Some thinking of anti spywares and anti virus programs

I think we should installed more than two anti spywares in our pc.

Even I have installed the near latest spyware doctor version 5.01.205, scan it and found 1998 threats. Then I tried to use the Ad-Aware se to deep rescan my harddrive, and still found10 critical objects(19 Negligible objects).

So I highly recomended to use a free ware anti spyware program with a commercial anti spyware program. It help somewhere and we will feel our pc more safely to use and surf.

Nowaday spywares and viruese are so trickly and not easy to get rid of, even you not log on to internet, but today's world that we cannot refuse to surf into the internet. Prevention is still very important to us.

Anti virus programs may also have to installed two different programs. Norton anti virus and AVG can lived together. Be aware that we cannot install two firewalls as Windows itself have one firewall installed. So there will be three firewall if we installed two.

It's a tricky question to use two security programs concurrently. For example, if you install Kaspersky AntiVirus on machine, that already have Symantec AntiVirus, you will get broken, not bootable Windows after reboot. From personal experience - try Agnitum Outpost Security Suite. It includes firewall, anti-virus, anti-spam, anti-spyware. And it's really effective.
