Vista norton 360 & other spyware programs

  LANDCRUISER 16:26 21 Nov 2007

will the other spyware programs like adaware,spybot ect work ok with norton 360 & vista thanks in advance for any help on this

They should although some incompatibilities have been reported.

The key is to choose scanners like the ones you have selected but not any programs which involve real time/full time protection like AVG or Avast AV.

another very good antispyware program,
is called SuperAntiSpyware
a lot of good reviews on this product.

SuperAntiSpyware (free editon)
It is a on demand scanner.

If your going to run Norton 360 then theres no point or benefit in installing other anti-Virus\antispyware,and they may conflict with one-another...plenty of imfo. on the web.

hi jakimo you say its not worth running other spyware program as it might conflict with 360 but i ran 360 all was ok,then i ran adaware & it came up with 68 problems,which one do i believe to be right

  jakimo 02:13 27 Nov 2007

It is a general rule that running two or more security software programs all doing the same job very often conflict with each other,this is not my opinion but a fact,there is plenty of information on the web to support this

...if after running adawar or similar with Norton 360 up and running there is no way you can be sure 68 infections are a true statement,because these programs can conflict with each other, removing those so-called problems can possibly be removing files required by other programs
