Hi everybody,
I am new here, so hi to all first, and i am hoping somebody could advise me on using some antivirus programs together as I have Microsofts Spyware and AVG, Adaware se, & Spyblaster, currently running on my machine now, is it safe to add WaltSides suggestions Trendmicro's Housecall, Spybot S&D, &
Coolwebshredder to my machine, or just leave it with the programs i have already got now ?
Thanks in advance,
Tuby

Hi Tuby
With the exeption of AVG, those tools you mentioned are spyware/malware tools and will not cause a problem running together.
A true anti-virus software, such as AVG, Norton, Mcaffee, should NOT be run together as they will detect each other. Stick with AVG and feel free to ad spybot and CWShredder. Housecall is actualy an online scan and this is safe also.
