crashes using Spybot and Avg

Post by Guest » Fri Jan 28, 2005 4:55 pm

I use or try to use Spybot and Avg to protect my computer. However, Spybot almost always locks up when in use and Avg about half the time. I think this is likely due to my crappy computer, but I wonder if anyone else has a similar expereince or better still a solution.

I have considered software incompatibilities so I usually try to run just those programs, singly, with nothing else- no firewall, or RAM manager or any other program but to no avail.

You should not be cleaning SpyWare while you are browsing the Internets. Same goes for Antivirus activities.

You should set them up to run during idle hours.

I think it's still the only forum that "Guests" can post in.

Guest,
Unless your CPU is < P120 and your RAM < 32MB, I can't see it being due to your PC spec's. The most likely cause is one or more programs is using the available resources, and thus, causing problems when other programs try to use them.

A hcomplete ard drive wipe and OS re-install would probably help.
