I've seen Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware highly recommended on this forum and I have a question, do they play well with installed security solutions like F-Secure Internet Security and Kaspersky Internet Security? I would like to use these programs as a belt and braces approach, but only if they don't conflict with my F-Secure installation.
You can have as many malware removal programs running as you like (and the more the merrier although some will report others as malware!!!) - they do not conflict with each other or antivirus/internet security software. Both mentioned programs are very good. Remember though that the free Malwarebytes doesn't automatically update or scan - you have to do these manually.
If programs like F-Secure Internet Security and Kaspersky Internet Security? And others stopped everything you would not need programs the Likes of Malwarebytes and Superantispyware.Now whether there is any conflict between them I do not know.
Contrary to skidd there can be conflicts. There is a anti-virus suite that doesn't like Spybot for example (can't remember which one for the moment but either BitDefender or Mcafee). I run Malwarebytes with Kaspersky with no problems but it hasn't found anything that Kaspersky hasn't already dealt with and I have has a few false positives from it.
I've tried Spybot S&D on my Vista machine and had to uninstall it as it disabled the preview function in explorer, luckily I spotted it right away otherwise I would have been wondering why preview stopped working. That's part of the reason why I asked the question, the other is because I've already asked F-Secure and they advised against the installation of any other virus/malware checkers, but then they've a vested interest in giving that advice.
I'm just keen to know if anyone has had a conflict with their installed software before I decide to install. I already use SpywareBlaster with no problems, but as far as I'm aware it just blocks known bad Internet sites.
