Hi folks, as you can see, I am new around here and would appreciate some help.
Bit of a long winded story, but here goes.
I have been using free software as my anti virus, firewall etc and decided to try a 60 day trial of a security suite which I saw advertised in a magazine I read ( software was ESET )
I thought it would make sense to uninstall the existing AV & fire wall prior to downloading the 60 day trial which I did.
Ever since then I have had sporadic blue screens on start up and during browsing sessions.
Me being me, I did a system restore back to the last working point but the PC would not allow this to happen so I decided to remove the trial version of ESET. That went fine.
I then tried to go back to scratch and reinstall the firewall I had ( Comodo Free ) but was told that it was already installed ( althought I thought I had uninstalled it )
Now, I still get sporadic blue screens, balloons saying I am not portected with AV or Firewall but when I try to reinstall them, I am told I do so I am kind of going round in circles !!!!
it might be simple to sort, but I havent got a clue so any advice would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
