Installed Ewido 4 with Avast running - no problems with either programme

Do you have Evido guard running?

Have you tried stopping/starting Standard shield of Avast while Ewido gurd is running?

Just curious. :)

NO I turn the guard and autoupdate off, as I use it as a backup scanner

Edit:

Just saw the thread about Ewido 4 in general forum.

Must be something here that can't be explained!

Never mind. On-demand with Ewido is working as it should here, too.

Thanks.

RejZoR:

Perhaps the problem is on my side, has anybody else tried what I descibed in my first post?


HLector, I also have been running Ewido 3.5 as an on-demand scanner for some time.  Just uninstalled it yesterday via Add/Remove and deleted all files/folders it left behind on hdd & registry I could find.  Then installed Ewido 4.0 leaving defaults  & realtime/guard alone.  This was all done without turning off Avast or anything else.  Absolutely no problems here.  I didn't even turn off WinDefender, SpywareBlaster or SpywareGuard.  Maybe manually deleting Ewido file/registry orphans made the difference for me.  I had read on WildersSecurityForum (official Ewido forum) those 3.5 leftovers can cause problems when upgrading to 4.0.

Hi buttoni:

It looks like what I did wrong was to disable Avast during the install of Ewido 4.0.   ;D

My rationale for doing this is that it wouldn't hurt, and I thought I had read something about Ewido's guard not wanting to be 'disturbed' during installation.
Just to be on the 'safe' side I turned Avast off because I knew that the guard would be installed either I wanted it or not.
But  a boot and turning Avast back on was a real blackout for my machine.
It had been interesting to repeat the whole process with Avast on, to get  confirmed that something on my machine doesn't like Ewidos guard.

The strange thing is that this happened twice, and just when activating Avast' Standard shield  :-\ both times.

Eweything is fine now and works as wanted.
Thanks for your interest.
