After reading the section in this months issue of PC Advisor reference "Spyware stoppers" it has made me even more aware of the everyday threat we are prone to being connected to the www.I am currently using Ad-aware se personal and Aluria Spyware eliminator.After viewing the results and seeing that Spyware eliminator came in a very dissapointing 8th place, I would like to know if I could install the excellent Counterspy + Spybot Search and Destroy, but! also keep Spyware eliminator because of it's quote " Unique blacklist of offending sites & Activex controls".Is there information about any conflicts between these programs working in unison? I am currently using WXP Home with SP1.

Joeyace,

It would not be a problem running multi programs of these kind.

I myself run Adaware, Spybot S&D, and spywareblaster.

To avoid conflicts the rule is:-

1 firewall

1 Antivirus program

and as many spyware detectors as you wish

AVG or any free AV, any old firewall (free no point in paying), Ccleaner and MS Antispy are all you will ever need.
