    Default Spybot compatability?

    I did not see this referenced on Spybot's web page and am having similar difficulty finding it on other products web pages.

    Does anyone know the compatabilty of Spybot to other virus/spy ware products, specifically McAfee VirusScan, Avast & Ewido.

    Can any combination of these products peacefully co-exist on the same PC?

    Thanks!

    Hello.

    I do not know of any problems between Spybot-S&D, McAfee VirusScan, Avast & Ewido.

    This topic may be of interest.

    However you should not have two resident anti virus programs. (McAfee VirusScan, Avast)

    I've used the layered protection setup in my signature for several years without a problem.
    Win XP Home SP2, Free ZoneAlarm (5.5.094.000), plus the latest versions of Windows Defender, Avast Home Edition, SpywareBlaster, Spybot S&D, Ad-Aware SE Personal, and Ewido.
