    I am using NOD32 as a secondary scanner to Norton 2004 and I've noticed that there was a warning during installation that residential protection can conflict with another scanner that constantly protects.

    Now, my Norton Auto-Protect is on, but my resident protection is off (This leaves the icon for NOD32 red). Does anyone have any suggestions of what I should do in this situation? Like, should I just activate them both, or use only one (and if so, whihc one?).

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi kohryu6

    ... and welcome to Wilders :)

    You should only have one running resident.

    Your choice. If NAV is configured resident right now, try it for awhile. Then you could disable it and try AMON and see which one you prefer.

    You may also want to watch for any conflicts scanning e-mail as well.

    Regards,

    Thanks for the reply and the warm welcome! :)

    Now I'm faced with a tough decision for which resident to run. Perhaps anyone else can share their thoughts?

    Choose the one which which is the most stable and runs the lightest on YOUR system.

    dear kohryu6, Blackcat is right. if i were you i'd have choosed AMON as my On-Access scanner and Norton as my On-Demand scanner only.
