I have mistakenly posted the same topic in the wrong forum just minutes earlier
I'm really sorry
now I'm posting it here
Sorry if this is the wrong way to go about such type of mistake



Windows XP(NT)SP2
Resident AV- AVPE Classic


I needed a backup AV tool or utillity and I came accross ArcaMicroScan free- Arcabit-Poland

http://www.arcabit.com/products_arcamicroscan.html


I have downloaded it and installed it-Seemed like a simple tool without real installation

Installation is online - you run the exe Updater and everything comes by download
It seems like a standalone utillity(like Stinger).
There is nothing in ADD/REMOVE or in Startup

It does have a shotrcut
However it doesen't have a Help file and no information on it, in English anyway

If anybody have any information about this tool, please post
I don't know how to set Updates and

I don't know if there is any function that can conflict wit my Resident AV
I ask about the function because there are two exe files that are asking for permission to access the Internet:

ArcaMicroScan.exe -Protection Module

amsupd.exe ArcaMicroScan- this would be the Updater I think




Finally which one of those are supposed to have access to the Internet Zone in Zone Alarm all the time, if any

Thanks

English support here
Two active AV products will influence badly your PC however.

If you do CTRL ALT DEL do you see something in the processes resembling the name?
