I have currently installed on my XP Prof. box:

Advanced System Optimizer 2
Ewido Security Suite
HijackThis 1.99.1 and Hijackthis 1.99.1 (other than spelling not sure why there are 2?)
Macafee VirusScan Enterprise
Microsoft Anti Spyware
Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer 2.0
SpyBot

I am told that I should install:

SpyWareBlaster
SpyWareGuard
IE/SpyAd
Replace Hosts file

Can anyone PLEASE tell me which apps are/aren't compatible so I can start cleaning house before installing the suggested apps?...OR steer me in the right direction of where to ask?

Any advise is much appriciated. Thanks!!! :tazz:

All those programs are ok to have. No problems running them side by side.

Any other questions?
