10.4: A quick fix for CA's Threat Manager install script
Authored by: Ilgaz on Jun 30, '07 07:26:58AM
If you ever need to do such thing on any antivirus/security solution: It is not a "Fine" software.

Intego Antivirus X4 (Virusbarrier) actually runs heuristic level nowadays and I have never needed to disable it or tweak anything.

Of course I don't say switch to it but as ex windows guy, I tell you the basic requirements for a commercial antivirus

1) non intrusive
2) Knows when to back up
3) Has heuristics support (e.g. watches what is going on instead of looking for sigs)
4) No need to disable while doing anything (read 1)

Also as any Antivirus hint/tip: Yes, there are people running antivirus against MS Office viruses, corparate policy requires or they are people who wants to be ahead of threats.

If you will _only_ check MS Office viruses or Windows viruses, if your company/organisation policy requires running Antivirus, I recommend ClamAv which is free (donation) ware.
