Anti-Virus Programs

There are many Anti-virus programs that inspect the application’s version information to see if it has changed. If there is a difference then confirmation is required if the program will be allowed to run. Sometimes the user does not see this request and hence the program is permanently banned from accessing the network. This technique is used by A/V programs to prevent system components, or other applications, from being spoofed by a Trojan/virus.

It is beyond the scope of this text to explain how to adjust every Anti-virus/Firewall application but will attempt to describe in general terms what to look for. Please consult your product’s documentation for a more detailed explanation.

Here are some places to look in order to find your product’s control-panel program:

Start > All Programs > {A/V name}

Start > Control Panel > {A/V name}

Windows System Tray (The system tray is located in the Windows Taskbar, usually at the bottom right corner next to the clock). Typically right-click on the icon to access a menu or double-left-click to start the program.

Once you start the program, find the advanced settings for either Applications or Internet. Look for any/all entries of Ventrilo and remove them. While here you can re-enter Ventrilo into the list. There should be an option to “Add” a program to the list by clicking a “Browse” button. The default path for Ventrilo is C:\PROGRAM FILES\VENTRILO (your harddrive letter may be different).
