    Can't Install Antivirus, Compatibility Issues


    Hi, i am using windows 8. 4GB Ram, I3

    I am trying to install new antivirus on my laptop but whichever antivirus set up i'm running it says that it has compatible issue!

    I tried Kaspersky, AVG, Avast ( got them from Torrent) i'm installing them correctly but as soon as i run the set up it says compatible issue, check online for solution!

    Can you help ?

    Uninstall it or them.

    Go here & download ONE.

    FileHippo.com - Download Free Software

    More than one is bad.

    You are welcome.

    The avatar is Lord Ganesha.

    He removes obstacles among other things.

    Forget torrents for free stuff, the best way is to download from original developer, especially for sensitive software like AVs. Make sure you register with them, that way you get support, updates and warnings and you are sure you get latest version.

    I am all - All is one.
    Ganesha is my friend.
    I am a friend to him.

    I use ONLY AVG 2014 FREE, and I always use the correct version for the OS, whether it's 32 bit or 64 bit. That's important.

    And I have no problems installing it on any OS from XP to 8.1.

    But whichever one you install, it should always be the very latest version. I usually download them from "File Hippo".
    Compatibility? No Problemo!
