    I've got NOD32 running AMON and KAV Pro 4.5 with monitoring disabled (e.g. only the Control Center service is running for scheduled updates and daily full system scan - KAV Monitoring service is disabled). I use KAV for on-demand scans, and for the email integration with Outlook (It scans my IMAP account, which NOD32 does not).

    Does anyone think the way I have this set up would cause any conflicts? So far it doesn't seem to.

    For the record, I have TDS-3 for Trojan-related scanning.

    mmmm, Not, there aren't problems if you aren't running KAV Monitor, but KAVCC use resources.

    Hi Adam,

    I removed your duplicate thread, but in that one you had also had an additional comment, which I hadn't seen until now, so I will add it here in my post.

    Thanks, Snap. My apologies for the double post, I'll be more careful.

    I'm actually not running the Control Centre .exe, just the Control Centre service, which serves as a scheduler only for auto updates and scan runs - I can't imagine it uses too many resources to do just that.

    I suppose I could disable it as well, manually update my definitions, and manually start global scans, but some automaticity is nice, and I do have a fast system (3.6GHz P4EE) and very sparse startup services and .exes.

    Regarding IMON - since I don't use POP mail, and I have a separate Trojan detector that's memory-resident (TDS-3) what are people's thoughts about going AMON only?

    Hi adamsfbay, double-posts happen to all of us, not to worry. ;)

    If I understand your question correctly, you have KAV scanning your emails (so that area would be covered) and NOD's Amon actively monitoring, right? I think with that set up you would be fairly safe. If something were to get past KAV's email scanner, and became active, Amon would then jump on it and alert you to the infected file. And if you have TDS-3's execution protection enabled, then you have the additional coverage there.

    I found this link below that may give you more information about IMON and AMON and some member's experience with them which may be helpful:

    I use POP3 myself and I have both IMON and AMON enabled, so I am not able to help you too much in regards to another AV's email scanning abilities. There are quite a few members that do use KAV, so hopefully they will see your post and add a comment or two. :)

    Regards,

    snap
