    Are there any issues using Spybot &/or Ad-Aware, with NOD32?

    Specifically NOD32 with:

    Ad-Aware Free 9.07 with "Ad-Watch Live" Processes protection enabled

    Spybot 1.6.2 with both Residents enabled ("TeaTimer" [system settings protection] and "SDHelper" [IE bad download blocker]).

    There are many Ad-aware and SpyBot users that frequent these threads, please be patient and perhaps someone will chime in with an answer to your query.

    Please tell us what your installed version of ESET Software is. What are the issues you are experiencing with your ESET software relating to Ad-aware and SpyBot ?

    Thank you.

    Thank you for your reply, siljaline!

    NOD32 version 4.2.71.2

    Honestly I'm experiencing no issues at all with the two products. I'm wondering if there's some problematic redundant functionality, since I recently read a suggestion that this might lead to some 'disagreement as to what program is responsible for taking out a threat, allowing the threat entry'.

    I'd not bother with those two rather dated antimalware apps. I'd try MBAM full version. It's realtime and site blocklists are much better than in the past and will prob do a better job than Add-Aware or Spybot. I'd use them but disable realtime protection on both. Tea timer sucks IMHO.

    You are welcome for the reply. If you are asking if Ad-aware and or SpyBot play well with ESET software, in the time I have been reading and posting to Wilders, I am not aware of such an issue. If you could perhaps post back the information that you stated was a problem with ESET software. This would help us greatly in assisting you further in your query. Ad-watch, as an example, may interfere with Web Protection that ESET anti-virus provides. This is only based on my personal experience with the two programs in the incarnation in which they were when I ran them. We would need more specifics from you to continue.

    Thank you.

    Yes, that is precisely what I am asking.
    Honestly I haven't seen any evidence they aren't all playing well together....
    So I guess I'll simply consider disabling Ad-watch, thank you!

    If the Ad-watch component of Ad-aware is disabled it does not effect the overall functionality of Ad-aware. From what I recall, Ad-watch is opt-in.

    Thanks and let us know your progress.
