    i know that your memory scanner scans for any malicious threats currently running and also frees up some space in my RAM. for this extremely useful reason, i tend to use the memory scan quite often on my computer (1-3 times a reboot [1 always on boot]), but now due to my constant use, i have grown a bit concerned. my question is: does memory scanning with ewido regularly deal any sort of damage to my RAM or system files over time?

    running ewido's memory scanner would not have any negative effect on ur memory. but feel free to run memtest86+ if ur concerned about ur memory.

    since scanning memory with ewido reduces the amount of memory that programs are using, i am wondering if it might be unloading malware-definitions that might be loaded into memory by other security programs..
