      IE 11 copy/paste problem

      It has come to our attention that people using Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) are having trouble with copy/paste to the forum. If you encounter this problem, using a different browser like Firefox or Chrome seems to get around the problem. We do not know what the problem is, but it seems to be specific to IE 11 and we are hopeful that Microsoft will eventually fix it.

Backup Antivirus Scanner

9 posts in this topic

I'm looking for a good, on demand antivirus scanner to backup NAV 2004 (I

 

probably dont need one but what the heck). Someone advised me to grab

 

BitDefender Free or F-Prot for DOS. Any suggestions?

I agree with Paranoids recommendations. Also there are a lot of free online AV scanners to choose from as well, for another opinion.

Online scanners are a good idea, just in case your computer is totally compromised that is "rooted".

 

Let's see online scanners, there's one for trend and Panda which are popular..

 

I think there's one for Dr web and several others too but you can scan only indidivual files.

 

Any more?

As far as I know, Norton is unfriendly with other AV programs. So in order to avoid

 

a conflict with the two AV programs, do I first disable Norton Auto-Protect and the

 

LiveUpdate before installing AVG AV? Also is there a way to disable the

 

AVG Monitor so I can still have Norton as my resident scanner?

I have used NAV and AVG (free) together in the past w/o any problems.

 

Generally you should disable ALL programs (not just NAV)except Explorer and Systray, thru Ctrl/Alt/Del, before installing any program. (unless your online).

 

Sorry i just can't remember how to disable AVG's resident protection, it was a while ago when i had the program, but i'm sure it isn't that difficult. After install, and a system restart, just disable NAV protection while you go thru AVG looking for the correct way to disable things. Hopefully someone will post here who currently uses AVG. Hth

Thanks for your responses.

 

I found a way to disable the resident monitor and now NAV and AVG co-exists

 

happily.

The AVG monitor is better than Norton I believe.
