    I finally sprung for secureanywhere essentials because a most of what I tried slowed me down
    now for the big question

    do you recommend running a light free antivirus too,for extra security or secureanywhere by itself? one thing is I have WinXP. and 1 gb of ram and a old pentium 4 2.66 ghz ..

    if both no conflicts on which one tries to contine a bad download firsto_O?

    It's up to you, but I do recommend if you do is add MBAM Pro as it's a one time payment or a free AV such as Avast Free or Microsoft Security Essentials but again it's up to you and who uses your computer! Myself I find WSA is enough for me as I'm a safe surfer and not a happy clicker meaning I don't click on suspicious files!

    Too all that are interested:

    I have tried WSA Essentials with Microsoft's Security Essentials and AVG Free.

    WSA + Security Essentials = worked fine. :thumb:
    WSA + AVG Free = screwed-up Google searchs and other strange IE problems. :thumbd:

    In the end, I am running WSA Essentials only on three systems. I plan to add MBAM paid in the near future to at least one of these three.:)

    Regarding Avast Free, I can confirm that it works fine with WSA, with little impact on resources. I've been using this combo for a few months and so far, no conflict.

    OS: Win 7 x64 SP1 ; browser: Firefox

    Have you tried recent builds of WSA with AVG? The issues with search pages should have been fixed.

    Thanks!

    You should be able to correct this by disabling Settings - Web threat shield - Analyze search engine results, to allow you to use both products together (as it looks like AVG's LinkScanner is conflicting with WSA's link scanner in your case).
