Shut down Lansuite for AVG Update
  Posted by  Ken List  on Tuesday, March 18, 2003 at 9:29:50 AM (EST)
I am running AVG virus s/w free edition. Before it can load new virus definitions, it asks me to close lansuite.exe. I have LS running as a service, and cannot stop it using the task manager or services control panel. Is there a way to bypass stopping lansuite, or is there a way to stop lansuite so my virus def. updates can install?

Create a shortcut on the desktop:

%windir%\system32\net.exe stop "602Pro LAN SUITE"

and another;

%windir%\system32\net.exe start "602Pro LAN SUITE"

The first will stop the service and the second will re-start the service. Did that answer your question?

Thanks, but it didn't work. While the Services Control Panel indicates that lansuits.exe is stopped after running the shortcut, it still shows up in Task Manager. When I try to end process there I'm told "Unable to Terminate Process.The operations could not be completed. Access is denied". AVG also still thinks lansuits.exe is running (so does taskmgr, for that matter). A side note is that AVG is listed as a dependency for LS in the system control panel. Is this creating a problem? Thanks.

From what I understand, LS uses AVG's engine and virus db to check for viruses. It kind of makes sense that it can't update the db while a program using that database is running.

Someone more familiar with scripting than I can probably figure something out for you, but for the time being, I just close LS down when I do updates manually.

Oops. Forgot to tell you. You need to change the service to manual. Then copy the start shartcut into your startup group so that the sevice start every time you start your computer.

Now you should be able to turn it on and off from your desktop. If not, let me know.

Honestly, English is my first language.

Anyway, Change the service to manual and Apply the change. Copy the shortcut for starting the service into the startup group of your program menu.

BTW, you do not have to run the AVG service if you check for updates manually which generally a better idea anyway. Disable it and save some resources.

Thanks for the tips. I've got LS starting from the Startup group. I've disabled the auto update service for AVG. Now, if I can just remember to check for virus updates regularly....

IMHO create 3 shortcuts would be a good idea:
1. to stop LAN SUITE
2. to start AVG update
3. to start LAN SUITE
But I don't know how to do this 2.

Had the same trouble using AVG anti virus. Now use Norton which scanns all e-mails coing through port 25 and 110. Without any update problems using lansuite.

Hi,

If you are interested and Software602 Inc M'ment give me their blessing (permission) I will have a go at writing some code to:
Automate the server shutdown Antivirus update
Restart the server

No promises, but it may be possible?

I think that's a great idea. Please keep me posted.

I use a cron even from task scheduler:

startit.bat : net start lansuits
stopit.bat : net stop lansuits

I have teh AVG update for 2:00 AM and stopit running at 1:59, and startit running at 2:01 AM

Works GREAT on Win2K Pro (task scheduler is great)
