Spybot.

I have on my computer; Spywareblaster, NAV and Ad-aware 6.0.

Have just been reading about the benefits of Spybot and was wondering if I should install it, replacing Spywareblaster, or can they both work in conjunction with each other, and what are the main differences, if any, between the two?

I'm using Windows XP Home.

Cheers.

they work really well, and use different methods to keep your machine free of problems - recommended!

Spybot is very similar to ad-aware,and specifically suggests you run Spywareblaster at the same time.
Adaware & Spybot are scanners they pick up spyware and some trojans and then delete them. Spywareblaster is a preventative measure that stops a lot of spy/adware being installed in the first place.
