i've been using norton with no problems for a while now, but decided to try spy doctor aswell, is it a bad idea to have both running or would norton on its own be enough? please advise.
pureepaul,as long as you are only running one anti-virus program, you can run as many anti-spyware/malware programs as you like.
thanks joe r, so even though the spyware doc also has anti-virus, because its mainly a spyware jobby it shouldn't cause conflicts,or is that classed as anti virus program??
You should only run one anti-virus product. More than one will cause system instabilities and lock-ups. Use Nortons anti-virus programme and PC Tools Spyware Doctor version without the Anti-Virus programme.
Spyware Doctor does not have an anti-virus.Its a spyware program.Not unless they have changed it recently.Now to have both running at the same time may slow your computer down a lot.Especially if you have programed both to run at start up.
They did change it recently and now you can purchase Spyware Doctor with Anti-Virus. I use only the stand alone product and Kaspersky for I-net security needs
is suspected of putting false positives on your PC to persuade you to buy it's product.It certainly did to me when I tried it's Trial Download.
To be honest I cannot remember the last time my antispyware scanners picked up anything other than tracking cookies. I would consider looking at waht sort of sites you visit, and making an informed dcision about what protection you need. However I would always start with a router for its FW capabilities.
Thanks for the up-date of Spyware Doctor also having Anti-Virus on it.I new that they had a free version of anti-virus so they must have amalgamated it now with their Spyware.
thanks for all the advice, have turned off the anti-virus part of the dr. and feel much better about use. thanks.
