Computer Protection


A few days ago, I bought a new computer. Everything is fine but I would like to have Malwarebytes and Superantispiware on my new computer.
Is ther any way to transfer these to my new computer? I tried downloading from their site but it wouldn't work. I could have done something wrong.
Please excuse my ignorance when it comes to subjects like this

If you have the original install files saved on your old computer, you have some options:
1) If you have a router, you can hook up both computers and share the drive, transfer that way (same goes with Wi-Fi)
2) Email them to yourself
3) Pull the Hard drive from the old computer and slave it to the new one
4) Burn them to a CD/DVD
5) Transfer them to a flash drive

If you don't have the install files (check your downloads folder), then you'll need to figure out how to download them online.

Download from a reputable site like www.filehippo.com. Most items are freeware. I also like www.giveawayoftheday.com and www.freedownloadaday.com.

When you install, you must have administrator rights. That's likely your problem.

you were going about it the right way by downloading the software from their site. you said it didn't work, what happened? one thing to note is sometimes there are different installers for 32 bit vs 64 bit and the different versions of windows.

I just eMailed Superantispyware, to myself, with no problems. However, I did the same with Malwarebytes and the eMail I got instructs to download but it displayes nothing. I have a "cleverbridge ref. #"

I use Firefox for my browser (addons are Adblock, Web of Trust, and Ghostery). Commodo Internet security Premium running with the Cloud scanner enabled. This is on a Netbook that took the place of my desktop. The main key to remember, is the best security is the person using the machine, not the software protecting it.

Filehippo is far from what I would say is reputable. Majorgeeks.com is more reputable than FH. Better yet, go through their security forum at Majorgeeks.com to make sure that you understand best way to protect yourself online.
