Windows 7: Conflicting Microsoft Compatibility Tools?

Conflicting Microsoft Compatibility Tools?

I'm looking at two Windows 7 compatibility tools from Microsoft, and they are giving conflicting results. The Upgrade Advisor download (Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor - Download - Microsoft Windows) says two of my printers have "Unknown" status and that my version of Symantec has "Known Issues" and may experience problems. But when I use the online Compatibility Center (Windows 7 Compatibility Center home) it says those items are "Compatible" and they have big green check marks next to them. Which one should I believe?

I would tend to believe the downloaded report least in terms of Symantec. I don't know about it in W7, but I found that Symantec was a known issue on previous OSs that I have used. In other words, I wouldn't touch it with a 10 foot pole.

MSE Compatibility with other tools
I have MSE installed plus Malwarebytes free and Super antispyware (for occasional checks). I have just installed Zemana antilogger paid for (after suspecting I have a keylogger) and am just wondering if any of these programs will conflict. Thank you.

Conflicting reports about compatibility (wireless)
Have looked at Windows 7 compatibility centre for recommended wireless adapters and it seems that most people are having problems. Can anybody tell me of an adapter that will work with 32bit or 64bit Windows 7 Ultimate (P6T-SE motherboard):confused:
