Hi, this is Akashdeep. I have installed Antivirus plus 2011, but I am facing problem to activate it. Everytime I click on the activate link it shows a window connecting to internet but then nothing happens. I have purchased new laptop and this is the first antivirus that I have installed. Operating system is Windows 7 ultimate and I have a broadband connection.
