    Hi,

    I run Escan (KAV based product) but as AVG is not running at Jotti's scanner or VIrusTotal I would like to install AVG as well as just 'ondemand' so I can see which samples are detected and how quick they add samples.

    Is it possible to do a 'custom install' and during installation to select, do not load e mail scanner and do not load real time scanner?

    I don't want to crash my computer having 2 real time scanners running at the same time.

    I am aware that if this is possible its best to turn of Escan real time scanner when doing a on demand scan with AVG.


    Many Thanks

    Jlo

    Hi,

    Found out you can install AVG as on demand easly. I just went for custom install and did not tick resident guard or e mail checking. No clashes.


    Cheers

    Why?

    I suppose you can't have every AV represented at Jotti's, and with progs like Kaspersky, F-Prot and Nod, it's hard to think what extra clout AVG would be bringing to the party. The two free AVs at Jotti (AntiVir and Avast) both have better detection rates than AVG.

    Hi TopperID,

    Yes I agree with you adding AVG would not be 'adding clout' as far as detection but its still interesting to have Antivir, Avast and AVG in the mix to see what they do detect.

    Cheers
