CAV install; incompatible application found

Sorry i know this is not a reply, but it is the only way i have figured out how to post a comment, i know nothing about computers.

I have tried to install the free anti virus software but it just tells me to check the list and uninstall incompatible applications, problem is i dont know where the list is. !ot!

Please some one read this and tell me what to do, i am running with no anti virus right now, oh and my browser is Opera.

What other AV program do you have installed? What firewall are you running?

What av programs did you have in the past? May be left overs of previously uninstalled security programs are acting up. Try using removal tools for those programs. Here is a list of removal tools for common av programs: ESET Knowledgebase .

Otherwise do a Google search with terms “removal tool” and * name of product or vendor*.

Thanks for the reply, am using comodo firewall and that other stuff you said to do 88) lol, i woulnt have a clue how. Would most properly erase everything on laptop or something terrible. Am in the bush so will just have to wait until i am in town, oh was useing avg free, before, thanks again.

In short. Think what security programs you used in the past and uninstalled. Then get the removal tools for these programs and run them. Get the AVG removal tool and then try again.

This is to make sure that there is not a conflict between left overs from these programs. Uninstallers don’t always uninstall all traces of a program.
