Hi,
I have been using Secunia PSI with Bullguard internet security for two years with no problems. Bullguard internet security 10 has just been released and this has a new module called Inspector, This seems to do something similar to Secunia but I don't kmow how well it does it. I asked Bullguard support if I should disable this module or can I run both without a problem. The reply was that I should uninstall Secunia as it can interfere with any of the Bullguard modules.
This advice seems well over the top.
Does anybody have any useful advice? Should I just go with my first thought and disable the Bullguard Inspector module?
Brian.

Hello.
That's a real quandry you've got for yourself ! If any of the Bullgaurd modules will conflict with Secunia....you have no option but to remove one of either of the programs you've come to trust, to avoid any potential conflicts.
Presumeably, disabling the Inspector module alone will not mitigate the conflicts.
As Secunia is a known quantity for you; and the new Bullgaurd isn't....there's other AV that is on friendlier terms ? The one may be much easier to uninstall than the other ?
It's something you can only weigh up for yourself. I hope I never get forced to make the choice !!

I have been told by Bullguard Support in a further exchange that they are in fact using the Secunia database for their Inspector module And I can disable the Bullguard module if I want to. It seems in effect that Secunia PSI is now contained within Bullguard internet security 10, or part of it at least. I will continue with Secunia though.
