    1. I want to exit Splder Guard without restarting. When i right click on the Splder Guard Icon in the taskbar i don't see an option to exit. Only when i double click on the icon, there is an option "load at startup" but this requires a restart.

    2. What exactly is the system kernel protection in the Splder Guard? Do i need to check it? I have windows 98SE and windows XP.

    3. Is there a way to prevent Drweb Scanner to scan the files every time it starts?

    4. Does it have an autoupate option?
    I have Drweb version 4.31
    Thanks

    drweb comes with a scheduler, or u can use the built in xp task scheduler, or some 3rd party scheduler, like nncron (google for it) that has the ability to launch drwebs updater as soon as a connection is detected
    "C:\Program Files\DrWeb for Windows\drwebupw.exe /GO"
