General Support / Re: What antivirus do you use?
« on: March 27, 2011, 12:17:33 am »
I'm a non tech who used to pay a tech a couple of times a month to fix my cpu. Eventually he said I needed to get a new cpu or he'd quit. which he did. So I used Spy Bot. Removed everything I didn't recognize wi zsoft & AVG, anti-malware a defrag by golly, I don't seem to need a tech. My cpu runs better than ever. Every once in a while I need to reboot a few times but my cpu runs better than ever. I hope my father's ghost (who goes around making everything around here break down) doesn't see my writing this but I thot I'd share. InventingJoy

Exactly, my question. Norton Virus keeps popping up. So I worked 2 hours on a project in word. slap slap bad didn't save. norton pops up. I pull up task manager. Its shows several times. I end task several times. Yup. You guessed it. 2 hours work. So I have 2 questions:
1. In word, I have a previous version of my project which, at the time, I did save. Usually, word has an auto save. Is there some way to get that work back?
2. did U find a way to get rid of that pesky norton? If so, I'm not a techi. Pls give me kindergarten type steps to uninstall it. Zsoft seems to uninstall everything else, but not that pesky Norton. I'd also like to tell them to quit advertising on my cpu. I don't think I ever installed or had it installed. thx everyone. InventingJoy
