Never did in my case. However, I removed it after only a few days use in favour of SUPERAntiSpyware.

Do you have the paid version of Superantispy as this does not offer realtime protection under the free version.

I use Spywareterminator on 2 machines with no problems to date.

No with regard to the pay version.

I just got a bit fed up with Sypware Terminator's Microsoft AntiSpyware emulation of needing every installation or slight change to be Allowed or Refused...:-)

I don't install programs, applications or whatever for other than a good reason.

I agree Stu,Spywareterminator can be a little tedious just like Winpatrol with its allow and deny procedure..however i do find it handy and monitors your system changes,especially if you try various piece's of software etc.

The shield part of Spyware Terminator is highly configurable, it can indeed be a bit tedious when installing new software, particularly if you have all the check boxes ticked. But a bit of experimentation should get to a balance that suits a user.
Me I've ticked everything and put up with the notification pop ups.
As to clashes, no never had any problems with it and Defender, Spybot or SuperAtnispyware. Though most of those have been removed as I got more confident in ST.
