I don’t know if this is where this post goes, because i am new here. But will BOClean Anti-Malware work if I have Norton Internet Security running? Or will they have a conflict and not alow my computer to start like a couple of months ago when i had 2 anti-viruses?
Hiya! NOT at all unusual for antivirus products to detect the presence of other things and worry if a “competitor” might pounce on something else and take credit before your “new-bought toy” did. Kaspersky and I used to be good friends back in the day, and they KNOW who BOClean is. I’m not making any claims that they’re lying or anything - Eugene and I go back YEARS as buddies who respect each other, and have raised many a … ummm … errrr … “drink” wondering who’d fade on the floor first. Heh. Gene and I were usually the last ones sitting! =)
Anyhoo … no worries … it’s COMMONPLACE these days for any newly installed security software to detect the presence of others and worry … the issue is NOT “incompatibilities” but RATHER limitations in the Windows kernel … one of my OWN “driving forces” in design … for many internal kernel hooks, there are only 8 (or less) “teats” (mammal thing, no “■■■■■■” thing here) upon which to suckle.
there are a bunch of security proggies on a system, that FOUR or EIGHT MAXIMUM teats can run out, and there is what ANY security program is whining about when it says that … fear that THEY won’t get a kernel teat to suckle … IF
The warning simply means that they’ve detected BOClean suckling, and that’s a worry … there are NOT incompatibilities, and as long as you don’t have a BUNCH of kernel-watchers on your system, no problem … but there
ARE limits … if more than they allowed “sockets” are eaten, and there’s no more nipple, then their software won’t WORK … nor would anyone ELSE left behind when the count’s up!
Anyone WONDER yet WHY I wanted to go with COMODO since their firewall is ONE of those? Go with something that WORKS, means BOClean gets a teat … THAT was my concern about those who paid us back in the day … that there STILL be one left for BOClean’s customers … and here we are.
But no … that’s the reason for that alarm … Kaspersky doesn’t like to be left behind any more than
WE do …
So it’s kinda the same. Kaspersky or Norton. You can try, but be prepared to face incompitabilities. (:WIN) :SMLR
But that case was about KAV flagging BOC for some reason, anyway it’s not usual. BOC is specially designed to work along with an AV at least. I use it with Avira with no problems, and nobody posted here about conflicts with Norton.
I know 2 people who have NIS together with CBOClean, and they never reported a problem.
Because they already have too many problems with NIS ;D
thanks for all the replys guys, i guys i am going to try it.
Good choice. :■■■■ (even better choice would be throw away NIS, like I did, but … (:LGH) )
I understand your opinion
But you have to respect other peoples choices
i have already tried to get rid of NIS, but i relized i just bought a renewal, so i have to wait a year
I would never advise you to get rid of NIS
With NIS you have at least a decent FW and AV. And you have added CBOClean Just take one step at a time, and try to learn how to improve your security. But remember that payed solutions don’t have to be better than the free one’s
Just one tip : Comodo has a great protection against Buffer Overflow attacks that you can add to your current security setup withought any worries :
I do respect other people choices !!!
I respect everybody’s choices. And if NIS works fine it’s ok to have it. But you know - you learn with time (:LGH) whisper NO NORTON whisper
