    I've always been a fan of Ewido, and used the old version without problems for quite a while.

    However, I'm not a lover of the new interface on version 4.0, and now have further reasons to dislike the programme.

    I ran a scan tonight, and after a few seconds, it crashed my video driver (Toshiba 1100 series laptop, Intel(R) 82830M Graphics Controller, Driver, not for the first time I might add (this is the 3rd time).

    Tonight however it went further, and crashed my computer as well. What's more I couldn't re-boot, computer hanged before the log on screen appeared.

    So I did a "boot from last known good configuration" which fortunately allowed me to log on.

    OK, time to ditch Ewido, but the uninstaller was missing from Add/Remove Programs. So I tried the uninstaller in the Ewido folder in Program Files. No go there either (got told I didn't have the correct permissions).

    Quick System Restore, and the uninstaller was back in Add/Remove Programs, and Ewido is now in the bin.

    Anyone got any explanation for why this might have happened.
