I have Windows Vista, and since downloading your free Super Safe Boost the computer detects no virus protection for about 5 minutes after booting up.
Super Safe Boost Computer Security, "Check for updates is "Greyed Out".
It seems to fix itself ok, but is there something that needs to be done for immediate virus protection rather than being advised by my Computer security is at risk message appearing at the bottom task bar, with a red warning shield?

Solved! Jump to the Best Answer.
May I ask what AV programme you used previously, and did you fully remove it prior to instaling the super secure boost?
There are some tools to remove all traces of an old AV programme available from here;
or for eset nod;
Another possibility is that you have lots of old outdated files on the system, windows uses a 'prefetch' folder for instance to cache often used programmes, periodically it is a good idea to clean out these areas for bets performance.
Have a read of this about improving performance;
Hope this helps
Thank you Fred
My last AV Programme was McAfee "Internet Security".
Prior to Uninstalling, I did a complete Disk Clean, then a Defragment of the Hard Drive 'C'.
I uninstalled the McAfee. On completion I installed Super Safe Boost. When installed, I did a Full Scan to ensure that no viruses and/or malware creapt in during the transition between AV uninstall and AV install. Everything was fine.
Other ancilliary actions was Deleting Browsing history, cookies, passwords, Active x Filtering, tempoary internet files before shutting down at the end of play.
I am lost with regards to outdated files, and "Prefetch" folder. I would love to deal with this, but as a "Silver Surfer" I would love to know how to deal with this, safely.
As you had McAfee installed previously you should run their own uninstaller programme, even though you thgink it has gone it will typicaly leave lots of traces behind which will slow your machine down.
Uninstaller available from McAfee themselves here;
As for the rest, you can use windows built in disk clean up to do some of this for you, in 'my computer' right click on the hard drive and choose 'properties', and from there, disk clean up. This will remove lots of temporary files and crud for you.
