    I installed the 6 month trial of F-Secure yesterday and today I let it run it's first scheduled scan. So, keen to see my new AV in action, I left my mouse alone for 5 minutes and waited to see what would happen... after 5 minutes it started a scan... Only thing was, it somehow started the Spyware Terminator scan and not F-Secure AV :eek: ... how wierd is that?! Anyone know how an app can do that?

    cheers

    BTW, I'm also running CyberHawk and Comodo FW on WinXP, P4

    dono but i would try another av instead of f-secure it is a resourse hog. someone run it on a 3800 amd dual core with 2gb and it slowed it down.

    so try kaspersky or antivir.

    that is really odd lol

    It sounds like some kind of scheduling task conflict. I’d uninstall Spyware Terminator and see what happens then.


    That wasn't the question.I am gonna ask you to stay on topic
