    ThreatFire is way better than a blacklist scanner...

    Any reason not to use both?

    They seem to get along ok on my W2k machine. With TF being a behavioral detector and Boclean a blacklist scanner they should not overlap functions.

    Or is it possible they could conflict when something is detected?

    Reason why not use both

    A) TF already is a behavior blocker, so it will cover more zero day threats than Boclean

    B) TF checks the nti virus data base after an intrusion has occured.

    Hmmm... You misunderstood. He is asking about Boclean not CFP.:) Thread is named wrongly though.

    BTW I am curious to know if these issues are still there. Any one please?

    Thanks

    Yes, Yes, Yes ......

    TF is far superior to BOClean.
