Hello everyone,

I have a question pertaining to a possible conflict. I know that you can have layers of antispyware, which is a good thing,running on your PC. Now what if two of these programs run active protection, like let's say Spysweeper and Counterspy. Would they not be in conflict with one another...running their active services?

Any thoughts?

Thanks.

Yes they would. You should have only one anti-spywareprogram running with real time protection enabled.

Thanks Thunderbird1988, I did some more research on this topic. My formed opinion on this matter has always

been to run only one active anti-spyware but with the scanning options of others.

Thanks for your input.
