AV often picks up other AVs as viruses.

Uninstall the first before installing the second.

Also, safe mode is your friend.

Switch to Linux. Mint 12 is nice and Ubuntu is tolerable. Two of my machines have Mint, my main PC is Ubuntu, and my Ubuntu server has LightDM for GUI. If I could run Ubuntu on my Kindle Fire I would over Android.

Psy is right, uninstall Kaspersky first. I prefer Avast to AVG, both are free and both do a good job I just prefer Avast.

Malware Bytes is a great program, no need to buy it as the free version does an awesome job. The free version of Spybot Search and Destroy is another great tool to have.

We have Avast on my mother's computer, and I find it to be a pain in the butt. The biggest reason I hate it is because it blocks you from getting on the internet until it has booted up/run a scan/whatever the hell it does. So you basically turn on the computer, and sit there until Avast has finally popped up in a green box now allowing you to get on the internet. However, you have no idea how long it will take that stupid green box thing to come up.

Is there some way around this? Is this normal? (probably not...lol)

The free version of Avast has never blocked my mom's machines, my stepdad's computer, or my laptop from ever getting online for it to run a scan. I have had nothing but good luck with Avast. YMMV.

Try uninstalling Avast and reinstalling the latest free version.

If you are still having issues, download and run full scans with Malware Bytes, and Spybot Search and Destroy.
