The pro is a one time fee for a lifetime license....   then you get autoupdate, sheduled scan and protection module with IP block

Well, what if the user is not willing to, or not in a position to pay that lifetime license fee, then what would he resort to??

a2 free!

Download the uninstall utility`s  http://www.avast.com/uninstall-utility

run the V5 remover and reboot
run the 4.8 remover and reboot
run " Eusing Free Registry Cleaner " fix all and reboot  http://www.eusing.com/free_registry_cleaner/registry_cleaner.htm
Install V5 again ....reboot......and pray...... ;D

and i would replace Spybot S&D with Malwarebytes  www.malwarebytes.org   

Well, Im at work right now and the issue is on my home system, I'll do that, and get back to you on what ever happened. Thanks for the assistance.

ha...well..thanks for the well directed pun. Please enlighten me on what a llama is supposed to be... thanks for that. On a more serious note.. .I use Windows Xp Service Pack 3... and its not due to Spybot...Although i just wanted to provide information regarding my system.


SpyBot Search & Destroy should not be causing you problems.  See my signature.  I do use the immunizations of both Spybot S&D and SpywareBlaster.  I've had only one problem with Avast5 early on with updates not working after a few days, and a Add/Remove programs | Repair promptly took care of it.

They're available.  The only two that are resident all the time are Avast5 and Sygate Firewall.  The rest are on demand.  Run too many security apps resident and watch your protection fall apart or at least slow your system to a crawl.  The rest are all on-demand and are only loaded and ran occasionally, (once a week or less often).

Maybe there's some type of an conflict between S&D resident protection and the new avast! 5.x version--it does have a new AV/AS and Heuristics engines.  Know in the past that  S&D had issuses with other security software e.g., BitDefender.

As to your "UNSECURED too often" problem, do not have anything help to offer.  I'm using custom install of AIS 5 on three Win XP SP3 systems and have not yet encountered what you're experiencing.


As to S&D, was a longtime S&D user until I started using BitDefeder 8 AV and had issues.  I dropped S&D and switched to SAS free, and purchase SAS Pro upgrade lifetime license for $19.95.

Reason why I dropped S&D is even back then it was falling behind the other spyware apps as to detection and removal.

Have not seen any recent new tests/reviews of the newer S&D 1.4 and 1.5.x versions that S&D did very well; e.g.:
http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2261193,00.asp

You can use SAS free for awhile, and will eventually get an opportunity to purchase a lifetime license for the Pro version for a reduced price.  I also have the paid version of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware.  If I'm going to use and rely on any software on a daily basis I'll purchase or provide a donation to support it.

Hence as to your Poll I selected "Combination": SAS Pro on-demand, and Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware with the resident real-time protection.

As to your post "Well, what if the user is not willing to, or not in a position to pay that lifetime license fee, then what would he resort to??"
If not willing then its about time they learned TANSTAAFL  ::)

If truly in a position that one cannot afford to pay $20 for lifetime license, guess they would have rely on using one of the free apps available or do without.  Though would think that most that have the means (i.e., PC and ISP) to use the internet would being be able to afford $20.  ;)

The immunizations should not cause any issues since it's just making entries to the installed browser(s) security/privacy settings, i.e., it's not an real-time resident running.

S&D's Tea Timer real-time resident protection should be the only item that may cause of problems with the real-time resident protection of another AV/AS app.

You're welcome.

You can try The Best Free Security Software for PC
Don't if it's the "best", but it is a good reference list.
