My PC is running really slowly and I'm having all sort of problems.

I think I might have another virus, but this time the antivirus you told me about is up to date and Malware Bytes and Spy Bot are not showing anything?

When can you come and have a look.

I popped round as her symptoms seemed to indicate another virus, but this was not the case!

Like a lot of people she was rather annoyed to find that her "free" McAfee was now asking her to pay £39.99 per year. Like a lot of my customers I pointed her to AVG Free.

She then got one of her friends to install it for her and for good measure he threw in a registry cleaner (take CARE) and a demo any spyware program.

Unfortunately her friend made the classic error and forgot to uninstall McAfee first.
You MUST only have one antivirus running on a PC, otherwise they will compete / clash with each other. At best you will get a slow computer at worst they will interfere with each other and leave your PC vulnerable to all the nasties out there.

This is not just restricted to McAfee and AVG, Norton, Avast, Kaspersky, Avira, Trend, BitDefender, Panda, Eset NOD32 … have I missed any? They all have similar problems if you try and run more than one.

• Download your new antivirus while you still have your old one running
– some protection is better than none.
• Then make sure that you follow the manufacturer’s removal instructions,
before installing a the new antivirus.

People seem to think that the more “protection” they have running the better.
Unfortunately this is often not the case, too many free, demo or paid for antivirus and malware scanners, all running at the same time, will cripple your system’s performance.

See my FREE SOFTWARE pages – I find that AVG Free, CCleaner, MalwareBytes and SpyBot (with immunize) will keep most PCs running safely and quickly.
