Hi,

I already have AOL Spyware on my computer. Is it OK to download & run Ad-Aware spyware?

Thanks,

Actually they are anti-spyware products, not spyware.
And yes it is ok.
In my opinion you should have at least 2-3 spyware scanners,
AT LEAST one spyware prevention program,
and also basic firewall/Anti-virus software.
