Problem with my virus scanner, can someone help?

Asked By 40 points N/A Posted on -


I've got a small problem on my home computer. When I was scanning my computer for viruses, the computer sometimes stops working, like everything freezes. Then I have to restart the computer and  try to scan again. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. I"ve re-installed the virusprogram but still I got the problem. What do I do?

Thanks for informing about this problem. About hearing this problem I think your problem is in your PC hardware because if you use high level of Antivirus you need 1GB RAM and 1ghz processor . If you have this requirement then I am telling you that you must change / reinstall your windows . If you can't do , you can use another trick.You can put out your hard disk then take that and install it on another PC which is having a powerful Antivirus  like as Norton, Kaspersky (but this slows down your PC). I think best is to use Norton . Before scanning this Antivirus must be updated. After that you can install a tune up software like as tune up utilities that can make  your pc faster . This problem is caused by a virus so you can take this solution.
