    I have seen this previous thread; https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=42528 where it has been suggested that DMON can give AMON a helping hand.

    Overall DMON, I believe, gives macro virus protection in Office, and checks for Microsoft ActiveX elements.

    Therefore, if you use an alternative browser to IE and have AMON on full settings, as recommended by Blackspear, does DMON need to be enabled?

    I use Open Office and Firefox so am I right in thinking it's OK to disable DMON?

    Open Office is not supported with DMON.

    As far as I'm concerned having multiple layers of defence is a good thing, and this is the way Eset have chosen to proceed, as have Symantec and McAfee, defence at arms length is better than up close and personal... ;)

    Hope this helps...

    Cheers :D
