Kids XP is infected & Windows defender wants to fix it but it will cost us ($ I don't have) as they don't have it on Xp. Had Norton but it stopped working, can't find it. Down loaded AVG just for kicks to fix it but it won't finish loading or............Question: IF I use system restore will that fix it.

I just need a :question:

OH, tried to down load Macafee and AVG and it can not finish the down load, errors causing it to not finish. So I went back to sept 1st. on RESTORE and waiting for it to finish. Maybe it will work.

Here is one that should fix that for you. I run it with AVG. And this will load with no trouble.

I use this site and many of the downloads. Lava Soft is a good product and should fix it for you.
Oh and once on the site click the top one. Where it says : Click here if it does not. That will get you the download.
It is Ad-Aware Anniversary Edition and works well.

If the system restore worked then get a Antivirus installed asap. You may also want to run Malwarebytes.

Everything seems to be working......

I am running Super Anti-spyware and I ran malware bytes. Doing a scan now.

Nothing with the NAME anti-Virus would work until I did a system restore. Guess I'm lucky.

I would still run AVG on it.
And do recommend the Ad-Aware along with it.
