I am getting a report on my computer that my antivirus program is not recorded or able to be found on my computer and the resolution said I needed to verify that a antivirus program is installed. How do I do this?

Do you actually have an antivirus program on your computer? You have Windows 7, in Win 7, Go to Start Menu -> Control Panel -> System and Security -> Action Center. That is where it should tell you it is not recorded and a link should be provided to find an antivirus program.

Go to program installed onto your pc and check if you have antivirus program installed. If you don't then install it latest antivirus 2012.

Hi marsha0034,

If you have an AV program installed, which program are you using? If not, then please see this topic for more information:
