Re: anti virus mouwear question with Jaws

Hi 
Gerald, many thanks for explaining about viruses and attachments I think I have 
learned something new 2day! grin. Just one more thing you said something about 
AVG having a built in "web scanner" well is this part of microsoft's security 
assentials as well? Or is it isn't where can I download it and finally is it 
free? 
Many Thanks again!
Daniel

Neither MSE nor AVG Free Edition scan outgoing email messages.  MSE scans 
attachments, which is the only way you can trigger a virus in an incoming email 
message.  MSE is easier to use than AVG, and in recent comparison tests, 
outscored AVG at malware detection. AVG has a built-in web link scanner that 
alerts you to unsafe web pages, but this can be installed as a stand-alone 
application that complements MSE.  Real time protection means that the program 
automatically scans files for malware whenever they are opened.

  Hi many thanks for your sergestion! But I was just curious. You said 
uninstall AVG and keep microsoft's security assentials I was just wondering why 
that would be better. You said something about "real time protection" Does that 
mean microsoft's security assentials will scan incoming and out going emails 
for me. I was just wondering what are the difference between the two 
programmes. 
  Many Thanks so far 
  Hope to hear from you soon and everyone else!

  You should not use both AVG and MSE on the same PC because they both provide 
real-time anti-virus protection and therefore could potentially interfere with 
each other.  I suggest keeping MSE and removing AVG.  You can also keep Malware 
Bytes because it is only an on-demand scanner that will not interfere with MSE.

    hi guys, I have a question about anti virus and mouwear with Jaws. Basicly 
I have 3 programmes on my computer. 1. AVG Free 9.0 2. Malwarebytes' 
Anti-Malware and 3. Microsoft Security Essentials. Basicly with all the 
programmes above is it really nessacary to have them all installed? I mean I 
heard that having more than one programme on your computer can cause comflects 
with each other but I have not seen any yet. Also is it possable that my 
computer will slow down? I heard that people are using Microsoft Security 
Essentials more than avg don't know if that's true but I was conserned about 
the programme not having a scanner for emails. if so which one should I remove 
from my system?
    Many Thanks and hope to hear from you soon. 
    Daniel
