Hi all:

I have been using SuperAntiSpySpyware along with Avast and Comodo Firewall for my security suite.  Both SAS and Comodo were recommendations by members of this forum.   :)  I was thinking of purchasing Webroot Window Washer since for some reason going through Tools/Internet Options on Internet Explorer really doesn't seem to eliminate cookies, history, temp files, auto-complete, etc. which I don't understand at all. 

Window Washer is also available bundled with Webroot's SpySweeper.  I'm not sure if it is a resident real-time spyware program (which I understand could interfere with Avast).

Does anyone have experience with Webroot SpySweeper particularly in regards to any conflicts with Avast?.  I believe I have read on this forum it is OK and even recommended to have more than one spyware program, correct?

Thanks Avatar2005.

Is SpySweeper a "real-time" spyware monitor or "on demand"?  Would it be OK to have it on my pc along with SuperAntiSpyWare?

As far I know, a real-time (on-access) one. But you can disable the resident part.

The free SuperAntiSpyWare does not have a resident, so if you're using it, no trouble.
The best things in life are free.
