Hi,

I currently have changed to AVG, Malwarebytes, and Super Anti-Spyware for my security. I used to use SpybotSD and Ad-Aware. Can I use Spybot with superanti-spyware? I really like how spybot watches the registry and all.

Also, what I'm confused on is, do they both run real time protection or do I just not have spybot run its real time in ...can I do that? Is that the "Immunize" part of spybot?

Just seeing what the best way is.

Do I just use Super Anti and not add anything else?

I hope you see what I'm getting at...thanks,

Spybot:
The Resident TeaTimer is a tool of Spybot-S&D which perpetually monitors the processes called/initiated. It immediately detects known malicious processes wanting to start and terminates them giving you some options, how to deal with this process in the future. You can set TeaTimer to:

* be informed, when the process tries to start again
* automatically kill the process
* or generally allow the process to run

So this is something that is an "active" monitor program. It, however, is not providing actual malware protection. Spybot search and destroy is a passive scanning program.

Personally, if you going to go with something like Super, then I wouldn't use tea timer. You can install Spybot without tea timer.

Ok thanks,

So, how do I install it without tea timer? Do I do that by selecting custom install instead of standard install or something? Is tea timer the same thing as "Immunize" function?

If not, should I still should do the immunize thing then?

Thanks,

Exactly, or you can also simply disable it: http://www.malwarehe...t-teatimer.html

Ok thanks,

So what I'm going to have on my computers is AVG, Malwarebytes, Super Anti-Spyware, and SpybotSD without the teatimer.

That is all OK then?

Should I add anything else...or is that good.

Could I add anything else?

Thanks,
