Hi everyone,
Can someone please advise me if it is wise to run a spyware program alongside my Av? I have Mcafee internet security sweet which has it's own spyware tool inbuilt but just wondering if it was possible or wise to run another seperate, such as Spyware doctor also.

No, it isn't wise to run a spyware program alongside your AV.

It is, however, perfectly wise to run an anti-spyware program alongside your AV and even alongside Mcafee internet security sweet (sic).

You noticed a mistake Clapton is God. (I had a little chuckle at my poor Question which you gratefully rectified) Many thanks for your help.

Sorry but there is no point running another anti spyware program in realtime with Mcafee. But definitely use one as an on demand scanner.
