    I know that for example KAV antivirus is a realtime protection

    And AVG antivirus is a resident shield protection.

    If for example KAV if they wanted to can they have the both realtime protection and resident shield protection o_O

    Hi,

    I may be wrong but I through Kav Real time protector and AVG resident sheild protection is basically the same thing but called different names. They are both On access scanners.

    Cheers

    Resident Shield is the same thing as Real-time scanner.

    There are several words for same thing like:
    On-Access Scanner
    Real-time Scanner
    Resident Shield
    Resident Protection
    .
    .
    .

    All these mean the same thing,scanning files when they are accessed or moved/copied/created. It's just the naming preference of specific company.
