Hi guys :thumbsup:
Can I scan my PC with Ewido Anti-Malware in normal mode?
Can I use Ewido Anti-Malware and Spyware Doctor in my PC? Not, of course, at same time, but first one and after the other.
Thanks and regards. :flowers:

Hi Darthy.

Ewido can be used in normal start-up mode. It will still detect malware and delete it. The reason that it's recommended to run in safe mode is just to make sure that it can delete any malware that runs in normal mode that does not run in safe mode and therefore protected. Its always best to run in safe mode, if only to avoid the agro of running a scan in normal mode to find you have to run it again in safe mode to delete a problem that you cant do in normal setup.

....and yes, you can run Ewido and Spyware Doctor programmes after one another,which is a good thing to do, just not together as they may conflict with each other and not work properly.

Just always remember to update Ewido and Spyware Doctor before running a scan,which you need to do in normal mode as you cannot update in safe mode.

Happy browsing :thumbsup:

If I may make a suggestion. Start "Safe Mode with Network Support", that way you can update the programs prior to scanning.
This will not work with USB NIC since the drivers will not load in "Safe Mode".
