New adaware and mse

Is it ok to run both at the same time? Ive just installed the new 8.1 version of adaware and its ad-watch live! thing is currently active. (registry and network parts are off).

I haven't used Ad-aware in ages .... It may or may not work along side MSE, you'll just have to try it

SuperAntiSpyware works with MSE, so experiment!

Have you installed version Free of Ad-aware or other paid version?
Version Free doesn't have AV module, others version have AV but I'm not sure how good implemented AV module in Ad-aware is. I have never seen any test about this AV. Anyways it is not recommend to have two AV's or two FW in the same time in your system.

Its the free version which still comes with things like process watch which i guess mse has as well.

From site:
Product Comparison Chart - Lavasoft

It looks like smth like HIPS monitoring. As far as I know MSE doesn't offer HIPS (prevention) protection but only detection via AV signatures. So this is different approach.
I would recommend you others better HIPS than that in Ad-aware if you like.

MSE rums with almost all the anti spywares with real time protection turned on.

OK, do you like when software alerts you about every single action you made (eg. open a file > software ask you if you really want run this executable) or you like more/prefer 'silent' versions of security software?
