Flash disinfector not running on windows 7
« on: October 03, 2010, 03:04:41 PM »
I use flash disinfector on all windows xp PCs, and it works.

When I tried using it in my windows 7 laptop, it does not work even if I use the program compatibility mode.

Is there another way to make it work on windows 7?

Is there an alternative to this program for windows 7 users?

G'day RZPogi

The Flash disinfector doesn't work on Windows Vista and 7 any more the person who created the software hasn't plan or decided to continue to Vista and 7, I've been using Panda USB Vaccine 1.0.1.4 a friend of mind used it on Windows 7 he doesn't have a problem with it.

I too use panda usb vaccine. It is good and if you carefully install, you can make it run automatically as soon as you plug in your usb to the system.

I've tried all the different programs out there, and decided on Panda USB Vaccine on all my machines with different OS's.  It works great for me and no conflicts with Avast or any other software.  :D
