vista and spybot :compatible?

  emsi 14:28 04 Nov 2007

I have a new pc that runs on vista, so I already have defender. However I wanted to download spybot search and destroy too as I understand it's better to have 2 softwares to catch all bugs..
My first Q. is : is Spybot compatible with vista
2nd Q: is Spybot search and destroy the same as Spyware bot? I used to have Spybot S&D on my old pc and it was very good and completely free., but I cannot find it now to download from the net: every time I do a search I find Spyware bot and when I downloaded this one it wouldn't destroy the 39(!!!) parasites it found, unless I registered and paid $9.95 or more! Can anyone help clear this confusing matter? many thanks. emsi

Spybot s&d works fine on Vista. Just remember to right click icon and run as administrator otherwise it won't immunize. Home link;click here

Suggest you download the lates beta from here; click here as it's cured a few niggles.
