I use McAfee and an update a few weeks ago warned me of the dire consequences of having Spybot. I duly uninstalled Spybot, updated McAfee then reinstalled Spybot.

Everything is still working as it should.

If VoG's post doesn't appeal, there are a few out there. Ewido and ad-aware are, I've been told, quite good.

Probably a bit of a scare tactic such as ZA not "recognising/monitoring" AV programs such as Avast! even though both work OK together - in any case I use both Search and Destroy and AdAware Personal SE as one often finds something that the other doesn't pick up.

nikef, I have been running NIS 2007 and Sbybot for a month with no problems. However it is not wise to allow both to run a scan concurrently, it tends to fill the works with molasses.
