They should be compatible, though ewido may stop updating in the future

ewido anti-spyware 4.0 has been replaced by AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 and isn't available for sale and download anymore (under the old name). Instead, please try our new, highly improved version:

ewido anti-spyware 4.0 will now continue under the new product name AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5. AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 contains the same ewido technology, but with some further enhanced features:

Highly improved cleaning
Lower resource usage
Additional languages supported

All current licenses for ewido anti-spyware 4.0 will continue to be valid, and users can change over to the new AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5

Ewido is was bought by AVG and is now known as AVG AntiSpyware. AVG is just an antivirus (doesn't cover most spyware), so I recommend that you run both AVG and AVG AntiSpyware.

Edit: Keith beat me to it :whistling:
