Guys the way i look at it is there is NOOOOO point of even using the cleaner if you aint gonna have tc active or tc monitor in the background as tcmonitor will detect any weird things going on with the system as it scans everything that is always running as to writing to the registry.

taken from the help file

"TCActive! is a program that can catch trojans before they load and do any damage to your system."

"The TCMonitor utility will watch important registry keys and files"

hi crow im not exactly sure how many resources it takes but its well worth the extra protection. I run them and nav2002 and 2 firewalls in xp and game sstill run smooth as can be and have no problems whatsoever any place else.

Hi

I will go with Hammy here, I have TC running in the background and it doesn't seam to make any difference to my comp.

I run benchtests, for my site and my own ammusement, on a regular basis and TC doesn't make any difference to these at all.

hi m8 im using both modes for the cleaner
there is no slow down or conflict up to now
you got to be carefull on the net
as when u are at some warez sites
it will try and write over your reg
so worth keeping in both modes i think


backup2k1(the name u can trust)


ps

if u want added security run two firewalls rather then one
then do the leak test and see what wins
but zone alarm and nortons and tiny firewall
pass the test with flying colours
and does not send no details out



here tiny link for ya
