    Default Questions about conflicts between several programms

    I understand that the spybot Home edition is also an AV programm and there for cannot be run next to another AV programm, like e.g. norton.
    But i only recently ordered the spybot home version and am waiting for the key to upgrade to home edition. Just to be sure: untill i upgrade it, can i run the free edition ( which isn't AV ) next to norton without conflicts?

    Next question is, can i run both spybot and antimalwarebytes premium edition without any conflicts?

    Regards,

    Vasco71

    It is fine to run one anti virus program along with more than one anti spyware, anti malware program.

    Compare versions of Spybot: http://www.safer-networking.org/shop/

    As you mentioned the free version does not include an anti-virus.

    Hope that helps.

    Hello Vasco71,

    A lot of people use Spybot and MBAM together without issue.

    All the best.
