    Hi:))

    I am considering buying TDS-4 when it comes out shortly. Has anyone any idea if TDS clashes with either Trojan Hunter, or BOClean? They don't clash with each other currently. Hopefully there won't be an annual charge when the new version is released?

    Currently neither of my programs have any annual charges, which is why I would consider buying TDS-4 (as long as there is no annual charge). If there is I might reconsider purchasing...................Howard:)

    Many thanks for the reply. I did read the article. It is good to know that there is no upgrade charge...

    However I am still in the dark as to whether if version 3 TDS is compatible with either/both Trojan Hunter and BOClean over a time period. Clearly until the new version is released, I won't be able to tell one way or the other if all is fine with version 4, as it will be very different!

    I was hoping perhaps that someone in this forum might have one of the two above programs installed alongside TDS and could say if all was ok or not, over a longer time span!

    I should maybe add that my operating system is Windows'98SE, and my computer is a Pentium3 800. I am considering upgrading my computer soon, to Pentium 4 with the operating system WindowsXP, as it is a little dated.

    If I buy TDS now and install it now, then buy another computer, is it ok to remove it from this one then install it on the other, or would I need to buy a seperate license? Naturally I would only install it on one computer at any one time!

    Kind regards,

    Howard

    Hi Zoril,

    Which AV are you using? The reason I ask is because, if you have a good AV, and you are already running BOClean and Trojan Hunter in real-time, you probably already have more than enough AT protection. TDS-3 would be a nice on-demand scanner, in case there is a failure in the real-time defenses, but I think that the incremental real-time gain would be very small.

    If you are looking to create another layer of defense, there are other type of products that you can look at, that will all add some small incremental layer, but in a slightly different way.

    If you feel you need TDS-3 real-time, I would just wait until you get your new machine and try it out. There is a disctinct chance, that there may be some conflict somewhere.

    Many thanks for the reply.

    My Antivirus program that I use is AVG 7.0 Professional...

    I have found it to be quite good...

    My reason for considering a number of different Trojan Detectors rather then just the one, is that they seem to use different techniques re detection. If one misses out the other may work ok. I had thought if I bought TDS to use one just for offline scans rather have all in "guard mode" all the time.You are right the difference online would probably be very small...

    Reading the different forums TDS has a great reputation re detection rate.

    Can you say if I buy now then change computer if it will be ok to take it off one and put it on the other, or would I need a 2nd license?

    If buy a Pentium 4 computer with WindowsXP I will sell my Pentium 3 one with Windows '98, although I doubt that I will be able to take a holiday to the Bahamas on what I will get for it:)....................Howard

    Hi Howard,

    For your info:
    If I wish to do so, I can have both TDS-3 (Execution Protection enabled; the "on-access" part of TDS-3) and BOClean resident on my old W98SE machine.

    As for moving your TDS-3 to a new machine and un-installing it on your old machine, I guess it would be OK but the final word is of course up to DiamondCS !

    When you have your new machine with XP, I would advice to buy ProcessGuard from DiamondCS and RegDefend from Jason (programs that we, on our old W98 machines, cannot use).

    I hope this helps.
    Regards, Jan.

    Yes it might be a good idea to send an email to Diamond support to confirm if that would be ok!...

    I have heard great reports about Process Guard! When I buy a new computer it will certainly be one of my first downloads. RegDefend I have not heard of but I have noted it down to try it out when I upgrade! Thanks for that information? Most security software that I have purchased over the last few years has been from initial recommendations at Wilders. I have not been disappointed yet!.....Howard:)

    Hi there Howard!
    I'm sure you will love TDS on your current system and the future XP. Of course you can transmit it to the new system with the license you have, only if you keep it running on both systems a second license is needed.
    You can scan all logical drives via the network, not the memory on the networked system. This knowledge might open some perspectives (connected other systems, removable discs, laptops.....).
    I run both a win98se and an XP system networked, all goes well. I think on the win98se lots and lots of scanners have been installed or are still there, it's used a lot for betatesting and TDS never showed anything unwanted.
    There are some threads here in the TDS forum and in the TDS Private forum over at the DiamondCS site about what works with TDS, which you might like to study and finding out there are no known conflicts anywhere.

    Lots of luck trying TDS and all the other goodies from the DiamondCS site on your own system!
    Keep us informed how it goes please! :cool:

    Many thanks to everyone for their responses. I usually like to try out the trial version of most products if possible. After that I often buy when I like them.
    Not being very technical, I find the advice offered in forums like this to be invaluable and a great help.....Howard:)

    Of course, that's what the serious forums are for. We all learn from each other and therefor we like to read experiences, encourage to ask questions, etc. And you see how much we like to support and moderate these forums and help users around. Even our signatures can include very helpful info.
