    Hello,
    I run F-prot as my primary av. I also have anitvir for a 2nd on demand scanner.I have turned off all running processes for antivir so that there is no conflict with the real time protection from F-prot.
    Am I kidding myself? Is there a problem having this setup?

    I run some of my PCs the way your running yours, and I have no problems. As long as you use a browser safer than IE, and something -- anything -- for real-time antispyware protection, e. g., WinPatrol, Arovax, SG, you'll be OK.

    It would depend on the method used
    as it has been reported that each Update can "turn the Guard on", so just watch out for that.

    That shouldn't be a problem.

    Never heard of an update turning the guard on when used as a scanner only.

    I think there will be no problems if the 2nd one is kept permanently inactive
