Panda should have its own uninstaller as well

Download and save WinsockXPFix from here, near top

http://www.geekstogo...-Log-t2852.html

If your new anti-virus and firewall are on a CD then fine, if not, download and save them

Click start then run, type msconfig, press enter then start up, look for and remove ticks from any Panda apps, click apply then reboot

Click start then search, include hidden and system files, search for Panda, send any to the recycle bin, but leave them there, reboot

Click start then run, type msconfig, press enter then put the dot in normal start up, click apply and reboot

Install the new AV and Firewall

Leave the Panda files in the recycle bin for a while

If the internet conection is not any good, run WinsockXPFix

Were you deleting them from the recycle bin, or moving them to the bin

Run disc clean up as well

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit, select all, right click any file, click dlete, confirm and reboot

Try again with the dll bits

Get the trial of Tune Up 2006 here

Tune Up 2006 Trial

Run disc clean up then registry clean up then click optimize to run reg defrag, which needs a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to run system advisor


How do the dll files affect installing the other AV and firewall now

Two ways

Re-install Panda so it loads the uninstall, guess you won't want to run with that

Get move on boot

Move on boot will allow you to select a file then it will remove it when you reboot
