Hmmm...  I took PrevX off of my system.  For some reason it was preventing avasts modules from starting up when I would boot up.  I took it off my system and avast started working again.  :(  Weird.

After the update to Prevx, all you would have had to do was to grant permission to avas!  you didn't have to remove it.

Not necessarily true.  I've set prevx to remember my answer to allow the avast mods but it still causes an error when avast tries to auto update on startup.  I can still only update avast manually on my system.  

I'm a bit reluctant to turn prevx off now.  It's log lets me see the damage my girlfriend causes by not reading any dialog boxes and just clicking yes to everything.

If you update the program, I apparently doesn't retain old permission info and will ask for permission again.

A reminder to all, If you start reading in the middle of a post, don't just read the last post, look at all of them to understand what's been dicussed. :) :)

Bob

I'm aware how it's supposed to work, but on my system prevx still causes avast auto update to fail even after I've given it permission again after updating prevx.

Actually bob... it's NOT working like that on my system.  It will NOT retain most of the answers I give it.  I've told it about 6 or 7 times to allow the things I know are ok... and it still won't remember.  This all started WHEN I updated the 2nd time.  And it gave me no warning or dialog on avast... nothing... Avast just wouldn't become active at startup.

Bob, standard P4 XP SP2.

Negeltu, sounds like you had a similar problem to me.  Did you get multiple entries in your Prevx event log in quick sucession?  It was avast itself that told me it had failed not Prevx.

Yes...  I became very frustrated with the whole program and decided I didn't need it anyway.  I use Spyware Guard...Spyware Blaster... Avast (Primary scanner), Antivir (Secondary OD Scanner), AdAware, Spybot S&D, AnalogX Script Defender and Sygate Personal FireWall.  I think I'm pretty secure...  I'm also behind a router...NAT...  So... I'm not worried.  Once a program like PrevX starts acting buggy like that...  and preventing needed programs from running without my knowledge or permission... it's time for it to hit the road.   :-D

Hi Negeltu !be carefull by using avast! & Antivir together.
I think you're SUR-protected .You aught  to ask opinion others guys (Bob,Eddy,Technical....)It is possible that such a plethoric protection is dangerous.too much  may be too bad!

I think the problem on my system is that avast tries to auto update before Prevx is even fully up and running.  Order of startup is Sygate, avast and then Prevx.

No.. it is safe to use Antivir as OD scanner...  You must make sure that during install you make sure you have the resident guard unchecked.  All of those progs play very nicely together if configured properly.  I never scan with multiple av progs at the same time.  If I'm gonna do a system scan with antivir then I Pause avasts resident module.
