    1.Turn on your Windows firewall (see links below)
    2. Create a system restore point (see links below).
    3.Reboot your computer.
    4.Download and run the McAfee Consumer Products Removal tool to remove any leftover
    traces of the program (Seee link below)
    5.Re-boot your computer when the program is finished running.
    6.After re-booting check to make sure windows firewall is still running.
    7.Go to http://www.comodo.com and download the free COMODO Internet Security Premium suite.
    8.Disconnect your computer from the internet.
    9.Install COMODO Internet Security Premium Suite (FREE), and follow all of the prompts.
    10.Reconnect your computer to the internet.
    11.Check that COMODO has turned off Windows fire wall in your security settings, if not turn it
    off, make sure COMODO is turned on.
    12.Run the updates for both the COMODO firewall and antivirus programs.
    13.Run a complete system scan.

    Note: I do not work for Comodo or affiliated with any of its holding companies, I like their products and recommend them as well as other companies.

    You can get a free trial of kaspersky. That does a great job. Just so you know you can get macafee for free still if you are an aol user.
