Does Spyware conflict with AV Software

By bscotti ·
Hi There,

Can anyone tell me if they use a spyware software in addition to running Symantec's AV software. If so do you have any problems as a result of having NAV scanning consistently with the Spyware software running as well? If not what spyware software are you using?

I was told that I should not run the two together.

Thanks in advance

The Spyware tools that I have used (Adaware and Spybot Search and Destroy)do not have an "active" component that runs at Startup. Instead you have to do a manual scan, similar to how virus scanners used to work many years ago.

I've never seen a conflict.
