Installed Ewido for on-demand scanning only. So i turned off the Guard within Ewido. The Guard still appears on reboot, but with an X through it. I presumed this indicates it's disabled. But i don't want the icon there in the first place. So i went into services and disabled the guard. But then on reboot there is a message from one of my other apps telling me that there is a new startup - guess? Ewido guard. No matter how i disable it, it still loads up at startup with it's icon sat there in my systray. I DO NOT WANT IT TO START UP - PERIOD! It's like having a piece of malware on my pc that i'm unable to remove. So i did the only thing i could to get rid of this from my startup. I uninstalled it. Is there no other way to stop the guard from starting up? M.
