Spyware and antivirus

  Astrid 08:52 04 Jun 2009

I run Windows XP Home and have Kaspersky Internet Security installed. On running through some documents I see that I paid for Counterspy a few years ago but don't run it. Is there any advantage to be gained in running antispyware as well as a good antivirus such as Kaspersky? I think I discontinued using Counterspy because of a possible incompatibility between the two. Or is it possible Kaspersky doesn't pick up spyware as well as a dedicated programme such as Counterspy?

although you have one of the best internet security suites i would download malwarebytes free and superantispyware and use them just as scanners if you did get infectedclick here

It's certainly advisable to run good antispyware package, as well as your KIS. I run the same ones as smackheadz.
