At the moment I run SuperAntiSpyware once a week. I also have Spybot on my computer. Do I need both programs or could I ditch spybot? Or should I be using anymore programs?

Not all spyware is picked up by all anti-spyware programs. Many people (me included) run three or more to try and cover all bases. The number you use is up to you, but since you don`t have to have them all running all the time the overhead on processor/RAM can be minimal and you can then run them as and when you wish.

Thanks for that.
