So you have all three on your computer? Wow, that's paranoid in the xtreme.

Enzo Avira fee edition is all that you will need. Nothing will get close whether your browsing or downloading. It's very light and scans rapidly. I very very rarely run scan and cant remember the last time I did. I also turn windows defender of and just have windows firewall and Avira running.

I have all three installed but not resident. You cannot have too many spyware programs since they all give different results.

SpywareBlaster (prevention) & Malwarebytes (removal), only 2 you will ever need.

Where do you turn off Windows Defender? Windows Security tells me that having two anti spyware program running may slow down my system; I am also running Norton 2009. I can turn off the Norton anti spyware but I would rather turn off the Windows Defender.

I did a search for "services" and found it. I disabled Windows Defender and the complaint is gone. I also found another thing I was looking for; administrative tools. Guess I am too used to the Classic view for the Control Panel.

Thanks

any new anti-spyware/malware software
So I've been using Superantispyware, malwarebytes, spywareblaster, adaware, and spybot. But I've eliminated Spybot and adaware because spybot messed up one of my programs and adaware just works too slow when scanning. So I'm wondering is there any new software I could check out?
