Multiple Virus Scanners: AEC Trustport: Similar freeware: Help

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
I ran into an article which mentioned AEC Trustport in Informationb
Week, how it allowed for several virus search engines to work without
conflicts.  The trustport platform licenced other anti-virus engines
to work in this wise: one was going real time, and others were going
on demand.  Generally the received wisdom is that virus scans conflict
with one another and the system is at best a hash and at worst a
crash.  Trustport has a platform to remove this issue.
    I contacted their support and requested a freeware version.  No-
go, they do not have one, have no plans to make one.  Fine, but here
are my questions:
(1) is there software which would allow me to use a software "toggle
switch" so to speak, and turn on a real time virs scanner and at the
same time turn off an on demand virus scanner, maybe several of them?;
(2) is there any rare or obsolete freeware which will allow the use of
more than one virus scan?
    Yes, some will say, they get along fine with three, but I
disagree.  Could anyone advise me of how to get, say, AVG and Zone
Alarm and some others, all freeware virus scans, to coexist and not
conflict on my PC, if I run them--NOT concurrently, but in
succession.  Maybe,hypothetically, AVG virus scan as a real time
scanner and Zone Alarm on demand, and two others on demand,
hypothetically.  Then maybe I want to make Zone Alarm the real time
scanner, etc. etc.  Got the idea?
    Someone please advise or help if you have the freeware to do it.
I thank you very much.

You need to learn to cross-post instead of multi-post.
Perhaps using a real newsreader would help.

This is most common for Email servers like MS Exchange erver.

On a desktop PC, you can numerous "On Demand" scanners but should only have one
"On Access"
scanner.  You don't turn-off "On Demand" scanning.  You just don't cause the "on
Demand"
process to start.  i think you are confusing the two concepts of "On Demand" and
"On Access"
scanning.

There are many usable "On Demand" scanners you can use to supplement the one "On
Access"
scanner.
My Multi AV Scanning Tool is but one example.  The free BitDefender is another.
