I had a thought and maybe some others now the answer. I'm pretty good at doing regular maintenance;
disk clean and clear IE history cache etc...every few days and never over a week.
Since I Spyblast realtime, I could run my free MBAM as part of routine maintenance. However, I would need to have a list of the specific folders that should get that should get checked as a part of my regular maintenance routine.
I'm still trying to figure out windows top-to-bottom hiearchy of folders. I'm beginning to grasp it somewhat but sometimes I get confused of what a folders are in what folders. I'll spare you my mac experiences and just reiterate that I would love for Beginners guide to the following step by step the hierarchy of Windows folders.
I do recall Windows 7 doing like mac with some indexing tho that is really a different potatoe.
I did get one tip today from my passing through PC step-son. Control Panel is in alphabetical order from left to right and not vertically in each column. 6 months I've been complaing about control panel not in alphabetical order. Well at least they didn't to go from right to left....ha ha.
I love Windows 7 and enjoying my PC experience. Fun to learn something new, irrespective of some frustrations along the way.

If I hear or have evidence of a problem I will surely post here and let others know. You can consider me as one of the many gunia pigs hanging around 7 Forums

The problem with running 2 antivirus program is not which one grabs what first
The problem is they both boot up together and scan prior to windows opening
They could be scanning files at the same time and that will cause a conflict big time
I am not a newbie and I have worked on many computers who have done what you are doing and in some cases it crashed windows so bad I had no recourse but to reinstall windows
You look at any of the manufacturers and all will tell you must uninstall one before putting on another
You are playing what the call Russian Roulette, do you want to wait till something like this happens to you or do you want to be safe and use one antivirus program?
You can run an Antispyware program in real time, it boots up a bit differently then the antivirus ones do so you should not have a conflict
