Running Kapersky Antivirus + Comodo together

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

Threaded View
I was planning on running Kapersky antivirus (not security suite) +
comodo free on an XP Pro machine, but a colleague tells me that Kapersky
comes up with a message saying it won't install if comodo is already
there.  Is this true, as I can't find any evidence in google about it

It may be true for Kaspersky Internet Security (basically KAV with
firewall and other components) but I'm pretty sure not for KAV.  You
could enquire at the Kaspersky home user forum
(http://forum.kaspersky.com/index.php?showforum=4 )
where you get fantastic responsive help from users, beta testers and
Kaspersky employees alike.

Probably true. To get around this, you may be able to install KAV
first and comodo second, though I have no idea why anyone would
want both.

... possibly because KAV is anti-virus and comodo is a firewall?

I had thought of that, but if there was a reason why KAV displayed this
message it would be better in the long run to try and not circumvent
this by installing the other way round.

I am in the position where I am building my PC and taking image backups
at various points.  I definitely want to use KAV, but I didn't want to
unnecessarily register for a trial version of KAV each time in case they
got suspicious of my IP address since each PC has to have its own
licence.


Many thanks to the others that have replied too

Since so many users have dynamic IP addresses assigned by their ISPs,
Kaspersky can't be using IP address as one of its methods of
protecting against illegal useage. In any event, why not save the
KAV installation file to CD so you don't have to d/l it each time?

It would be a bit strange if KAV refuses to install on the basis of
a detected firewall product, if that's the "comodo" you refer to (and
not their av). I've heard of certain incompatibilites ... KAV not
playing well with Sygate in some cases ... but I'm under the
iimpression that during installation, KAV only looks for other
av products (and refuses to install if one exists) and not firewalls.
 
The Kaspersky forums are a good source for that kind of info.

It's not the download that worried me, it's the registration, as I have
a static IP most of the time

      I'm running KAV 6.0.2.621 with Comodo
2.4.18.184 with no problems at all. They seem to
compliment each other just fine.

I finally got round to testing this last night.
KAV will not install if Comodo Firewall Pro is installed

Install KAV first, then Comodo.

And then uninstall both, unless you want your system to get hosed.
(And then cease your Usenet existence, your stupid address fakers!)

 Not that I'm defending Sebastian per se (he's currently in my
killfile)...

 Non-fake email addresses and spam are linked, how?? With easy access to
email accounts it is fairly simple to set up an email address for use
with Usenet alone. The addition of a sig file with a simple "pass
phrase" and one filter in your email client and you can easily bypass all
of that spam.

Include "spam(trap)key" somewhere in the
body of any email to avoid spam filters.

Don't spambots pick up new from addresses on newsgroup posts within
about a day of posting?  I accidentally posted with the wrong id once,
and seemed to get spam fairly soon

1. Who says that you actually have to read anything sent to the provided
address? You're only supposed to provide a mail box, thus an e-mail address
which correctly receives mail. You're perfectly free to discard every mail.

2. The solution against spam are spam filters, not avoiding any
communication. If you'd do the latter, then the spammers have succeeded
ruining your e-Mail communication as well.

I had thought of that, but there must be a reason for it saying that.
Now I've got a bit more time, I will find the KAV forums and find out
why
