    Default Spybot and Others Needed?

    A few years back I was researching a problem I was having on my computer and I ran across some advice that recommended running Spybot and Adaware and one other free malware removal program (that i can't remember). The logic being some programs would catch what the others miss... and so to be sure you are clean you could run all 3 of these programs. This was recommended as a low-tech kind of solution... a sort of idiot-proof catch all.

    Is this ok to do... and really necessary?

    It would depend on what kind of problem you would have. Please be specific.

    If the problem is not spyware or malware based, it may be redundant to run a scan with anti-spyware programs.

    Hello TheSpaghettiKid,

    There are a few tips here: So how did I get infected in the first place?

    Best regards.
