WinPrivacySvc driver . . .
« on: July 09, 2015, 06:32:22 PM »
Greetings from the GREAT Country of TEXAS,

Had an issue with this about last January, 2015 and it seemed to have gone away, was told by the creator of this software that Avast! was detecting the driver for his software and removing it.  He contacted you and you were very responsive.  Am having the same issue now with the latest update to his software, WinPrivacyPlus v21015.6.629.  Just wondering if you are still detecting his software driver for 'Services' installation and removing same?

I'm using the same version of WinPrivacy, and am having no issues.  There is no conflict with Avast.

GJ,

Thank you for this reply, just thought there may be an issue.  NOT sure what it could be, am not having this issue with my laptop, just thought I would ask here.

Good to know though that there is not an issue with Avast!, have used it for many years and feel very safe and protected.  Everyone keeps telling me to NOT use more than one AV scanner, Malware, adware, et ceteras, yet NOT any single one can protect you very much, why not more if they work just fine together on these 64bit systems.  Have been threatened to being banned if I do not stop telling folks that you can run more than one, have run two firewalls, AV scanners, malware, adware, and scans with all of them at the same time, feel the more monitoring from different software companies will cover a wider variety of viruses, scammers, well you get the foto.

Thank you for reading my posts, gripes, et ceteras . .

Running two resident antivirus programs is a waste of resources, and will actually make one less safe as the two try to scan the same file at the same time either causing a false positive or preventing the antivirus that might have caught the infection from being able to scan the file in a timely fashion.

In the same way, two firewalls are totally unnecessary.  Stating otherwise is poor advice and may be met with warnings.

This isn't an AV program and doesn't conflict with Avast.
Running more than one resident AV is never recommended and will
sooner or later cause a conflict.
Your computer, your choice. Also your headache when the conflict rears it's ugly head. :)
