Free antivirus software?
Slight hijack – Windows Defender is installed on my Windows 8 package, but the computer came with a free Norton trial which expires soon.
When I try and open Windows Defender, it tells me that it has been turned off by Norton and I can’t find a way round that message to get through and restart Defender to take Norton off
Any tips for this IT numpty – ideally in large font and small words….. 😳Posted 4 years ago
Madame’s work machine runs painfully slowly with a lousy combination, XP and Norton. Fortunately running malwarebytes in safe mode gets rid of the things that get through the sieve and stop it working. On her latest laptop they took W7 off and replaced it with XP, madness.
My home machine which is in theory less powerful runs W8 and AVG at the speed of light.Posted 4 years ago
Madame asked her employers to sort out her computer, i.e. put W7 or W8 on it and get rid of Norton. It came back with W7 and MSE. The change is impressive. It’ll reduce the amount of coffee I drink as she’ll no longer put the kettle on while it boots and make the coffee while it loads an application.
Edit to hijack: can anyone suggest a free e-mail programme that will handle bigger attachments than Thunderbird.Posted 4 years ago
I wasn’t aware Thunderbird had any problems with attachments, are you sure it’s not a provider issue?
I use Live Mail, or whatever it’s called this week. Part of Essentials.Posted 4 years ago
