Question and a suggestion


Recommended Posts


I know that having two realtime shields running at the same time is bad. I have one running from IS360 and one of Avast! 5.0


Even thought I haven't encountered any problem yet, is it still recommend that I turn one of the two off ?




Allot of the security programs I have used has a warning when I want to close the application. Like a example if I click on exit, is warns me; Are you sure you want to close ""? It is recommend to keep "" running to protect your computer.


If a program do say that, it will give me more the feeling that the program keeps me safe and should be running whole time.


And IS360 is a very good program and I'd like to see that it in fucntion later with IS360.

Hi there Blacksea,


I don't know how IS360's shields work but, generally speaking, one anti-malware with shields ON will not conflict with your antivirus' shields. You can even add a third party firewall with HIPS without conflict.


The rule is : never have two antivirus programs running with shields and the same thing goes for software firewalls (including the one in Windows). With anti-malware programs, it's less clear and it depends on the type of shields used. I wouldn't run two "similar" anti-malware programs with shields though (like IS360 Pro, MBAM with licence, SAS, WinPatrol, SpySweeper).


I use AntiVir here and it doesn't warn me when I shut the shields down ; I don't mind, especially since the Windows Security Center does warn me. My anti-malware program does warn me but it makes no real difference to me. Personal preference, really.
