On loading the upgrade to 2007 I was prompted that there was a clash with PC Tools Spyware Doctor and Skybot. I installed anyway and for now Spyware Doctor and NIS 2007 seem to cohabit OK I have not wiped Skybot either. Now that NIS declares as antispyware should I still subscribe to Spyware Dr? Emailed PC tools for a response - totally useless
I noticed this also in a trial of 2007 and beta version. You would be better doing what it says to avoid further mishaps and if you emailed Symantec or some other body they would probably say why do you need other programs if you have Norton.
I think that Spyware Doctor is a real time/full time anti virus not just a scanner for occasional use. If that is the case you are running a serious risk of a sysyem crash. Only one should be used at a time.
Don,t Think spyware Doctor is an anti- virus program,Don't see why both cant run at the same time, I use AVG Anti-virus, And use Spyware Doctor as a back up.Sometime's you might get a little bit of conflict between them, But it is normally fixed with the next download,Just leave Spyware Doctor Switched off, And just run it once or twice a week,Thats what i do, I personally would keep S/Doc. Great for finding things that others don,t.One of my favourite's.
