Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite L305-S5907 Laptop ?

I have been getting warnings from my computer about a worm virus and a trojan virus infecting my computer. I can't afford to purchase virus protections (100+dollars), are there any free protection programs out there to help people like me who have to have their computer, but can' t afford the virus protection.


Answers :

You can get free virus protection, this link will take you to one at Cnet: http://download.cnet.com/AVG-Anti-Virus-Free-Edition/3000-2239_4-10320142.html

As for cost of purchased protection, I have seen Mcafee going for around $30 at discount stores for a basic firewall and virus protection package.
There are others out there just do a search, try to stay with known download sites. The warnings you are seeing are usually false. They are usually a attempt to get you to run a free virus scan. If you run these, some of them will install malware on your computer. The fact you are seeing these can indicate you have malware. I ran into a variation of this a year ago. Every time I booted internet explorer a warning would pop up along with a request to run a free scan from Vista2008 Virus Scan. This group has of course changed names and tactics since than but there are still people running this scam.

When I got into to that mess I was running with out protection. To fix it I hit it full guns. I backed up everything and reformatted and installed and made sure I installed virus protection. I don't recommend this unless you know you have all your installation discs and have backed up everything on your computer.
You may have a real mess depending on what kind of **** ended up on your system. I would recommend running your choice of the spybot and malware detecting software, again get them from known sites and read the reviews, they will tell you a lot. The nasty thing about some of the malware out there, is that it keeps downloading new stuff to you computer. It can be almost if not impossible to get rid of so don't expect virus scan to fix this problem by itself the first try.
This is probably the most popular one out there
