    Hi, i have had Trojan hunter for a little while now and i was just wondering after hearing so many good things about it i have decided to trial Ewido.

    So i am just wondering do i have to now uninstall Trojan hunter or can they run alongside each other. (i have active scan (meaning scanning all the time) set on TH if that means anything).

    Thanks

    Hi Anthony,

    My recommendation is to run Ewido in real-time for your trial and TH on-demand. There were conflicts between the two when I ran them on my machine.

    my advice is to run ewido constantly as finds much more in real time, even in zips rathen rest, the rest is on demand : tds-3, trojanhunter, spybot, av :)gdata)...

    cheers

    Hi Infiinity,

    I am trying to decide whether I should be running Ewido or BOClean in real-time. Both are stable and use about the same amount of resources on my system. Thanks. So far, I haven't found any overriding reason to use one vs. the other. Do you, or anyone else, have any comments?

    Hi Rich

    Why don't you run both, when i trialled Ewido i did with no conflict's at all. BOClean is on Ewido's Compatibility list . :)

    Hi Don,

    Up until recently this is what I have been doing. But within the last few weeks I have experienced registry corruption (and possibly other corruption) which I am attributing to two or more of these resident programs that were in conflict during a specific point of "action" - e.g. rollback of registry item, prevention of execution, etc. The prevention became worse than the bite.

    Since I have scaled back, the system has been very stable. I have so far found BOClean roughly equivalent but BOClean in general appears to be a "better citizen" on on my system so that is what is running right now. However, I am more than open to swapping it with Ewido if there are technical advantage.

    Hope this makes sense.

    Rich

    If the prevention is worse than the bite, then it makes perfect sence. :)
