I decided to run a check on my PC today and run Ad aware, Spybot, and my Norton AV. when running, ALL three crashed my computer half way through the system check. I did another restart of Ad aware and it completed the check OK (nothing found), but Spybot crashed again.
I haven't tried Norton again, but for what reason could this happen, hope someone has an answer.
Apart from this, my PC seems to be running OK???
OS XP home.

Did you run them all at the same time when the crash happened?

No!! but how could you do that anyway??
I have de-installed Spybot and run Norton again, this time it completed its search without problems. I am still no wiser. Oh Hum!!

I found that if I had Adaware open while I was running Spybot, it hung. Although not vice-versa.

There could be a similar problem with your AV.
