Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Does telus have a free virus protection that I can scan for virus etc.


Answers :

I do not know about telus or what telus is but yes there is a free Antivirus as well as spyware scanners. Spyware is worse than a virus.

\015\012\015\012 Turn the system\015\012restore off. System restore keeps everything in restore. \015\012Meaning......... If you have spyware or a virus, it will stay in your system. \015\012Run Spybot S&D (This program is free and is better than using\015\012msconfig as long as you go through the settings and change everything to\015\012the highest settings.) Then do the same with Adaware 2008 (sounds stupid to use\015\0122 things for spyware, but one catches what the other one does\015\012not.). I have links on my website\015\012(tandnfamilyelectronics-online.com). These links go directly to the\015\012download so you will not get the run around. You would do good to try a\015\012program called Window Washer (http://www.download.com/Free-Internet-Window-Washer/3000-2144_4-10436825.html?cdlPid=10731707). \015\012This is a great program that completely cleans anything in your computer that\015\012you do not need. It will not clean out anything that you have to\015\012have. I have used this for years to clean out my customers computers and\015\012have cleaned as much as 3 gigs of trash out. If you contact me I will\015\012give you some tools that I have for free that will do a great job on your\015\012computer. I have them ready to download and I will give you the link.\015\012 ([email protected])

\015\012Send me the complete specs of your system and I can help you more. I hope\015\012that this helps you. There is no reason the really buy a program for\015\012spyware when there are free things to use that work great. Free AVG is a\015\012great Antivirus and yes it is also free. It will check your e-mail coming\015\012and going. It will also let your friends now that the E-mail does not\015\012have a virus. It also has a spyware program that is free. This day\015\012and time with all of the spyware out on the net you can never have too many\015\012programs for spyware. I would not run all of them at the same time\015\012though. Make sure that you do not use your computer during any\015\012scan. Defrag is also something to do after you do everything else. \015\012Some people will tell you that should not reload your computer. If\015\012nothing seems to work then sometimes that is the only good way to get it\015\012repaired right. Most of the programs that come pre-installed on a store\015\012bought computer is useless and most are even trail software that causes\015\012problems when they expire. Let me know if this helps at all. Please\015\012rate me if it helps.
