Maybe that’s the reason why your software irregularly goes up with an error. Maintaining your system to be virus free is very important especially for all the software that are presently installed. An infected system has a great impact on the computer’s applications not to mention its performance.

Viruses usually hide or stay on the hard drive’s System Volume Information folder which is located in the root of the drive. This is a hidden system folder so make some changes in the Folder Options of the Tools menu in Windows Explorer. To make this visible, select Show hidden files and folders and then uncheck Hide protected operating system files (Recommended).

If this is where the infection started or where the virus was detected, you can instantly disable any virus by disabling your system’s System Restore. You can do this by right clicking on My Computer then selecting Properties. Select the System Restore tab then put a check on Turn off System Restore on all drives and then hit Apply. You can also customize it by selecting only the drive where you want to turn off the System Restore. Click OK to close the window.

If Microsoft Visual FoxPro has become unstable due to the infection, try doing a clean installation on the program. Uninstall it then restart your computer when asked. After booting, check your computer for any possible errors. Use a disk utility application to check the system. Install the software again then see if this fixes the problem. You may also try replacing your present antivirus for a much stronger protection.
