avg 8 & adaware

I note that AVG 8 free includes anti-spyware. I also have adaware - but do I need both ? Thanks

Won't go wrong.Just keep it and run it occasionally.

you can use any number of anti-spyware type programs; the new bit of AVG is one such. They all tend to find different spyware, so as buteman says , run it occasionally and run adaware in the same way.

I found that AVG8 logs v. high CPU usage (from Resident Shield) when Adaware is scanning. Whilst some might argue that AVG is scanning the files as Adaware accesses them, AVG7.5 didn't "suffer" from this issue.
