Ewido click here

Don't install another real-time virus scanner - it will conflict with Norton.

You also want to download Spyware Blaster,It runs in the background, Just check every 10 days or so for updates.

"Don't install another real-time virus scanner - it will conflict with Norton."

Is good advice and to do so is one of the best ways to get a system crash. I think Win Defender does for example and you might want to look carefully at Spyware Blaster in view of the comment that it runs in the background.

VoG™ 's recommendations with your current set up are all and more than you shopuld need.

Actually, Spywareblaster does NOT run in the background. You just need to run it and it sets kill bits in the registry to stop spyware from installing. Then close it. Check for updates every couple of weeks.

Well yes that is what I thought but I turned to buteman's comments since I assume he uses it.
