No, I haven't had any blue screens since removing Avast and installing Panda Security.

Hi Novice77014


Excellent news! Good Job  :t

If you have no further problems you can uninstall the tools we have used and follow this advice :-

Remove Tools Used :

Clean up with Delfix
Download "Delfix by Xplode" and save it to your desktop.

   
  • Double Click to start the program
If you are using Vista or higher, please right-click and choose run as administrator
    Make Sure the following items are checked:
  • Remove disinfection tools
  • Create registry backup
  • Purge System Restore
   
Now click on " Run " and wait patiently until the tool have completed.

The tool will create a log when it has completed. We don't need you to post this.

Make Sure Automatic Updates Are Turn On :

Turn On  Automatic Updates

1. Click Start, click Run, type sysdm.cpl, and then press ENTER.
2. Click the Automatic Updates tab, and then click to select one of the following options. We recommend that you select the Automatic (recommended) Automatically download recommended updates for my computer and install them


Make your Internet Explorer more secure:

  • From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Options.
  • Click once on the Security tab
  • Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
  • Under Security Level for this Zone make sure that you are set to Medium -High as seen in the image below:-



  • Also verify that Enable Protected Mode is checked

  • Next press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.
Finally I would highly advice you to read this topic Best Practices for Safe Computing - Tips to protect yourself against malware infection

If you have any problems you know where we are :)

Hi seedy21,

I downloaded Delfix to delete the removal tools.  I also checked the security settings on Internet Explorer.  Thanks so much for all of your help.  It's been a pleasure working with you.  Take care!
