    Default annoying start up popup

    hi, i have a problem with my current configuration of my virus scanners. although everything works ok. every time i start up my PC i get this message.

    The warning reads :–
    Conflicting Anti-Virus found warning.
    ZoneAlarm has discovered these conflicting anti-virus products on your computer.
    “AVG anti-virus” To avoid potential problems, ZoneAlarm Automatic (on access) anti-virus scanning will be blocked. You wont be able to turn on while conflicting products are installed.

    Check box reads: I want to override this block and leave on access scanning on.
    This may cause stability problems.

    my current security items are.

    Zone alarm extreme security (anti-virus and firewall.)
    AVG link scanner.(link scanner only)
    spy bot search and destroy.
    malwarebytes

    now, i do not want to remove any, AVG is just a link scanner and has no anti-virus components. i used an AVG removal tool to make sure and replaced it with just the link scanner.

    this appears that Zone Alarm is identifying AVG as a virus scanner when it is a link scanner. in short confusing itself it believing AVG is an active virus scanner.

    this warning message is annoying and i would rather find a way to on start-up have ZONE Alarm automatically activate it's override so i do not need to see that annoying conflict warning every time.

    Hi!

    sorry all user here, you need to report the issue to the ZA official technical support at the link in my signature.
    Its free for registered user, look for the live chat link. ZA extreme already does a check similar to link scanner so they may potentially conflict.

    Thanks,

    i checked no conflict exists, the main problem is zone alarm sees AVG link scanner as AVG anti virus.

    plus i do know about the link scanner but it only covers certain sites, roughly 1% of my search results. that is why i dedicate applications to specific tasks.

    as i said before i do not want to nor will i be convinced to remove AVG link scanner from my computer.

    I didn't want to convince you to uninstall at all , just gave you a possible explanation. For the real explanation you will need to contact the official technical support as they are the only ones to know how their program and related alerts are designed. So, no use to keep posting here, you need to contact them.

    The reason we detect the link scanner as a conflict is because AVG uses some of the AV technology in the link scanner and its enough to possible give you an issue.

    Thats why the warning comes up with the link scanner.

    Unfortunately there is no way to turn the warning off.

    Support cant help you on this. Sorry.

    Only suggestion is find another application that does what the link scanner does and replace it.
