I wanted to know if my existing configuration is conflicting.

Right now I have AVG Anti-Spyware as well as the AVG Free Addition. They both are different types of protection software, but I just want to make sure.

I am currently installing Comodo Firewall after briefly searching the forums... =)

I always like to see more than one opinion on topics like this, but as far as I know, your configuration is just fine. You've covered three bases, Sypware, Virus, and firewall. Sounds good to me :whistling:

Okay, excellent, thanks for your opinion! I was thinking since they both have "active" scanners that they might conflict. But they are both made from AVG for different things... :whistling:

Right. If you have two active scanners which do the same thing, then they would conflict. For example, if you run AVG Free with McAfee, there will likely be issues. Because these programs do different things, I don't see an issue.
