Spywareblaster or Windows Defender

  East Stander 09:17 29 Jul 2006

Sorry folks but yet another question for advice about spyware prevention. I use Ad-aware and Spybot for weekly scans. For free prevention tools which of the two in the title would you recommend using? Or can you use both without creating conflicts?

Thanks for any advice.

SpywareBlaster is a "blocker"

Defender is a "real time scanner"

I use both with Ewido as a weekly scanner and never have any problems.

Remember to keep them updated, defender updates via windows update and will only woek on XP machines not win 9x / ME / 2000
