I just started using 4.0 today.

It felt a little easier on resources on the 4 computers I've scanned, so as long as the detections are still there my vote goes to 4.0

There have been a lot of positive comments regarding Ewido on this forum, but when I read reviews elsewhere, I run into comments like this:

http://www.download.com/Ewido-Security-Suite/3003-8022_4-10543926.html?tag=lst-0-1

Is adding Ewido to the mix, (and discontinuing the use of TeaTimer) a real advantage, or is Ewido just a fad amongst the avast! forum people?

We all have our favorites just as we have favorite Browsers.  Much of this is user preference.
If what you're using has kept you safe, IMHO, there isn't any reason for change.

Well the Editor only gives it three stars but the overall user reviews give it 4 stars so I don't think it is only avast forum people who like it. These reviews are obviously for 3.5 so we will have to wait and see how 4.0 fares.

However, in these forums when Ewido has been recommended to try, it has been because there has been a possible trojan on the users system and for the majority of cases Ewido has detected and eliminated the trojan.

Bob, David, thanks for the comments.

I went ahead and installed 4.0, and ran the scan. It picked up 6 tracking cookies the others had not, so that's cool.

However, since installation, my computer has slowed to a crawl. Though I have a very fast internet connection, it could be my old box -  1.4 GHz Celeron with 384 MB of Ram, or it could be because I left TeaTimer activated, and the Ewido Resident Shield is turned on by default.

Unless there would be compelling advice otherwise, my long-term plan would be to keep TeaTimer activated, and go with the free version of Ewido as an on demand scanner when the trail period expires. Short term, should I turn off the Ewido Resident Shield, or TeaTimer?

Thoughts?

After the 14 trial period the Resident function and auto updates will be disabled and you have to manually update and use the on-demand scan function. Which is basically what I do, update the signatures and run a scan as a part of my regular weekly system maintenance.

Tea Timer is doing something entirely different so it really isn't possible to compare.

What is the Resident TeaTimer?

The Resident TeaTimer is a new tool of Spybot-S&D which perpetually monitors the processes called/initiated. It immediately detects known malicious processes wanting to start and terminates them giving you some options how to deal with this process in the future: You can set TeaTimer to:

- be informed, when the process tries to start again
- automatically kill the process
- or generally allow the process to run There is also an option to delete the file associated with this process.

I don't have TeaTimer enabled on my system, I can do without the interference and since I'm using the version 4.0 trial of Ewido (and previously 3.5), shortly the resident element will die leaving me with the on-demand side only.

I have SoftForYou keylogger installed on my system because my girlfriend is constantly forgetting login details of all the cr*p sites she messes with.  Ewido is the only tool that has ever identified it, until I ran Ewido I never could work out how it hid itself so well.

one question on ewido 4.0  ::)

do i need to have the resident shield running in the background(i have the full version)if i have spy sweeper running or does anyone know if it will conflict with other programs as of yet,say in/out firewall and others?
wonder if ewido resident shield is heavy on your resources? ;)

I think spy sweeper is enough... but, why did you buy ewido if you don't need it?
If you're using the trial version, ok, you can try if it conflicts with spy sweeper. I think not, but, of course, you'll use more system resources.
In my tests Ewido resident shield hasn't that much impact, although I just use it while in trial period, no more, now only on-demmand  :-\

I shut off the Start with Windows option, and unchecked the Resident Shield and automatic update options, and my box sped back up again.

I don't think it's the program that slowed it down, just that my amount of resources was being taxed to the limit.

I'll just let the trial time out, and then keep it as an additional layer of protection as an on demand scanner, as others have suggested.

Thanks to all for your help and comments.


Edit: 6/22 - I have changed the signature below, to reflect the addition of Windows Defender and Ewido, and the deletion of TeaTimer.

hi again tech ;)

don't know why i paid for it-guess it was like a kid going into a candy store-gotta have it thing-an impulse,i guess. :o
you are right!i have never seen it pop up and alert me or anything like spy sweeper does(that one program i am glad i paid for) ;D
i will turn off the resident shield and just use spy sweeper as real time protection(at least i  know its doing what it is supposed to do) 8)

have a good one tech and avast! world :)

thanks for the info on spy sweeper on the ewido website--three stooges(the best!!)i like the avatar above :o
another question,i downloaded the new netscape browser 8.1(used netscape a while back)and works with web shield but when i ran a scan with ewido it found over 1500 of these::
mozilla.104:C:\Documents and Settings\drh\Application Data\Netscape\NSB\Profiles\hyx8lzdd.default\cookies-47.txt -> TrackingCookie.2o7 : Cleaned

does netscape have a lot of tracking cookies or what and is it safe to use since it's only tracking cookies and ewido is cleaning and removing them ::) ??? :o
Ccleaner and other cleaning app's should remove them also :D
i think i will  leave the shield on since spy sweeper has only as far as i know- an i.e. tracking cookie shield ::)
