Adware or spybot???

  misters 21:56 22 Sep 03

Hi iwas just wondering what people on this forum recommend i keep Adware or Spybot. I gather that the two do the same thing or do they not sure if not then what is the difference?
Thanx in advance.

Use Both - one at a time. What one might miss the other may pick up.

Yup, both.

  obbit 22:05 22 Sep 03

ditto. use both

  TommyRed 22:08 22 Sep 03

Yeah, I use both and as Jester2K II says after I run one (usually Spybot) the other one nearly always picks up something extra. TR

Another one you want to use is SpywareBlaster click here but you don't have to do anything with it after it's installed, other than checking for updates every so often.

Yep agree. Both will work quite happy together, so use both.But do not forget, to keep the updates checked on a regular basis.

I use both as well. However you will get a message when using Spybot that you have AdAware installed as well. It is nothing to worry about.

Really?? Where?? When??

  powerless 23:09 22 Sep 03

When you install it.

It may detect Adaware quarantined items.

Jester - If you launch spybot and go into settings > settings there's an option display compatability warnings. If you check this, close then launch again you'll get the warning about ad-aware. You can then opt not to dispaly this warning again ;-))
