Answer by ryan5439
Just dont download any viruses – if your firewall is on the ONLY way you can get a virus is if you download it and run it yourself.

Answer by mvgrocker
try reinstalling or get another antivirus from www.download.com
and scan your system in case of any viruses.

Answer by MINDDOCTOR
You don’t stay what antivrus program you have. So try going to =start=programs and open all your programs and look for the name of your antivirus program.

Then you can right click on the program and open. It will turn your program back on. LIkewise you can also left click on your program an it will turn back on.

Ofcourse that is if you have not been hit with a trojan that has shut you antivirus system down.

If that is the case you should download www.lavasoft.com their free Ad-Aware Personal Se and scan or download www.superantispyware.com and scan, or www.ewido.net and scan.

The first two are free. Ewido is not free but will become free if you don’t purcahse in thirty days. They just remove the guard in the tray and you don’t get auto updates every hour on the hour. You have to do a manual update. And that is no problem, plus the guard in the tray you don’t need.

Good luck.

    There are viruses that will disable your AV programs. If you cannot turn it on by right clicking the Icon then go to this site and run the free online scan. Let it remove all that it finds.
