How to disable resident protection?
« on: January 12, 2005, 02:05:42 PM »
How do I permanently disable resident protection?

I already have another antivirus program with resident protection. I'm advised that it's dangerous to run 2 resident antivirus programs simultaneously. I only want to run Avast, by itself, once a week.

If you want(but i think you should install only avast to your PC ;) :D :) ,You can right click on the avast icon on the toolbar near you clock and choose On-access protection control.Then in details you choose standart shield and terminate>Yes.
It's better to go add-remove programs>avast> Change and just remove what you don't need.
The best option is to stay with avast ;) ;D :P

Why don't you just stick with one or the other? 

(Go for Avast) You won't be disappointed.  As you can see, plenty of great fast free help here at the forums.

Which file(s) or application is the one to remove (for resident protection), leaving the other files intact?

I believe you terminate the standard shield.

Why are you trying to cripple avast!? Why not just use the AV you currently have. If you don't trust the AV you're using, then switch or,
enhace it by occasionally using one of the online AV scans.

But there are multiple files. None say 'standard shield.' Which is the exact file name?

In answer to your question, I run Kaspersky 5 for resident protection. I use Avast once or twice a week as a failsafe. In that running two resident antivirus programs can cause problems, why should I not do this? Are there any independent lab results stating that Avast is better than Kaspersky?

Whilst there may not be a definitive answer to which is better, the two AVs offer different levels of protection - avast offers protection for p2p, IM, email, web shield (http) and standard shield (on-access). So I would chose the one that offers most of the functions that I need and use the other as the secondary.

An easy way to disable providers, rather than have to delete files is open the Resident Scanners window (left click the avast icon) and terminate those that you don't want active. Or use the Add Remove programs, avast! Anti-Virus, Change/Remove button and scroll down to Change, click next and follow, untick the providers you don't require. You may need to be on-line to do this.
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 22.2.6003 (build 22.2.7013.717) UI 1.0.697/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security

I do exactly what your wanting to do :)

IMO when you look at the overall package Avast! is the best AV. When Avast! get it's detection rate up with Kaspersky then I wont need "IMO" any more, it'll be "fact"

I use Avast! and only use Kaspersky as a backup scanner.
