I'm trying to fix a relatives Toshiba laptop. They don't have any AV, or anti-spam software. I'm trying to install a couple of good free ones, but I keep running into firewall issues. The issue is that I've turned off Windows Firewall, deleted Norton Internet Security, and searched for any other firewalls(can't find any). But every time I try to update definitions, or in the case of the AV just register it, the computer won't let anything happen. It says I need to allow the files to access the Internet (I'm connecting wirelessly, but have also tried wired). Any ideas?
For reference: Windows XP Tablet PC Edition, SP2
Trying to install and run: Avira AntiVir and Malwarebytes's Anti-Malware
