    I am with Toster, DO NOT USE ANY KIND OF VIRUS PROTECTION IN YOUR CAR! Makes no sense, are you really going to get a virus from listening to music and using your GPS? And as long as your not surfing the web for anything that will give you a virus, you won't need it!

    WORD!

    Let me first state that I don't use antivirus software on my carpc, as it's not needed. However my home computer has a copy of Road Runner 12/2007 and Avast alerts this as a virus. How can I verify it's really not infected? Why would antivirus software produce a false positive?

    Compression or packing mechanisms for executables generate false positives, though I'm not sure why. It's a common problem among many antivirus softwares.

    There is any free antivirus I can use in the car with Road Runner??

    I have internet and I surf the web in the car so I need an antivirus.

    I tried with Avast and AVG and both says that Road Runner is a virus... so I can not use them, ¿which antivirus could I use?

    You can't tell AVG to ignore roadrunner? I'll have to check that out.

    Other option would be to decompress the exe and see if it no longer picks it up as a virus.

    I tried to tell to Avast! to ignore the roadrunner.exe, but it only ignore the file in a scan.

    The resident module is the one that gives the problems, because you can no tell it to ignore files.

    With AVG I have not found any option to ignore files...

    FYI - In AVG you can "exclude" the path where roadrunner.exe is. Open the resident shield module and you will see the option to exclude. It's still not ideal thou' cause you have to exclude every possible path that you might download and/or store the .exe

    Also, excluding the path puts you in danger of contracting a virus cause NONE of the files in that path are scanned.

    Thanks treetop777, you are right!!

    I had the 7.5 version of AVG and with that version (free) you can not exclude paths.
    However, I downloaded the new version (8.0 free) and now I can exclude the road runner path.

    Thanks!!

    Disgusted !!!

    Hi All,

    I'm sorry if this reply comes across a little abrupt but I never have been one for putting thigs nicely -

    I have used AVG for years and I have recently found, especially since installing Version 8, that it now slows down your PC way too much, especially on a small system like my car PC. Grissoft have gone over the top with protection now. Mcafee amd Norton did this years ago and tons of people left them because of it.

    I now recommend all my friends and family to use AVAST, as this doesn't have the same problem. (YET!)

    Avast quarrantines Road runner and I haven't found a way round it yet, I love Road runner to pieces BUT I am not leaving my Car PC open to virusses by not having antivirus software installed.

    I find it frustrating and disappointing that Guino aren't changing their software so that antivirus software doesn't block it or Avast aren't interested in helping use resolve this issue.

    I use my car PC for email AND surfing sometimes and if I didn't have this facility then I might as well dump Road runner for a DVD head unit!

    Has anyone got a solution without downgrading versions or are we ALL sticking our heads in the sand here???

    Sorry again for the bluntness.

    Paul
