I want to use ZAISS 7.0.462 with ZA's Anti-virus "On Access" scanner turned on.
I installed McAfee Viruscan Enterprise 8.0 with the intention of turning off McAfee's on access scanner,
and only using McAfee as a passive on demand "2nd opinion" batch scanner.
I want ZA Antivirus to be my only "On Access" scanner, and to keep the McAfee installed with McAfee's on access scanner disabled.
The problem is that ZAISS 7 sees that McAfee Anti-virus is installed, and automatically turns off ZA's Anti-virus "on access" scanner.
ZAISS 7 does this because it wants to avoid a conflict between 2 "On Access" scanners running,
but ZAISS 7 is not smart enough to realize that I disabled McAfee's "On access" scanner.
So once ZAISS 7 see's McAfee installed (even with McAfee's "On access" scanner disabled, ZA automatically disables its "On access" virus scanner
as well, and it won't let me turn ZA's "On Access" virus scanner back on.
So I need a way of disabling ZA's automatic check for McAfee's existance and ZA's automatic disabling of the ZA Anti-virus "On Access" scanner
when it sees McAfee installed with McAfee's "On Access" scanner turned off. Is there any registry hacks which will accomplish this?
The reason I want to do this is that ZA/Kaspersky missed a virus that McAfee caught with McAfee's superior Heuristic scanner,
so I like having McAfee as an extra "On Demand" scanner available from the Windows Explorer when you right click on a suspicious file
and chose scan with McAfee Anti-virus.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
