Do I have antivirus software installed? How to find out.


A technical support person has suggested turning off your antivirus software or disabling one of its features as a test.
You don't know where to start or even if have antivirus software installed.


Nearly everyone has a virus protection program of some sort on their computer.

To see if your Windows XP computer has it:

Consult the manufacturer's documentation to learn how to turn off various features or to disable the software completely. Or ask on a support group like the PowerPoint Newsgroup. With luck, other users have the same antivirus software and will be able to explain the needed steps.

Important: Before disabling your antivirus software, it's a very good idea to temporarily disconnect it from the network.
