    I want to get Ewido for the sole purpose of an on-demand backup scanner; I understand it is 100% free for this use as well. In the future I will be installing another AT to run resident. I don’t want to bother installing the resident protection that Ewido gives you for 14 days, is there any way of doing this and just installing the on demand scanner?

    Hi Matt_Smi,

    Yes, on the install you can choose not install the on-acess scanner... ;)

    Regards

    Unfortunately ewidoctr.exe still needs to load on startup even if one uses Ewido as on demand scanner.

    Really? Thats odd, I would rather not having an extra process for something I am using as an on demand scanner only. What happens if you remove it from running at startup? Will the program still work?

    No..... :'(

    But on another side it doesn't take much memory. In any case that you computer require more memory it does drop to below 600K..........

    ( 444 K currently on my system.... )

    Although honestly i would still like to get rid of it.
