Thanks Markb for the input & welcome to Poco Forum. :D
KAV whoever is not free. :?

Here's another free AV: ClamWin
and it was discussed at Wilders Security Forum.

Anti-virus

Postby simon_e » Wed Aug 25, 2004 3:36 am

I use NOD32 and found it easy to install and very, very effective in use. See http://www.nod32uk.com/products/products.htm
It is isn't free, but it is small and very fast when doing a full scan. And it just worked with Pocomail out of the box. It updates its virus definitions automatically at a schedule you set and just keeps on working ('course now I've said that it'll all go pear-shaped :)

Thanks for your input.
I haven't tried NOD32 yet, but from what I've read, it doesn't use a lot of resources and has great heuristic detection. Currently there's a new version in Beta.
Maybe I'll give it a try one of these days. :wink:

Hi all,
FWIW I run with Robin on this one - having very happily used Norton AV 2003 till subscription eventually gave out having extended too many times I naively bought NAV 2004 thinking '04 must be better than 03 - in my case not true ..........comprehensively crashed my system, stalled, caused aborted shutdowns, extra lengthy start ups ................needed something better luckily I came across Kaspersky which as Robin says " does precisely what it says on the tin". Can't really ask for more than that.

Regards

Charles

Robin was right about that. It does the job for me too and it's not as expensive as NAV. Further more it updates every hour without a glitch. :wink:

Actually.....I've just rolled back my installed version of KAV5 from 5.0.149 to 5.0.142. The reason? I was having some strange effects and I didn't know what to put it down to:

KAV was using all the CPU time it could
It hadn't updated for several days
It had stopped scanning e-mails
I couldn't get the front-end application to load
Barca was taking *forever* to check and send e-mails (although SimpleCheck, that I use for monitoring a number of POP accounts for new mails, seemed fine).

All this started at about the same time as I installed PM beta 1965. Co-incidence? I don't know. Anyway, I'm back up now - let you know if anything more happens.

:shock: Sorry to hear, Robin.
No problems at my end with version KAV 5.0.149 & I also have PM beta 1965 installed.
:roll: Maybe something else that's interfering. Keep us posted.

You could always try Avast Home edition.
Just a word of caution: don't use the in & outgoing notifications, as it could result to receiving blank messages.
Other members will maybe post other free antivirus.


That's odd. I've just began to try Pocomail with AvastPro, and I use notifications on both incoming and outgoing. I've noticed no problems whatsoever. Works like a champ.

Maybe something got fixed.
Anyhow I'm glad you're not experiencing problems with the Pro-version.
Have fun with Poco. :wink:

I had posted instructions in the old forum


I'm trying to set up the 30-day free trial of AVG 7.0, and have their detailed instructions. But I'm hung up on entering the port number in PocoMail. Anyone know how to do that?

Thanks.

You put port number changes in the account setup after a
colon pop server name:

mail.ispserver.com:5111
or
127.0.0.1:5111

Which AV?

Postby alanpitts » Fri Oct 01, 2004 11:30 am

I have for years used AVG 6 without problems, however AVG 7 needs a lot more manual configuration. I now use NOD32 (www.nod32uk.com), which I believe Microsoft use to scan their products before release? An excellent AV, faster than other mainstrem AV's and v.v. effective.

I, too, tried AVG 7 and found it problematic -- it has very bad "manners" during updates - it puts a window on top of everything stopping all other work until the update is done, and seemed to be associated with system instability. At least the system seemed to hang up after every system scan.

But I'm not finding NOD32 much more likable. I can't configure it so it actually works with PicoMail. The problem is I can't find a way to set it to automatically delete the virus and proceed with the downloading of mail. It seems to insist that I manually tell it to delete the virus, in the meantime holding up receipt of all other messages and causing PocoMail to time out the download.

Go to the NOD32 Control Center and click on Setup in the IMON section. Then go to Miscellaneous->Setup->Actions and select Delete in the sections you want and it should work as you wish. fwiw i used NAV 2003 until a month ago when i switched to NOD32 and haven't looked back yet :)
