    I was running windows defender + comodo 3 with D+ + Avira classic on xp home without any conflicts,
    today i installed norton antibot, during the installation NAB prompted to disable win defender, so i disabled it,

    can i run any other antispyware with NAB or is NAB enough for protection against spyware?

    In the Light of PARTHENON
    a) NAB, which is a Behavior Blocker, can be replaced by
    ThreatFire (free) OR Mamutu (paid).
    b) If you want to keep NAB and look for AntiSpyware solutions:

    =>Free: SUPERAntiSpyware and MalwareBytes AntiMalware.
    Spybot Search & Destroy together with SpywareBlaster 4.0.
    =>Paid: SUPERAntiSpyware Pro, Spyware Doctor, CounterSpy, and MalwareBytes AntiMalware.
