Hello: Googles Groups

       I have two computers that I would like to start using but their
subsrciption of antivirus have expired. One computer having a version
of Norton antivirus 2008 and the other a version AVG 8.0. I would like
to uninstall both versions antivirus manually, by not going on the web
and using a free download.  Both computers run Windows XP.  I am
trying to gain an interested in computers and doing  jobs such as
this.  Is this possible?  How can I do this please?  Thank you John.

Surprise John.  This ain't just Google Groups.  This is Usenet and
you're posting to the alt.comp.anti-virus newsgroup.

Each vendor has a dedicated task specific removal tool for their
products.  Use another computer to download these tools to a USB
flash drive or such.  Then "Sneakernet" to the computers of interest.

Make sure to install good current antimalware before allowing these
systems to see the Internet.  For the sake of safety, Sneakernet their
critical system updates before Internet exposure.

Since you use Google (and many here filter Google out) give yourself a
learning experience and do a search for these removal tools.  Post a
follow-up with your progress or lack of and we can narrow your search
if need be.

Regards,

Pete

RE: Pete & Tommy

      I have done my home work and this is my results.  I managed to
find and use a removal tool for Norton Anti Virus.  The removal tool
downloaded I clicked run, the file extracted, and before I know it the
Norton 2008 was gone.  As for AVG anti virus through playng with it,
updating it, and restarting the computer I found myself protected.
But, early today I clicked on the AVG desk top Icon and, the Email
Scanner Icon within the open window read " Email Scanner Not
Active."   I tried right clicking on the Email scannning Icon choosing
open and while looking for a check box  reading " Check To Enable Scan
" but not finding that check box.  What I see in the open window is:
Scan Incoming Messages.  Scan Out Going Messages.  Display
Notification Window While Email Is Busy Scanning.  Is there some way
to turn  the Email scanner back on again with out removing the AVG
Anti Virus?  If the AVG is in need of a removal tool do you have any
suggestions on how to do so?   Thanks John.

Hello John:

Someone put this removal tool listing out in a recent thread:

<http://www.technibble.com/repair-tool-of-the-week-antivirus-removal-tools/

You might start thinking about getting away from Google posting and
sign up with one of the free NNTP servers and look into a newsreader.
Many filter out anything from Google because of spamming.

can you find this image? can you get to this screen in AVG 8?
http://helpdeskgeek.com/wp-content/pictures/2008/04/avg-8.jpg

if so, you should be able to click [rt or left] on the button that says
"E-mail Scanner", and be presented with options that allow turning it on or
off. [ you should get more than  just "email scanner not active"]

make sure "scan incoming messages" and "scan outgoing messages" are both
checked [enabled]. Then when you return to the first screen you should see
"emal scanning active" again. Notification window is optional [whatever you
like]

to get to the control panel for avg 8, try double [left] clicking the AVG
icon in the systray, or rt click it, and select show panel [ or something
like that ]

I don't have AVG 8, I switched to AVAST, so I can't directly check the
controls, but I know they are there.
