Is it OK to have more than one programme to help against phishing?

Has anyone used the phishing tool frm COMODO?

1 program and one dollop of common sense is enough.
Not tried the Comodo tool myself.

it is fine to run more than one antiphishing program at once but be aware that it will effect system performance i personally have not seen any reports of conflicts.

Comodo is OK but very limited in that it only gives positive results for commercial sites (mainly USA) signed up to a particular verification scheme. If it gives the all clear then the site is pretty convincingly clear, but it has whacking great holes in the coverage as a load of perfectly respectable sites using a different scheme don't register.
Interesting, but has a way to go before it can be truly useful, particularly in the UK.

Common sense will serve you much better.

Many thanks all for your opinions.

Common sense is indeed the main thing.

Wishing you all a healthy and prosperous New Year.
