    Default Is this compatible

    Is Spybot compatible with other anti malware programs on the same computer? I really dont want to mention competitiors names but I believe you all know what programs are out there.

    Default Compatibility

    I also run a well known Internet Security package on my computer which doesn't seem to detect malware. I knew I had a Trojan because of the way my computer was behaving. I therefore downloaded Spybot which detected, among others, 'Babylon'. I would like to know if it is OK to allow Spybot to run at the same time as my original security package?

    If you have Spybot 2.0,then there is no Teatimer,so conflicts between Spybot and the Internet Security program you have are much less likely to happen:

    If you have Spybot 1.6,then please see here:
