Hi guys i got fed up with av8 so i uninstalled it and i am using Avira now.I also adaware 2008 plus malwarebytes anti malaware and ccleaner. Do you think thats enough? or should i add an antispyware? Thoughts please.
Adding more and more security and protection software, can be (in some cases) a problem ready and waiting to happen. One program might conflict with another, with the end results not actually achieving anything of worth.
On the particular computer I am using 6 anti programs at the moment: Avast, SunBelt, Spyware Terminator, CCleaner and Advanced Window Care 2 Personal. All are free, with regular updates, and the computer is running comfortable and fairly sweet.
You can have as many Spyware programs on your computer as you like so long as you do not have them running at the same time. I select "manual" download and scan and therefore run them only when I want them to run, one at a time. I put some time aside so I can run these programs individually. No problems doing it this way. Just have "Spyware Blaster" running in the background to stop spyware getting on your computer in the first place.
Never, Repeat, Never, have two Virus scanners on your computer at the same time as they will definitely clash and give you problems.
Some software can do both. I use Avast for my Virus protection and a veriety of other software for spyware checking and Register cleaning. I never use software which does both as I prefere independent software which I run myself when I want to run it and not setup to run automatically which could prove to be at an awkward time.
