    Is it just me or has anyone else noticed it, but since the latest updates from Ewido every time I click Scanner/Scan Memory I get about 40% through the scan and suddenly get a reboot forced on me!

    It happens every time (though never in the past) and I have been frantically looking at my system to see if anything else is to blame, but no luck so far.

    Anyone else experience this this? :rolleyes:

    Damn, it's still doing it!

    It must be my system, I'll have to investigate further. :'(

    Hmm... can see which process is scanned before the PC crashes? Can you test your memory with a tool like "memtest86"?

    Hi TopperID,

    In the past, I've had to unload and reload Ewido several times. There must be some conflicts somewhere. Nowadays, I just run it on demand. I keep KAV 4.5.104, ZoneAlarm Pro, and BOClean in realtime.

    All these reboots are getting on my nerves!

    I tried doing a full system scan with Ewido, which went OK - no reboot.

    The memory scan reboots me when it gets to Kavm, so I turned off KAV, tried again and got rebooted even earlier!

    I'm afraid I'm not familiar with "memtest86". I have noticed that all these reboots knock out my settings on Zone Alarm Pro and I have to reset it again! I really don't understand this at all.

    There has been a new ZAP release but I uninstalled it and went back to the old version - still no joy. Could the Ewido guard somehow interfere with the installation of Zone Alarm?

    I am not sure if you have done this or not but anytime a reboot occurs before a proper shutdown with ZA it will cause it to lose settings (for me at least). I would recommend setting the settings in ZA restarting properly then try your tests with Ewido so you don't keep having to reset them. Also I had this problem with adaware yesterday because of some ad/spyware causing it to reboot. Have you ran anything like adaware or spybot? Just ideas if you already tried them please disregard.


    Thanks,

    Chris

    That is quite possible. I always disable any of my security software when installing new or updating old security software to ensure no conflict. I only do this in cases of security software I trust and after a manual scan with my anti-virus, anti-Trojan, and anti-spyware software....

    Over the last couple of days I've had more boots than a cobbler!!!

    It definately seems to reboot while looking at Kaspersky, but swithing off KAV makes no difference and this never occured prior to the recent big download from Ewido; so I'm still suspicious of this being the cause, even if it only affects me! :doubt:

    The only other possibility is a 'critical' update I received from HP a couple of days ago, but I can't do anything about that.

    I've tried everything I can think of, so for me the solution is - don't do a memory scan with Ewido! :'(
