I've got five anti-spyware programs on my computer: Ad-Aware, Microsoft Antispyware, SpyBot- S&D, Spyware Doctor, and I just installed Spyware Blaster. Is this to many programs, do I need all of them?
Thanks, 33125416

Those programs are fine, however, I have faired well using just MS Antispyware, Spybot, and HijackThis. It's boring when you don't have any baddies to remove. :sayno:

So, yeah, you should be fine as long as you watch what you download.

Yeah, eventually the only things I would find were tracking cookies. For a while I thought all the programs might be missing something, but there's just no spyware there. I hope....

I've been reading through some posts on TSF, and a lot dealing with security say you have to be in safe mode to remove spyware and infected files. Do I need to do this? I know how, but I've never done it before.

Sometimes it is just a matter of personal preference. When you are in Safe Mode, there is less chance of spyware/viruses running. This means you should be able to remove them without much problem.
