Since I am a fairly new user of NOD32, I'm not too sure about NOD's spyware detection. Some AV software, KAV, NAV, Trend Micro, etc, have spyware detection modules one can enable. NOD32 doesn't give the user those options. I have Spybot S&D, and AdAware free installed. I have tried CounterSpy and now Windows Defender. Both seem to slowdown my computer at intitialial startup after being turned off over night. Restarts are not a problem. Using NOD32, would my computer be safe from spyware without running Counterspy, Windows Defender, or any other real time monitor type antispyware software? Is running SpyBot with teatimer enabled be good enough? Is NOD32 with Spybot and AdAware in the background ok? Is any real time spyware software necessary when running NOD32? Sorry if these seem like dumb questions. I'm just trying to familiar myself with the way NOD protects my compurter. PS....My OS is XP Home/SP2.
