    You asked this question in the Kaspersky forum just a couple of hour ago about Kav & LookNstop and got a positive response from those that actually use the combo. :)

    I've also ran kav and Looknstop together. And they run very good with each other. No conflicts. I should point out that I run Kav 5.0 personal, and not the latest kav 6.0 version.

    I only trialed looknstop for about 2 weeks and didn't purchase it. Fine firewall, but I'm a kerio 2.1.5. fan..and it's free.

    Hi Lodore,

    No, I am using it with the OTB with the Enhanced Rule Set.
    It may not be so bad now, but the only firewalls that KAV6 had the most conflicts were Outpost, and Zone Alarm.

    Don can comment on the current situation, but LnS seems to run well with KAV.

    Best,
    Jerry

    OutPost works really well with KAV. No problems at all. :)

    to avoid conflicts i might try kis 6.0. so then my real time protection will be kis6.0 and spysweeper but might then turn off some of spysweepers shields
