Anti Scanning Failures

  spuds 12:49 18 Aug 2006

As a point of curiosity, have you used any 'anti' programs that have caused your computer to crash with a blue screen?.

Everytime I try to do a scan with Ewido or RootRevealerKit, the scan commences, then about 1 minute into the scan, the system crashes. Tried uninstalling and reloading these two particular programs from new, but same results. Just wondering if these programs are seeking information, which the computer doesn't want to give up!.

Other 'anti' programs seem to work okay.

Ewido crashes if a certain spyware is present and you have to get patch to avoid it

Thanks Sethaniel. Thought there might have been something causing a block. Strange really though, on previous older version Ewido usage and downloads, there was never a problem. Now to look for the patch.

I use both the named programs with no bother as yet. If in doubt, good old Safe Mode tends to be a more reliable environment for scanning.
