    First of all I would just like to say hi to all you great forumers! you are a wealth of information! I've been Lurking some time... :p

    Now for my question:

    I am running on WinXP SP2 and have 3 security apps that offer realtime spyware protection which are:

    NOD32 (Blackspear's Extra Settings)
    Outpost Firewall Pro with real time enabled
    and
    SuperAntiSpyware with real-time anabled

    Do you think this could cause a conflict and damage my system?

    Would I be better of disabling real time on outpost and SAS and just trusting NOD32 or would you also use SAS for real-time or all 3 as I am?

    I use Internet Explorer and do download quite a lot of Bit Torrent.

    Any advice would be welcome :)

    Thanks

    You could disable the antispyware protection in outpost, and after that your perfect, unless you want hips to the lot.

    I'd also recommend a bit of immunizing for IE. Set the permissions pretty high (Eg: prompt for all scripting) in the untrusted/internet zone), and get, install and update Javacool's SpywareBlaster. This uses no resources, is free (and trouble free) updates available (based on a blacklist of dodgy sites) every week or two. Just enable all protection after updating, and exit the program.
    Consider using Firefox with the Noscript and maybe Adblock add-ons, if you want to notch it up another level, but you look pretty good.
    Have a look at the other thread Here
    where a recommendation has been posted at #8 to lock the shared folder down for file sharing...I don't use those applications so it's a bit past my head, but looks very worth delving into.

    Thanks a lot for the replies guys! All your recommendations have been taken on board and I am now running everything you suggest apart from the HIPS as I don't really understand how this works :eek:

    Thanks again!
