Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go. I rely on AdAware and Spybot for malware, and Norton Anti Virus for virus protection. I don't have any experience with Norton Spyware, but suspect it is similar to AdAware. When I run AdAware, I get rid of the files it finds, delete! I have never had a problem because I did that. AdAware updates their file definitions regularly. I would hope Norton does the same. I would not expect you should have problems having both on your system. AdAware is free, works great. I bet you had to pay for Norton. By "non-viral threat" they probably mean all threats other than virus, like tracking cookies and little programs that phone home with data to get you spammed, etc. Check their "help" file for their official deffinition of that term.
