WILL HUGHESNET GUARD MY GATE....

...WAY laptop? My laptop has been locked for a few years since someone disabled the admin user rights and the recovery disk was long gone. I recently purchased a disk on eBay and was able to enter the world of bios and unlock it (3 hours of reading and research later). Now that I have my laptop back, I want to use it. If I log into my Hughes net account is the antivirus software that I pay for magically going to float through the wires to my laptop and protect it? Is it too old for protection? Will I have to pay more in my monthly bill? It's a Gateway and it's running Vista windows 7.

What is the antivirus you have or have purchased?  Is it something from HughesNet? 

 

"Will I have to pay more in my monthly bill?" -

 

Did you just buy an antivirus product from HughesNet?  

 

"It's a Gateway and it's running Vista windows 7."

 

Windows Vista and Windows 7 are two different operating systems.  There is no Vista Windows 7.

Hi Franciann, welcome to the community and thanks for posting. I pulled up your account and I don't see any antivirus protection from us added on. If you're referring to an antivirus that isn't associated with your services with HughesNet, we wouldn't be able to determine that.
