Until I disabled my PANDA anti virus.... For the least three days I have been able to get on the net but NOT send e-mail due to a Pavproxy error.
What is a proxy and I guess in this case it is a Pandaproxy but what causes the malfunction.....I have had Panda since August last year with no problems till 3 days ago.
I have contacted Panda yet no reply so I thought if I through it to Press F1 I might be open to answers sooner.....I am using 98SE and not XP where this error is more prevalent according to GOOGLE.

try uninstalling then reinstall also check your firewall if you have one

Thanks Kiwi.......I have uninstalled and downloaded again and all appears to be O K.....I have also done a separate virus scan apart from Panda and it was clean too....the computer has always indicated no virus but when you go and look up pavproxy in a search engine you get also known as Trojan.Win32.KKiller {KAV}but on scans there is NO VIRUS????
CAN ANY ONE EXPLAIN?
I DO NOT USE A firewall BUT SHOULD I?

I use zonealarm pro and pestpatrol ,spyware blaster plus a few other tools myself being on cable its wise to have all the protection you can obtain , also download Spybot ad-aware and do a search for anything on you HDD

I am always mindful that extra duplicate programs MAY decrease my Performance........What is the general thinking on this matter and what are the FACTS......

Panda runs full time but the others are only activated when actively scanning manually activated when I feel the need to do a intensive search mainly for spyware trojans etc .
I too am mindful of wasting resources slowing down my PC etc

I Have tried or used most utilities over the last few years including norton's which can use up a lot of system resources hence the move to panda I also prefer Fix-It to Norton utils again for the same reason

this page explains exactly what Trojan.Win32.KKiller [KAV]
does and is quite interesting as well always scan any small exe files downloaded if you need any more advice or help you are welcome to contact me have most of my utils on cd somewhere
