| Hi,

| Just a question on the antivirus issue.

| After uninstalling AVG and then downloading Microsoft Security Essentials, I
| noticed that I was advised by the latter to take off any other malware
| products such as Spybot Search and Destroy and Spyblaster before downloading
| it because it may conflict with these other spyware products.

| Is this true, can they really conflict and could this also slow down the PC
| or cause some other problems by having them as well as MSE?

| I still use Spybot and it still does its thing and Spyblaster still works in
| the background as far as I am aware. All I have to do is update
| them every now and again.

| Does anybody else still use these together or should you just use one to
| stop any possibility of conflict? More to the point, can this
| situation slow down your computer?

| Thanks in advance for any answer.

| Brenda


The only thing needed to be done is disable TeaTimer in SpyBot S&D.

| Sorry Dave. I am even more confused now :-(

| One of your links is foreign and the other one??? What do I do in here and
| what has this got to do with spy bot or spyware blaster?

>> The only thing needed to be done is disable TeaTimer in SpyBot S&D.


| "Tea Timer"??? Could you elaborate on this a bit more for me please. I am
| virtually a novice so I need this in layman terms please ;-)

| Thanks


Plaewse ask at the SpyBot S&D Forums.
