Fiddler It is not needed to protect your pc.. Close down the process then download the eicar test virus http://www.eicar.org/anti_virus_test_file.htm and you will find that avguard is still running which protects you. avguard does not appear in stsrtup it runs automatically , avgnt can be removed from startup after the update schedule has been set and the updater will still run. However this way you will have to terminate avgnt again afterwards. I prefer to chain my browser launch to "preupd.exe" which just launchs the updater at browser launch so I do not forget.

Eric Prawit Seit "The application module C:\Programme\AntiVirPersonalEditionClassic\avewin32.dll cannot be found or has been modified or destroyed.", läuft AntiVir gar nicht mehr. "The AVGNT.EXE cannot be started. Please check your installation!" ... Gut, dass ich noch andere Back-Up Plans habe. Firma antwortet nicht auf wiederhlolte Anfrage.
