    Tried to install ViGuard Home trial version today, after install, when it rebooted the notebook, I was not able to start windows, only blue plain desktop appeared, with no icons and no cursor etc, although I tried multiple times. I was able to run ViGuard in safe mode( it gave some message that some of its part was not complete-- not remember exactly now what was the message- even reinstalled it over previous one in safe mode but the message persisted). But in noramal mode windows wil not start. So have to uninstall it in safe mode.

    Any idea wat could be the reason? I do have many other security appliances on my PC. May be some conflict?

    This would be a likely scenario. It certainly depends on what the many other security applications are, but if you have many, that is where I'd look.

    aigle,

    When you had said many, I was thinking of a potentially much larger list. However, according to a quick assessment of Viguard provided by kareldjag, see here, Viguard does display incompatibility with some classical resident AV packages. He didn't elaborate, but let's assume it is akin to the standard multiple resident AV issue. You might try uninstalling Avast if you wish to test it, that's would be my first suggestion. I don't see an obvious problem with the other applications listed.

    The reason of the blue plain desktop is that Viguard use some mechanisms

    under the best privilege in system, it hooks some important functions in

    system,but if another application hooks the same function,(like AV,Anti-

    Spyware..etc),There will be something unexceptable occur.So i don't

    recommend install so many appliances in your system.
