I've had **bleep** AV for almost four years now (v9, v10, and now v2008), and have never been able to enable the Scan Web (HTTP) traffic option. If I did, in any browser most websites would come up blank; some would come up slowly with strange-looking characters and formatting; and maybe only 20% would work OK. In addition, some of my Firefox bookmark icons would change permanently to weird icons unrelated to the site (e.g. squiggles for Yahoo, a bed for Weather Underground).
Today, I finally discovered that if I turn off my Zone Alarm Pro (an older version, 6.1), everything works fine with HTTP traffic scanning enabled in **bleep**. I checked the Windows XP built-in firewall, and there is no conflict there.
But I want to continue with my Zone Alarm Pro 6.1. As long as I have HTTP scanning off in **bleep**, they "play very nicely" together. But with the increasing number and sophistication of malware, e.g., virulent Trojans that completley bypass the browser cache, I really want to enable HTTP scanning in BD as well.
I have given high permission to all the **bleep** processes in ZA Pro. There MUST be some settings (probably in ZA) I could use which would permit me to continue with both programs, but still enable HTTP Scanning in **bleep** without wreaking havoc.
Any suggestions? Anyone using BD, including HTTP Scanning, successfully with ZA?
EDIT: As long as it bleeped out the name of the AV, I should point out that another AV I trialed -- but didn't like as much -- did NOT have a conflict with ZA even though HTTP scanning was enabled.
