Anti-virus problems anyone?

  Forum Editor 23:41 14 Jan 2009

Since I installed the beta software I have encountered two problems.

First, I started getting BSOD crashes, and the crash dump told me that the problem was a file called SASKutil.sys

I tracked this down to SuperAntiSpyware, and once I had opened up msconfig and disabled the software in the startup list Windows 7 loaded without further problems.

Secondly, BitDefender 2009 is turned off, and cannot be turned on again - I repeatedly get the message that BitDefender services can't start.

What anti-spyware software are you running that is stable in Windows 7?

No problems encoutered with Avira Antivir thus far

I've installed AVG Free, and it works well. Microsoft suggests either AVG, Norton 360 3.0 beta and a preview of Kaspersky Anti-virus

I am using Avira also as when I had Trend Micro installed it altered all my permissions so I couldn't do anything such as delete files or install/uninstall progs. I reinstalled the beta and put on Avira instead of TM and it works great. No issues at all so far.

AVG Internet Security 8 (paid version) running absolutely fine.

Another vote for AVG 8 Free. Installed and running without problems.

As for Anti Spyware, Spybot also installed and runs OK. It has also integrated with the Security Centre but the status is shown as 'snoozed'.

for AVG 8.0, which is now running along nicely.

AVG 8 Free runs OK for me also.

Avast runs ok also.
