    Pardon my ignorance in asking this, but I've noticed that on bootup the new Ewido jumps into my system tray first of all, followed by the SP2 Security Center shield telling me that I don't have an AV, then a greyed out KAV 5 Pro icon appears. Finally KAV gets going and the SP2 shield dissappears. Does this mean that Ewido is interfering with the important job that KAV has to do on bootup?

    I'd hate to think that a nasty could get going at this critical stage 'cos KAV was being edged out by Ewido!

    Maybe KAV is able to play catch-up when it does get going? Anyone have any thoughts on this?

    No worries--that sounds about right.I turned my sp2 security center off--it was a pain.

    Have you tried booting without the ewido guard enabled? Does KAV then start faster?

    Hello fish

    When i had kav on my computer without ewido it started the same--kav always was the last to boot up.I believe that it is just normal operations.

    It's the same here, kav always last to appear in the tray, but i would imagine the protection start's long before you see the "K" in the tray. :)

    I tried the first version of Ewido with the guard and it loaded before Kerio firewall.
    This latest version seems to do the same. Or at least it appears in the tray first.

    I would prefer that it load after my firewall.

    But Kerio is protecting your machine even if the firewall icon isn't there. maybe you have 2.1.5. so I shut up. yeah definately shut up ...:)

    I want to know if it would protect me anyway (my firewall, even when icons go first

    Maybe this is a false alarm folks, 'cos when I look at KAV's Report it says the 'Automatic scan on application startup' is a success. Also the Security Center shield did not appear in my tray in my most recent bootup - but it did the first couple of bootups after installing the new Ewido.

    Ewido is certainly quick in my tray at startup, and it did seem to slow KAV down, but perhaps things are settling down.

    I just wanted to be sure there are no compatability issues here.

    Praying never helped anyone. In this case, there is no reason for concern. You won't see KAV's tray icon until Explorer and kav.exe have both loaded. However, kavsvc.exe--which is KAV's service and the real workhorse--is already loaded by that point. The two (kav.exe and kavsvc.exe) communicate, but they are two totally different things.
