an illness virus, at first! LOL!

Or, you can go to the Symantec website, and pay for a renewal for your Norton Antivirus. I think it is about $30 for a year's subscription. Be careful, just renew your Antivirus software, don't get an "upgrade". You don't need to "upgrade" (that is, get a "newer" "better" version) in order to renew your anti-virus subscription, and renewing it means you can continue to use the update function of your Norton anti-virus software to continue to get new definitions (that is, that Norton will recognize and block or get rid of new viruses). Your Norton will continue to work with all the virus definitions already programmed/downloaded into it, but you will not be able to update unless you renew your subscription.

Here's the site: Norton

- use the selector windows at the bottom to select the product that you have and the version (i.e., Norton Internet Security, Version 2004), and at the next page/window you can decide whether to renew or upgrade. As I said, right now it is probably simpler to renew than upgrade - and a much faster download.

Another vote for AVG here. It's free and articles I've read (usually PC World) rate it better then Norton.

I use Zone Alarm- you can get it all on line. It's a suite so it has fire walls and spyware etc. included. I've heard great things about the grisoft as well. We chose Zone Alarm because it had everything we needed with one download and Consumer Reports recommended it. Good luck.

We also use zone alarm.

Renew online - we do it annually on all of our computers. AVG is a good free anti-virus software.

Free AVG

I had to ask DH this morning. I couldn't find it last night and didn't think to Google it.

We love AVG around this house.. and it is free...

By Paulas on Saturday, March 3, 2007 - 11:01 pm:

So, I downloaded AVG but now I have a problem with my email????

By Jewlz on Saturday, March 3, 2007 - 11:42 pm:

whats the problem ? whats it doing ?

By Paulas on Saturday, March 3, 2007 - 11:46 pm:

Well, on the right side of my screen it shows the AVG E-mail scanner but then it doesn't seem to be allowing it to connect to my server to check my email.
