Skype plugin for Firefox
This plugin will make you unable to perform cut-paste in the translation grid, by interfering with the clipboard.
Spyware Doctor blocks access to the setting files of MemoQ, and although MemoQ can run while Spyware Doctor is enabled, it may be unable to write certain files to disk.
Panda security software
You probably have to disable Panda security software [temporarily] if you want to work with MemoQ. Similar problems will arise if working with other security software with rigid firewalls. This problem is therefore not only related to Panda Software.
NOD32 security software
The MemoQ server does not work together with NOD32 if IMON is enabled.
To disable IMON:
Please go to NOD32 Control Center (down by the clock) > IMON > Quit. Now a reboot is necessary.
After rebooting, the icon should be gray.
ESET support response to Kilgray developers:
The next version of NOD32 will be sans IMON. It's being totally eliminated from the program for this very reason.
In 1992, when NOD32 was introduced, very few programs operated at the Winsock level. Today, in addition to Google and Microsoft, 100's of other developers are creating software in this manner. That would be fine, except for the fact that any app that operates here needs the top spot in the stack, and only one program can have it.
As it is now, it can't be enabled at all on a server.
IMON was just the first layer of defense, a supplement. The strengths of NOD32 are AMON, which scans every file that performs an action, as it performs that action and the advanced heuristics which is stopping 90%+ of all new threats, before a definition is even written.
By quitting IMON now, you'll not only allow both programs to operate together, but you'll also lose no coverage.
