    Default Can't access pages after anti virus install

    I deleted Avast after the trial expired and replaced it with NOD32. Now i can't access any pages. My e-mail is working so i know there is an internet connection. I tried Internet Explorer and Mozilla.

    Did you delete avast or did you uninstall it? I would suggest going through the add/remove programs feature and making sure you have uninstalled avast.

    If you didn't uninstall avast, then I would suggest uninstalling avast and NOD32, then reinstalling the program you want to use.

    Grazaldo,

    Try a System Restore to a few days back.

    Click Start>Programs>Accessories> SystemTools> System Restore. Restore it to a few days back then see if you can connect.

    Please let me know. Then we will sort out the Anti Virus issue.

    How to uninstall Avast using aswClear.exe:

    1. Download http://files.avast.com/files/eng/aswclear.exe on to your desktop
    2. Start Windows in Safe Mode
    3. Open (execute) the uninstall utility
    4. If you installed avast! in a different folder than the default, browse for it. ( Note: Be careful! The content of any folder you choose will be deleted!)
    5. Click REMOVE
    6. Restart your computer

    Then install Nod32.

    Let me know.

    I followed the instructions and removed Avast. Everything worked fine until i reinstalled NOD 32, then i couldn't access any pages again.

    Obviously , Nod32 is not compatible with your computer.
    I would remove it for now using the link below for instruction: Completely Uninstall Nod32 Antivirus with Free Nod32 Removal Tool

    nod32 Issues: Google

    My suggestion would be to install another Anti Virus Program. My first recommendation would be the New Avast which can be found at link below as well as some additional information on the program.
    New Avast 5

    Or
    Get Microsoft Security Essentials
    From this link http://www.microsoft.com/protect/

    Let us know your decision.

    Ok,

    Did you get all of nod32 removed? We don't want any left over files from that.
