Antivirus software vs memoQ
Thread poster: MaxOO

Sep 30, 2016

Hello, everyone

It's been made clear (by several posts in this forum, including Kilgray's response to my question) that the performance (speediness) of memoQ is sometimes affected by antivirus software.

As I haven't tried all those commercially available programs, I'm interested in knowing about other users' "rules of thumb" on which AV software seems to be not working comfortably in conjunction with memoQ.

I'm using ESET, and it's perfectly Okay.

How about other products?

How about the balance between the product's power to protect, and interference with memoQ?

Another one for ESET Oct 1, 2016

In our office we all have ESET -- even the server on which memoQ Server runs -- and it works beautifully.

Comodo Internet Security (CIS) Oct 1, 2016

Not long ago I finished several translations via MemoQ and had no prob with CIS at all.

- Hardware? (AC-powered notebook i5/some Nvidia/4GB RAM/SSD 240GB for OS and HDD 750GB@7200 for software)
- Which OS? (W8.1 x64)
- MemoQ version? (recent translator free edition)
- Doc type? (mixed)
- Doc/TM size had issues? (up to 200 pages with diagrams/some 25K TU's with real-time sharing via LT)
- AV settings? (default)
. . .
No speed issues encountered, so there're too many questions for troubleshooting.


Thanks! Oct 3, 2016

Hi, all

Thank you for your feedback!

I was expecting that there might be one or more AV programs that adversely affect the performance (especially the speediness) of memoQ.

But according to your posts, I think I should look into other elements of software and/or hardware should I have a slowness issue.
