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.

Microsoft Security Essentials v1 Vs. v2
So I notice MSE v2 is released. I have v1.0.2498.0 installed, and when I press UPDATE only the definitions are renewed. I don't know whether to uninstal old one and instal v2.0.657. Thing is I've never had any problem with the old one, and if it ain't broke.... Anybody got any thoughts...
