[vip_students] Re: Virus

Frank,

Both Avast and AVG are competing antivirus programs. Many tech people have found disadvantages to using AVG, so that guy was just giving his personal opinion, prejudice, whatever. the problem you were having with Avast is a timed yes/no message, so that, if you didn't activate yes in time, the program would assume you made an error when you tried to uninstall it. As long as you run AVG and have remnants or parts of Avast installed, you may continue to have problems of one sort or another. Go with one or the other, with one means completely without the other, not both. there's a lot of support currently on this list for Avast, in preference to AVG.

(I may add that I use neither Avast nor AVG; but I use Eset Smart Security, which is both a security suite and antivirus program.)

He also mentioned AVG. (If there's such a program as super Antivirus, you can't have two antivirus programs running at the same time on one computer, as they fight each other.) However, it sounds like SUPERAntiSpyware, for malware detection. Maybe it's time to update to MSSE - Microsoft Security Essentials, which is free, one program, and does both viruses and malware.

Now, we'd like to know what happens when you launch Internet Explorer. What error message do you get?

Hi Frank,
Sounds like a cookie.Are you using superantispyware?
You mentioned Super anti virus but this isn't necessarily Superantispyware.

hi Aedan

the name of the virus is as follows
adware.mywedsearch/funwedproducts
i think the internet explorer might be a different issue
i checked it for a virus with super anti virus and it showed nothing
it seems like a setting or something like that

thanks for your help

Hi Frank,
Can you get the name of this virus?I presume that you are using
Superantispyware. If you can get me the whole path and filename of the
virus
I should be able to help you.
