In the not so long ago, Nvidia recommended disabling antivirus apps before installing display drivers. Could the same apply when installing Outpost Firewall Pro. The first time I did, I had Microsoft Security Essentials installed and my PC crashed. Second time was with Avira installed. (not both AV's at the same time). I got a 'pop-up' that outpost had caused it and asked to send a report (I did). I contacted Agnitum and sent the 'minidump' file. They sent me a registry patch, when I installed it, I again got Bsod after rebooting. :huh:

Its not very good practice to diable Av's or FW's to download anything only in extreme circumstances, you should always try and find a work around if you can !

If life is not an option then why are we not given the option in the first place !

I normally download to my Desktop then disconnect from the net
Then I shut down all running programs including AV and firewall , then install from there

Thats my method, but did not disconnect nor disable AV. It was a firewall (Outpost) I was installing, it auto shuts-down windows FW.
What I want to know:- was it my AV that caused the BSOD. That said, after recovering from BSOD my PC is running sweetly and am adverse in trying it. :huh:

Outpost has built in anti-spyware, so you might want to disable that component before installing MS Security Essentials.

In my personal experience I always install Outpost first and later Avira or avast!. During setup of anti-virus, Outpost always warns that they have known to cause problems so Outpost puts them in exclusion list automatically.

I never use Outpost anti-spyware as it fails to open too many files.

My theory was when doing a clean install, add an AV program and leave windows FW as its ample when doing all updates, then install Outpost. If AV is Avira it warns of incompatibility. If its MSE it does not. I always add 'web control' as its the best IMHO. :huh:
p.s.
I replied earlier but a maintainance program was being done and everything was lost when submitting post. :huh:
