When posting your problem, do not run and post a ComboFix logs. ComboFix is a tool that should only be run under the supervision of someone who has been trained in its use. Using it on your own can cause problems with your computer. Any posts containing CF Logs will be ignored.
To receive help, you should instead provide a detailed description of your problem, detailed word-for-word error messages that you are receiving, screenshots of strange behaviour, and your operating system. This information is much more useful to our helpers than a ComboFix log.

The guard takes action before any damage occurs.
a-squared Anti-Malware includes a Background Guard, which recognizes and blocks all dangerous programs before they have a chance to cause any damage. The unique new Malware Intrusion Detection System (Malware-IDS) immediately warns you when a program attempts to perform a potentially dangerous operation. It does this for every program, including those that may appear harmless at first sight!

Running more than one anti-spyware applications is OK. They only run on demand so there is no conflict involved. 2 anti-virus programs on the other hand is not recommended. Which leads me to my next question and to your original problem. When you first got this computer, was Norton anti-virus installed on it? Many people believe that when you remove Norton, using Add/Remove Programs, it is uninstalled. Such is not the case. You need to download a special removal tool. If that's your case, post back and we can help you with that
How do I run a system scan? Be gentle, I get confused easily. And thanks, everyone, for the suggestions. What would happen if I kept both AVG AND Avast on my computer? Would that be a bad thing? The idea of paying for protection is a good one. But, in the meantime, could I run both? Linda

Using more than one anti-virus program is not advisable. The primary concern with using more than one anti-virus program is due to conflicts that can arise when both are running in real-time mode simultaneously. Anti-virus software components insert themselves into the operating systems core and using more than one can cause instability, crash your computer, slow performance and waste system resources. When actively running in the background while connected to the Internet, they both may try to update their definition databases at the same time. As the programs compete for resources required to download the necessary files this often can result in sluggish system performance or unresponsive behavior.
What would happen if I kept both AVG AND Avast on my computer?
