  1. Ive heard from a lot of people that Norton anti virus service is terrible, it hadn't been working very well for me so i decided i should switch. I downloaded the good uninstaller for it and then right as i was about to get rid of it i realized that that was all i had. Do you guys have any recommendations for other good antivirus software i should get....hope fully cheap or free!

    Also thanks alot to howard hopkins for helping me with my HJT log.

    You can find links to the free AVG or Avast antivirus programmes and either the free Zonealarm or Kerio firewall programmes in this thread HERE.

    Once you`ve downloaded the programmes disconnect from the internet and completely uninstall Norton.

    Install whichever firewall you chose, followed by whichever antivirus programme you chose. Reboot your system the required number of times. reconnect to the net and run the antivirus updates.

    Regards Howard :)
