    Hi.

    I used to use Returnil but it did not have the anti virus component then. I think it was th 08 version. If I use the latest version will I have to remove my current anti virus or is there an option to not install the the Returnil anti virus?

    Thanks.

    You can use RVS Virug Guard with your current antivirus, but you should make sure:

    1. The active protection features in the AV are disabled during RVS install and uninstall
    2. Using the RVS VG real time protection together at the same time as your AV resident scanner can result in slow performance on older or less powerful computers due to occasional redundant scanning (Ex: one detects the scan of the other and then "follows" the first to ensure it is not malicious activity). This should not be an issue with newer computers with faster hardware...
