HP Laptop Windows 7 and Avast Antivirus

Hi

I have a new HP laptop with Windows 7 and am running Avast 5 Antivirus Free instead of Norton

The Avast runs OK and Windows security detects it and says it is scanning OK.

The HP Advisor software on the laptop has a security shleld Icon and it reports that no Antivirus is installed.

Is the HP Advisor compatible with avast 5. ??

Has anyone else a similar problem

 

Thanks

I have see this happen.  And yes, it's due to an incompatibility between the two programs.

 

As long as the security center is showing all green lights, you're good to go.

 

Hope this helps.

HI ronalio13:

 

Thank you for your request.  I am unsure of what you require. Are you telling me you have many viruses in your computer? If that is the case  you could run an Anti Virus program to assist with removal.  If this is not the case, would you tell me what model computer you have? How Do I Find My Model Number or Product Number  click here. What operating system do you have.? Please explain exactly what is happening, or any errors you may have seen.
