| On my computer are installed (besides the XP firewall), MS AntiSpyware Beta
| AVG7.0.308 and
| LavaSoft Adaware 6.
| Do I need all three, or would AntiSpyware do the job alone?
| Thanks in advance, Gerhard
You need to replace Ad-aware6 with Ad-aware SE v1.05. Ad-aware6 is no longer supported nor
I also suggest you download and use SpyBot Search and Destroy v1.3
The combination of AVg 7.x, Ad-aware and SpyBot S&D should keep you good. However, if you
don't practice Safe Hex, all the software in the world won't help you.
As for MS Anti Spyware. It is a Beta software and I haven't and don't suggest it until it
comes out of Beta status.
In addition, MS Anti Spyware is NOT a substitute for anti virus software.
