    Default Spybot compatibility with AVG Free 8.0

    For quite some time, I have been relying on a trio of security software to defend my PC from any threats, namely AVG Free Antivirus, Spybot S&D and Lavasoft's Ad Aware Free, and so far they have worked pretty well together. However, AVG recently upgraded their free Antivirus package to also include their Antispyware software (or so I understand from their website and their constant reminders) and I am concerned about compatibility issues with Spybot.

    Can anyone, either maybe someone from the dev team or another user who had this issue but resolved it, clarify if the new AVG 8.0 Free will have any compatibility issues with Spybot?

    Spybot-SD is fully compatible with AVG and AdAware. It never hurts to have more than one anti-spyware program.

    However, it still seems to me that AVG detects false positives, within Spybot's immunization.

    No problem.

    Does that clear your doubts about the compatibility issues?
