Welcome to forums !

Having all those things enabled on the same computer doesn't mean you are more secure than others. Actually, those things you just mentioned, are "killing" each other and they're "killing" your system as well. Btw, you can have all those antiviruses on same machine without any problems, unless you are using resident scanners in the same time...

Running hardware router/firewall, software Sygate Personal Firewall, avast! antivirus and that's about security in here. Never had any single problem with my system...

Cheers !

OK, did you take some time to look for possible solutions in these forums ? There is wonderful SEARCH feature up there. See here for newest avast! program update, and see if that solves your problem... click here:

BPSCG:

In Norton Internet Secutiry, have you tried turning off the spam blocking feature? I had tried everything else (before this newest beta update) and that seems to be the thing that was causing the problem (was NIS's spam blocker)

Just wondering. Let me know how you make out (I'm just curious to see how many ppl this works for)

Yeah, it would be great to get feedback, so guys from Alwil could trace the problem much more effective and faster. It would be of great help to everyone.

Cheers !

Great!  I say what my problem is.  I read and follow the advice here.  I say I've still got the problem.  I'm told to read and follow the advice here.  So why not just say I'm an idiot? ;)

And what tone is that ? We are trying to help you, if you don't want our help why did you ask in the first place ? And btw, no one ever mentioned that you are idiot. That's just nonsense.

We know that many of users came in these forums for help. We helped many of them, huge majority to be true... if some advices we gave doesn't help solving your problem, that doesn't mean those advices are not good. That could be because you have some different security programs working in the same time on same machine... no one in here could possibly know what could be exact solution for you specific problem. We always try many different possibilities, so many people came back tens of times to the same thread, asking what's next if some advice doesn't help at first try... they have will to solve their problem, and they have patience... but it looks like you gave up on first one. Well, that's fine with me...  ;)

I have Norton IS 2002; it doesn't have a spam blocker. I use Spamnix with my Eudora, but that filters messages after they've been downloaded; my problem is when I run avast! with the internet mail provider active, I can't even connect to my mail server, let alone download any mail.

BPSCG, how do you configure your email account?
The new mail detection that will work automatically. Please, set up your email account just as avast does not exists. It will detect the pop3/smpt/imap ports and scan your messages.

Of course, if you use a spam killer, the settings will be describe in help files or the website of the spam killer manufacturer.

Btw, which is your OS?

Hi there.  I'm coming into the discussion kind of late, but essentially I have the same problem Barabba had with endless timeout messages.  I have XP and Outlook Express, use the Avast home version, with Norton 2002 Antivirus (ok, don't throw things at me).  :-[  Anyway, at first I turned off the "On-Access Protection Control", but then my e-mails were no longer scanned for viruses.  Last night I simply did a system restore to a time before I downloaded 4.5, but I don't think my e-mails are being scanned yet.  (I'd like 4.1 back, please.)  I'm REALLY not a technical person, so is there a cliff-notes solution to this problem yet?  Thanks.
