Hi, I'm presently using AVG Free 7.5 A/V, A/S, and Anti-Rootkit. I have Windows XP Home SP2. I'm going to be updating to AVG 8.0 Free at the end of the month. And I'm going to be ditching Spybot (I still have 1.4 installed), and would like to go with Spyware Blaster 4.1 instead. So I have a number of questions about it because I'm always worried/paranoid about installing new software and not messing anything up (or causing compatibility issues, etc.). 1. Any tips/instructions on installation/set-up/settings? I saw this excellent guide here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/tutorial49.html (but it's outdated). Is there a newer one or other steps/things to consider? 2. Any compatibility issues with anything in general, or any of the following specifically? Windows XP Home SP2 AVG 8.0 Free (have those all been addressed by AVG?) ZoneAlarm 6.1.744.001 SuperAntispyware 4.15.1000 AdAware SE Free 1.06r1 Firefox 22.214.171.124 (I use this now) Firefox 3.x (for future reference -- will upgrade in December) IE 6.5 (used only for Windows Updates -- set for "High" security level with cookies off, except for Windows Update listed as safe site with Medium setting) 3. How easily does it uninstall, if ever needed? Cleanly and completely? Cause issues with anything else? How firmly embedded? 4. If your IE settings are already set to High and set to not allow Active X or cookies (except for Windows Update), should you still enable both the Active X and cookies protection? I'm guessing yes, but I just want to make sure that it doesn't do anything "bad" or contrary if you have those things set that way already? Same with Firefox... if I already have cookies turned off, does it do the opposite or something contrary if I also use the Firefox cookie protection in Spyware Blaster? 5. Does the program itself uses Java? I actually don't have Java installed on my computer... (Never had any need for it...) I only ask because the company is "Javacool". (Sorry if that's a dumb question!) 6. What about the snapshot thing? Is that just the same as a system restore point? Any reason to do this? 7. Anything else I should know? Thanks for fielding these newbie questions!
