What general principles govern whether i need worry about avast interacting with security software? Thus, i know MBAM (on access) and AVAST Pro work well together but what about, eg, Microsoft Security Essentials?

It conflicts with another (full) antivirus.
AIS is incompatible with other firewalls (generally).

avast is compatible with some other limited programs for security, for instance, MBAM on demand.

I was wondering about SpyBot S&D. I turned off the resident shield. Is there still a "possible" conflict. I ask because I'm not a big fan of SAS and I have found SpyBot S&D to be more effective. In other words I use SpyBot as an on demand.

Update frequency of SpyBot, once a week ( wednesday )  http://www.av-test.org/numbers_vendor.php?program=spybotsd&lang=en

Malwarebytes have more updates in a week then Spybot in a year and so does SAS   http://www.superantispyware.com/definitionupdatehistory.html

I agree, Spybot is not recommendable nowadays. MBAM and SAS are better choices.

If you keep it on-demand only, it should be ok.  Maybe EAM might give you Avast! related FP's, but from what I gather, FP's are the rub with that program for many.

Ah yes that unfortunate though...I think if a person could run EAM along side AvastPRO that would be a potent duo. I've read and heard some excellent things about EAM over the last 6months or so. :-\
I already use MBAM for on demand. I'm thinking Real-Time

If you want the best realtime combination you only have to convert your on demand MBAM to the pro version to run with Avast, iv got a niece that is reckless with the site's she visit's tryin to get all her free music and game's and since i put this combination on her system she hasn't been infected once in the last year where previously i was going over there a couple of time's a week for repair's.
And speaking for myself iv never been infected with this combo.

Yeah, Pro your Mbam, its a cheap one-time, and a good company to support.  Threatfire for a free real-time option, maybe.

Thanks Caigb: For some reason I was of the impression that MBAM Pro running Real-Time and Avast PRo Conflicted...but if not that's great....However, just thinking out loud..one would think then that EAM would run okay along side Avast PRO....I don't know, just inquiring. ;)

Not a hundred percent sure about EAM, but you cant go against MBAM'S rating's and the price of about $25 for life it's to good a deal to pass up :)

No, see my sig... ;)
The free EAM works well as on demand scanner..!! (You have to set it up right though.)
