Virus and Spyware on computer

By mikeinnemo
Dec 21, 2008
  1. This is the list of logs that I got. I'm hoping that everything is off now. I'm about to install Mcafee on the computer but want it clean before I do so it gets a 'fresh start'. Should I remove the free virus guard before I install Mcafee?

    Hi mikeinnemo

    I will have a look over your logs later today and see if there is anything. Overall Antivirus such as Mcafee doesn't need a fresh start as its there to remove software so putting it on an infected machine wont change anything.

    I would also uninstall virus guard as the two programs wont get on.

    I will get back to you when i can

    Hi mikeinnemo

    You log appears to be clean and free from anything of cause for concern .

    You now need to make sure you install Mcafee before continuing use and be safe

    Thank You for checking it out for me. thanks to all who contribute to the 8 step clean up. With this seemingly new and updated spyware coming out it is sometimes hard to get through them. Many thanks and happy holidays to all.
