Fixed my Timeout Errors on E-Mail Scanning
« on: November 19, 2004, 01:18:08 AM »
I use a Norton Inet Secure and it has a built in spam alert, If I leave it on i get a timeout error popup from Avast, that starts an Infinite loop so after about 590 of them popping up my computer would crash??
I did a little trouble shooting and found that the spam alert was causing this to happen. I have had no more problems since disabling it..
Hope this help someone else having this problem.

Bean ;D

Thanks for letting us know, really appreciated.

My personal opinion is never use anything from Symantec if it is for internet security ;D

Having Avast, Spybot s&d, Ad-Aware and ofcourse a good firewall is normally enough.
