How do you install anti-virus software

Postby vihogee » 2011-01-04 11:08

How do you install anti-virus software if you already have a virus? I re-installed Windows XP yesterday and did not have anti-virus software. Now I have this rouge anti-virus thing (Personal Protector) which is preventing me from going into Safe Mode as well as downloading AVG. Is there a way to fool this thing into letting me download something to get rid of it?

Boot from a removable drive, either a CD / DVD or a USB KEY.

You may need to play with your boot settings in your Computer BIOS

Take a look at Bart PE and Ultimate Boot CD 4 Win You can use both to boot from CD and can both have AV installed on them
If at first you don't succeed, bomb disposal probably isn't for you! ヅ
