Can I run CAVS in conjunction with my normal anti-virus program?

"Yes" with an "if", "no" with a "but"  ;)

You can have two anti virus applications installed but only one of them should be enabled to do real-time scanning.

To install CAVS as an on-demand scanner only, you should follow these steps;

1. Download the CAVS installation file.
2. Temporarily disable your existing anti-virus program and disconnect from the internet.
3. Run the CAVS setup and reboot when it is completed.
4. Once your PC has rebooted, open CAVS by double clicking the CAVS icon in your system tray (near the clock).
5. In the main CAVS window, click on the "Turn Off" button adjacent to "On Access Scanner"
6. In the main CAVS window, click on the "Turn Off" button adjacent to "HIPS Application Control"
7. Re-enable your other anti virus program.
8. You can now reconnect to the internet.

Once these steps are completed, you will have your previous anti virus program running as normal, and CAVS is installed as an on-demand scanner only.
