You could also use an on-line scanner to confirm, established connection to the on-line scanner of your choice and just before you do the scan, pause Standard Shield, enable after completion.

If you just want a "second opinion" demand scanner, have a look at http://download.drweb.com/drweb+cureit/ It's a 5~Mb download, standalone application. You run it from the download location; there is no installation, nor updating. To update, a new 5Mb application must be downloaded.
I've tried this, and Clam, and online scans while using Avast. None ever find a thing.

Be careful about trying to have too many security applications running. (Resident/realtime).
General rule is 1 AV. 1 Firewall (you can't have more than one.) and (optional but recommended these days) 1 Antispy/antitrojan.
You can have as many demand scanners as you want, two or three is probably more than enough, though.

Why Do I Love avast!?

avast Anti-Virus I think is the only anti-virus I can trust. I love avast because their support is magnificent. Especially the forums.

I would like awil to make their icons in the system tray more glossy though.

    Spyware Terminator is a great anti-spyware/anti-trojan with real-time resident protection.  And it's FREE!  Check my signature below for live link.  There is also a link to avast! & to my very good firewall.  I also use the free (on-demand only) AVG AS. ;)

    Ok then I won't pay for it.

    I used to have spyware terminator but the active shield was reallly annoying.

    But I'll try it again.

    Thanks guys.

    My New List Update!

    • Disabled AVG anti-spyware resident shield (Still have a 30 day trial of pro version, then it will go to free)
    • Installed Spyware Terminator - But worried if the resident shield will take over once again.

    I mean like spyware terminator not working, or the resident shield sometimes not loading at start up....

    Now it's ok, thanks to Uniblue RegistryBooster 2!
