AntiVirus Software

If we detect a virus, it's vital—crucial—that you disable and remove the virus immediately. It's also a good idea to install permanent virus protection, so you won't get a virus again. We recommend McAfee VirusScan Online or Panda Titanium as the quickest and easiest virus scanners.

Important! To avoid conflicts, please temporarily disable any active background virus checking software before scanning, or add our signature file (PAV.SIG) and CAB file (PITPAV.CAB) to your exclusion list. See why.
