MS AS Beta and SpywareBlaster = conflict?

  g40 20:17 16 May 2005

As well as having Ad-Aware and AVG i am also running MS Antispyware Beta and Spyware Blaster, i have read that running the two at the same time is bad for system resources as they both offer real-time scanning, havn't noticed any problems so far though, does anyone have anything to add to this, i was thinking of getting shot of MS AS Beta and just having Spyware Blaster and maybe Spybot S & D instead, (leaving AVG etc as they are), any comments appreciated.

I've been running both for months now, with no problems whatsoever.

No conflict.

SpywareBlaster works in a different way to AntiSpyware.

Although i do read PC Advisor and PC Pro, there are often very accurate pieces of information in other, less technical mags, e.g. "Web User", 12th-25th May '05. Page 51, suggests it might be a good idea to disable the real-time protection in one or 't other, claiming it wastes resources.

So i guess i will retain the status quo for now, at least until MS decide how much they are going to charge us for MS AS Non-Beta! But i also guess that that is another whole story (and subject for discussion) Cheers all, G
