this is my first post on this forum. Please forgive me if my question has been asked and answered many time before.
I am trying to make sense sorting out a Windows XP Pro 32 bit PC which belongs to a friend. (Long time since I used windows XP)
Having recovered all functions and data etc - I am left with just one baffling item to overcome.
I just cannot install any free AV program on this PC. I can it seems download the program, and start after clicking on run - it starts and comes to a quick halt with no further notifications shown. I know that he used avast in the past, so I thought that I would clear any remaining leftovers by using avastclear.
Once again, I confirm run - it starts and then disappears!
Any thoughts, advice, help much appreciated. This is an old Athlon XP processor that lacks SSE2 instructions. Nevertheless, less Avast has run on this machine before.
cannot install AV from a usb stick or cd either. Note that one of the previous problems was the malware Bitable.com
