I have downloaded Ewido 4.0 trial version on my windows XP computer
but on my win2K pro I can't get the trial version at all. In other words
one has a resident protection enabled and the other doesn't. It's supposed
to work on both. Probably to costly for me to purchase, but I like to try
out newer programs. Any clues?

Thanks, I've tried that before but to no avail.
The Ewido thing works as if the trial period has
expired...I guess that's not such a bad thing
anyway. Just curious as to why I had no problem
installing it on windows XP. Thank Again.

When did you download Ewido 4.0? After the beta version, the Ewido folks were tweaking it some more. The current version listed on their site is 4.0.0.172. This happened to a friend of mine who installed over the beta version. It can also happen if you install, uninstall and then re-install.

Anyway the real time protection guard only works for 30 days and then is disabled unless you want to purchase it. I recommend using Ewido as a stand-alone scanner anyway and you don't need the resident shield. If you want to purchase it and use the resident shield then you should contact Ewido Support.

Quietman...It can also happen if you install, uninstall and then re-install.
Exactly what I did and I will keep it. Spyware Blaster supposedly runs
in the background, which I use so I'll just use Ewido once a week or so
for a scan. Thanks

SpywareBlaster blocks spyware tracking cookies and restricts the actions of potentially dangerous sites in Internet Explorer by adding a list of sites and domains associated with known spyware, advertisers and marketers to Internet Explorer's Restricted Sites Zone. SB does not run in the background. Instead it only requires installation and then enabling of all protection. After that you only have to check periodically for database updates and then enable all protection again.

It's companion SpywareGuard does have a very effective "Active Scan". It is similar to Spybot or MS Defender's "Active Scan". I run all three.
Yes, pretty much over kill.

I too run Spyware Guard along with Spyware Blaster and I added Windows Defender Beta 2 to my
list of friends to keep out the bad guys and there sneaky little programs etc. I guess I'm as secure
as practical. I also run Ad-aware and Spybot Search & Destroy.....Also AVG anti-virus and Zone Alarm.
Thanks for your help and incite..

I really bit the bullet this time and purchased Ewido. I
really like that program. That's the only one I'm paying
for. Hey, at age 75, and a one year subscription, It sounds
OK...Get my drift? :thumbsup:

It's supposed to be $29.95, BUT, you have to buy a backup CD which tacks
on another $10.00.
Now, I hope it's worth it...I guess for peace of mind it is.. :thumbsup:

A one year subscription - for life? joe883 is only 75. My dad is 84, and my grandma lived to 102!

Anyway, the price for a year is not too outrageous as prices go. Renewals are often less expensive than the original purchase, frequently by half or maybe more. You might want to investigate their website to see what they charge existing owners for renewals or upgrades for future reference.

Be save and secure, and enjoy many years to come,

FYI joe883, when I purchased my one year subscription,with like you said the "tacked on" back up CD, I immediately phoned the support line and told them I didn't want the Back Up CD and they refunded my $ for it! They do don't sell Lifetime subscriptions anymore.
But as Orange Blossom said....

Renewals are often less expensive than the original purchase, frequently by half or maybe more. You might want to investigate their website to see what they charge existing owners for renewals or upgrades for future reference.


So we'll have to watch for that!
