Virus scanning software by McAfee, Sourcenet, Sonic Wall, Be in charge Anti-Virus, both give error messages, or crash the computer.

Most scanners plus Umax scanners may not work and give error messages, or incessantly re-boot the computer.

Some of the skin texture of Ebay Toolbar will cease to function. Users of Ebay's Enhanced Conjure up Advantage are sheltered out.
