Windows 7: Windows Defender & Others

Windows 7 Home 64 bit
Windows Defender & Others


I am setting up my new lappy and planning what spyware/antivirus to use.

I use Avira Antivir personal (free version) and have for a long time and am really happy with it.

I am thinking about installing Spybot and Malwarebytes as well. My question is firstly, does this sound good to you guys and secondly should I be running Windows Defender real time as well? I have read that running all these at the same time can cause conflicts.

I feel you can have too much going on at the same time so my lappy wont know its arse from its head lol.

Would be greatful for any advise, thanks

Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit. SP1.

*Asking for an opinion may result in confusion as many differing ones will be given.

Please consider -
* Microsoft Security Essentials.
It is free. A lot of people use & recommend it here

* I would also recommend the free version of SuperAntiSpyWare. | Remove Malware | Remove Spyware - AntiMalware, AntiSpyware, AntiAdware!

* SpywareBlaster { free} runs happily in the background offering great protection.
Read about it -
SpywareBlaster® | Prevent spyware and malware. Free download.

* Remember to include in your protection a Firewall too.

* IMHO Defender can be overlooked.

* Your new lappy will probably come preinstalled with an Anti Virus.
Should you NOT wish to use it then it needs to be uninstalled { via the Manufacturers uninstall tool} before downloading the AV of your own choice.
