  • RoadRunner.exe only 700 kb

    what am i doing wrong? since i run rr_updater.exe it tells me that there is a new version from 12/2008, download and install it. but says it failed.

    road runner.exe now is only approx. 687 kb big (before over 2.7 mb) and avg virus scanner tells me about trojan. ignoring the avg message i still canot start road runner.exe

    AVG is a piece of crap. It deleted your file.

    Uninstall that bloatware and reinstall RR. Then it will work.

          I switched to Avast anti virus (Free version) and never looked back. It has many more options and doesn't complain about RR or all of my AutoIt scripts!

              I think you may have that mixed up. The credit card fraud was not Avast, but "companies" selling license codes for their FREE edition Virus Checker. You can read more HERE. The link I posted above is the REAL Avast site. So Fair warning to those reading this, the free version of Avast is just that, FREE! Do not get suckered into paying for a license.

                  the 2.7mb version of the .exe was an uncompressed beta version. Guino compresses each official release and that takes the file size down to around 700k

                      Why even use an antivirus? What is so mission critical in your car, that even if there were a virus, it would even be noticeable? Dont download stupid stuff, dont surf pr0n, and you wont get a virus on your carPC. It just wastes cpu cycles and makes everything slower...

                        I was dumb enough to use McAfee at first, what a hog that program is.

                          Don't use anti-virus in carpc like many other have said. It just resource hog regardless of which program you use. Keep that in mind and surf the web on trusted site and you don't have to worry about having virus. Having a carpc running for almost 4 years, I have no problem with virus. Again, the only time I hook up to the net is to check weather and gas or a quick look at google/yahoo maps/address for POI that I have hard time with iG or S&T.
                          Like Guino, all beta I release, I use upx to compress the file. a 2.xmb file compress down to 6xxKb saving a lot of bandwidth.

                            I use avast on the home PC, "my porn downloader" and nothing in the car. The car doesnt get too much internet use so AV is not a need. And anything that goes in the car runs through the home PC and avast first.
