The issue of NAV. Believe what you want, the experienced Mods over at COU which i will include the link for use a variety of A/V proggys such as Kapersky, AVAST etc. and surprisingly yes, even NAV. The Mods comments are always use what suits your needs and works successfully for you. BTW there are not multiple A/V proggy's in use on my notebook, the other programs deal with spyware, trojans, adware etc. potential issues.
I have only one A/V proggy.
And yes i know that NAV is a bloated proggy, but it has worked in our notebooks at work very well as a component of our Norton Systemworks Premier 2005 and ( the older versions of Norton Systemworks) which we used. We now have the 2005 version for when we do incremental Backups of our work notebooks and that is via Ghost. The only other proggy besides this and NAV that is enabled is One Button check which we use as well.
Our in house Techie and management require us to use the Systemworks and we have been functioning fine with no infected computers, no crashes and of course i mentioned the other security software that is recommended to use by the Calendar of Updates forum and they have not caused any problems, If you look at their site you will see Mods and members that use many security proggys at once and there is constant posts in the forums discussing compatabilities and for the ones i use there are no issues.
Of course as mentioned earlier I close down all proggy's before doing Backups, just so that is clear and I also do a defrag.
This COU forum is one that my colleagues and I visit daily before we even commence work so that we know if there are updates for our proggys.
This is one of the best organized security forums with experienced Mods that can address issues posted regarding security proggys. Since I am a professional and rely on my notebook for work purposes it is essential that I update my security and scan on a regular basis, something that our in house Techie keeps an eye on.
I was not tampering with PAL or NTSC, i was looking at the folders that are contained in Clone DVD as there was a sample in an earlier posters dialogue of what folders exist on his computer for Clone DVD. I wanted to clear up that matter. I am a Noob to DVD burning, however I am not one to start tampering with programs of any sort. I ask the experienced like yourselves in this forum and appreciate greatly the comments.
I finally uninstalled Clone DVD and when it asked if i wanted to save my Registration, i of course indicated yes. I did a Reg Supreme clean of my registry and did a Fresh reinstall.
The proggy is running fine now. I did 8 backups and no recurrence of the issue that i posted.
What I wanted to ask about in relation to any reinstall at a later date if necessary and lets just say I have a crash which I am fully aware can happen, however over the years has not occurred to any of my colleagues and of course myself included. But that dark day could come.
i am the only one doing dvd backups on my notebook and so I would like to know how to "Open" my license key if required at a subsequent date.
I saved both the Any DVD and Clone DVD license keys as recommended when you purchase the proggy's, and so i decided to see yesterday what was involved in the process for the future and neither license keys would open and said that this was because it did not know what program was used to create them.
Does anyone know what program was used to create these license keys as they certainly won't open for me now and this would be critical for any future problems. ( just in the event that there is a problem with my Ghost image). I would like to check out the "saved licence" keys.
I should also say, that I did a reinstall of 1 Click DVD copy after my 3 first backups to see what would happen and there were no issues in doing the other 5 backups with Clone DVD.
So i am wondering if some sort of corruption may have occurred. it does seem to me that i did an update of Clone DVD recently.
I don't do backups regularly and thus don't recall when I did the update of the Clone DVD , as with Any DVD it was done over top of the existing proggy; which I gathered from what I have read in this forum can be done.
Is this the recommended way to update or not??
I thankyou for your responses and look forward to comments on these other related queries. Clone DVD as i said did all 8 backups fine and so i believe that aspect is resolved, however i would really appreciate comments on the above queries that i have.
Again I thank the posters that replied and find this a forum with a wealth of experienced knowledge.
And yes, I should say that I did go through the Tutorials on Any DVD and Clone DVD, I always do that if there are any available tutorials on any new proggy's that I install.
That is one of the major reasons that I belong also to Bleeping Computer Forums as they have quality tutorials on security proggy's and also discuss compatability issues.
Cheers with thanks
