  2. Extract the files again from the UMF zip file.

Other Anti Virus Software

Recommended Steps:

  1. Open the Control Panel.
  2. Click “Programs & Features”.
  3. Select your anti-virus software from the list.
  4. Click Uninstall to get rid of your useless AV bloatware.
  5. Restart your computer.

If on Windows 7 or newer, the default Windows AV will now enable it self again.

In case of older versions of Windows or the the default not enabling it self again, you should install Microsoft Security Essentials for some protection.


Alternative Steps:

  • Learn to use the Anti-Virus software you installed.
  • Visit the website for your Anti-Virus software and look up how to add exclusions.
  • Google how to add exclusions for your Anti-Virus software.
  • Watch a video on youtube on how to add exclusions for your Anti-Virus software.
  • If all else fails, follow the Recommended Steps instead.
