Antivirus issues

#21
I am using Windows 7 64 Bit, I want to use the free Kaspersky AV that Microsoft links to but both times I installed it the internet was no longer available. When I uninstall Kaspersky I can reach the internet again.

This is an ASRock mb with a ULi onboard LAN port. Is anyone using Kaspersky with the 64 bit version?

AVAST on W 7

I have successfully installed AVAST (latest ver.) on my W7 and it works in the same way as in Win XP and Win Vista for me . No problems so far.

Well I am a definite fan of Avast, unfortunately from what I have found, Windows 7 in COMBINATION with Samba shares (on Debian-Linux) for me result in BSOD with 'txd.sys', the BSOD's occur anywhere from 1-15mins.

Its my understanding that it is not the virus scanner but the network card drivers, at least that is what some others have found. Unfortunately as I am using the network card from the MB (Gigabyte - P45-3UD3L) which is a Realtek 8111? I cannot find a suitable replacement driver.

I will have to give a couple of the other above mentioned anti-virus software a go to see if they will work.

Note - I have Avast on my GF's pc with Win7 and no problems, however it is at a completely different location (along with hardware) so does not have access to my Samba shares.

For the testing time of the Win 7 you could use Kaspersky Antivirus 2009 beta, trial runs 90 days, that should be enough, until new versions (RC) ar released. Download link in another Antivir-thread in the forum. It's actually a complete security suite, so no worries about malware. Had some problems with it earlier, but seems to run ok now. Kaspersky Internet Security 8 (2009) ran fine on my previous Win 7 installation, but trial is limited to a month. You might be able to find trial-resetters, that work, would be ok for testing a Windows beta, but later on...
Since I did a clean install of Build 7022 with Kaspersky 2009, I've got some problems downloading with IE8, but for now I can't determine wether it's a IE problem or Kaspersky. The download progress windows come up, but then nothing further happens. can't move, resize or minimize them. And download doesn't start. Any ideas?

Kaspersky

Kaspersky is a good AV but if you ever want to replace it , you will have to format and do a clean install :confused:. If you remove it you loose your internet compleetley, :mad: it will shout down your nick cards!!! Pice of sxxx. As for me I am going to waite till Windows 7 goes to the market and put it on a SSD drive and will be using another AV :D.

Thomas :cool:

Spend your money on getting AVG internet security. Semmlessly works with windows 7. Finds most viruses. Stops bad websites and finds rootkits. Only problem I have atm is I cant remove a rootkit file it found.

I disagree. I have used avast and it has found nothing. To find viruses and the likes you will need a combination of programs. AVG, Nortons, NOD32 or Trend Micro, Malwarebytes Antimalware, Superanti Spyware and Regedit knowledge. I try not to use Nortons as I tends to leach and hog system resources and once its on your system you need to be genius to remove it.

^^m8 have u tried the 2009 version of Norton??? Its light on resources and gud in detection. I worked for Symantec and take my words. This is the best version released by Norton ever.
