i am running ad-aware 2007 plus and can update to 2008 plus version which now has an anti-virus element. anybody know if its ok to run the new 2008 plus version and my anti virus nod32 programme together, as i understand two anti virus progs. running together can cause problems.
Hi, I still don't understand it because Ad aware only runs when you start it for a scan, and theav engine is only shown in the scan settings.Ad Watch runs real time but has no AV. I don't think it can possibly clash with another AV
I can't really comment on it as I have not used Ad-Aware for about 5 years.Will it cause problems.[possibly] Just like AVG8 is at the moment.But I suppose we will have to get used to New programs as they are getting more sophisticated in finding problems.Maybe the days of just having 1 Anti-virus program may be on it's way out,And security Suites taking over,I prefer just having them singularly rather in packages.I had Norton Internet Security for a few years and that put me off.I liked AVG the way it was but I suppose we have to get used to new versions.If there is going to be any complications with Ad-aware anti-virus I am sure we will be one of the first to hear about it.
Hmm, I think I was at first confused by brigtoo's post - have re-read and checked my own Ad-Aware 2008, there is no Anti-Virus in Ad-Aware 2008, so it is perfectly safe to run Ad-Aware 2008 and any Anti-virus of your choice. I use the free AVG8, which I think is where my confusion arouse at the start!
