Hi all , i have just recently got spyware doctor onto my laptop but i see it says that it also has an anti-virus.I run security essentials and was wondering if it is ok to have the spyware doctor (as it as an anti-virus) running alongside it

Absolutely not. Run only one of the two. Suggest MSE. Spyware Dr. is not too good in my book but can be used for additional scanning. Just make sure you get it out of the startups.

Good deal. Security scanners you can have as many as you want. Just don't let them run actively together.
