SPYBOT INCOMPATIBLE WARNING

Spybot has come up with a warning message that it may cause conflicts with Lavasoft Adware.

Have run both for some time and first time this message has come up.

I thought running various spyware programmes was ok?

Any advice please?

i would keep spybot its the better of the two.

I think this has happened before. Can you post the exact message? If I remember the last time one detected the other as malware! You could ignore this and on te first scan check carefully and tell the program to ignore in future.

Strangely I had the situation where A-Squared detected SpyBot as a potential problem - I did as Taff™ suggests, and it was eventually resolved with updates to the program

Dont worry about it. It is only letting you know that Adaware will scan S&D archives and may report spyware that is there.
It is perfectly ok to run both programmes.

I run both with no trouble after the initial warning.
