you can try adding them one at a time and if the performance of the machine starts slowing down you will want to uninstall the last one you just installed

Glad to hear everything is working for you

Hi don77,
i downloaded n installed IE-spyad..all was fine till then but when i tried i tried ad-aware 2007 after a while my windows live-one care gave the warning to take immediate action (ie to uninstall ad-aware ) because it may interfere with it and not work properly and my pc is at risk...I belive it will say the same foe the other anti-spyware programs u mentioned like syware blaster etc...Is there any other alternative to make my pc more secure....???
