Warning! Vipre forces to uninstall Spybot-S&D!

Quote:
The current version of Vipre Antivirus from Sunbelt Software is forcing to uninstall Spybot-S&D during their own installation process. But there are no known compatibility problems.
You can avoid the uninstall in their installation wizard by pressing "Next" instead of "Go to uninstall" or "Show me how". Then you will be asked "There are other Antivirus products still installed on your computer. Are you sure you want to continue?" There press "Yes", then Spybot-S&D will stay on your computer.

TBH, Spybot is a crap. It was a good product years ago but now they're quite behind.

Spybot is really a pain. I tested i long back never bothered to install it again. Hardly got any good review about it from anyone. We have lot of good programs why take a risk

Not sure about Vipre though. I haven't used it. So i can't make comment about it.

Spybot is really not a very good option for spyware protection or removal anymore.

Purposely infecting a Windows install in Virtualbox and scanning with different apps. It has a hard time with rouges and trojans. It is decent for removing tracking cookies but SuperAntiSpyware is even better at that.

Is Vipre enough?
I recently installed Vipre. Is this sufficient protection? Would running PCTools "Threatfire" and/or MSE along side Vipre have any more benefit or would they conflict with each other? Thanks for any thoughts

Just installed VIPRE
Just installed VIPRE antivirus and anti spyware. I am using PCTools firewall. After turning off MSE, it is reporting "Computer at Risk". Is it OK to run MSE and VIPRE? Should I ignore the "at Risk" warning? The firewall included Threatfire, should I turn that off too? VIPRE reports clean machine...

A Spybot warning: WinSATRestorePower
This morning Spybot threw up a registry entry warning: "WinSATRestorePower" I can find nothing, searching this on either my system or using Google. Does anyone know if WinSATRestorePower is a Windows 7 component? Otherwise I'll treat it as a worm or virus. Thanks. HalD
