Microsoft Antspyware Beta 1

  mick 47 21:06 27 Feb 2005

Dear Colleagues

I recntly downloaded this software and then updated it on the Internet. I now find Spybot and Adaware SE will not run and the whole system has become unstable. Has anyone else expierienced this - or should I just get rid of it. I am now worried that it has done some damage to my computer. Any advice would be appreciated.

I currently have Spybot S & D, Ad-Aware SE and Microsoft Antispyware Beta all loaded on my p.c. (and use them regularly). I also know of many others who are in this position and with no problems. There is no reason whatsoever for the programs to clash under normal circumstances. If you have a problem I'd suggest that another factor is involved that you may not be aware of. The only one of the above which is a running item is the MS application. The other two are ad hoc scanners. Maybe someone else will come up with a useful suggestion, but my initial reaction is that we are missing a vital piece of the jigsaw.

Thank you both for your replies. I have removed it and all is running fine. I think I will stick with the trusted ADWARE,SPYBOT and SPYWARE BLASTER

Many thanks
