Web Shield(s)

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

I'm running Avast free and OA free.

I noticed that with both Web Shields enabled browsing slows down and FF crashes often, wich means I'll have to turn one off.

So the question is, wich one?

Your advices will be wellcome.

Thanks.

Do you have avast! excluded from OA? I run them together that way with no issues.

The two webshield functions are quite different.

The OA webshield validates your DNS results and allows you to block (or allow) specific domains. It has no AV properties.

The Avast! Webshield is an actual AV that checks your web links for viruses.

So they should not be competing to perform the same functions on your web interfaces

Yes, they are mutually excluded.

humm... maybe it is a coincidence. I use to have OA's Web Shield off and turned it on yesterday, so I've noticed these issues only for the last 24 hours. It could be something else. I'll give it some more days and see how it goes.

Thanks for the answer sded.
