I had a problem with my computer and had to uninstall the trial version of ewido 4.0. After fixing the problem I tried to reinstall it and it changed from the trial version to a free version without resident shield or automatic updates. My guess is that there are some files left behind after unistall that signals a reinstall to switch to the free version. I would like to try ewido 4.0 as I've heard and read only good things about it. Can anybody help?? Oh yea... I have an error file that states " Error: StartServiceCtrlDispatcher failed, Value: 00000427, Position: .\service.cpp, 71"
