    It seems to me that, the new SPYBOT S&D 1.3 features that were NOT in 1.2 (teatimer etc.), are doing completely the same thing then SpywareGuard does.

    Is that really so?? or is there a small overlap, and if there is what are the

    Has it any use, to run the both (resident) ?

    Or is it better to choose one of those two?

    Please don't be offended, this is a question not a statement, a really don't know!

    I am still trying to make my mind up about TT with SpywareGuard. At present I ahve disabled TT as I suspected some sort of conflict with my other software. The one thing I can tell you is that if you try to change your homepage SpywareGuard is the first to warn you; after that TT comes out and you need to answer another set of questions.

    I know there are other features with TT which may well be useful to have but I also found it warned me when an ad was blocked with my other software which could slow things up a little. I may try it as resident again now that I have cleared up a few conflicts and see what happens now.

    I do not found any incompatibility (ZoneAlarm, avast! Pro antivirus, Ad-aware, SpyBot and SpywareBlaster...)

    Maybe, but I found nothing. Running smoothly at 1Gb RAM.

    The two programs compliment each other, they both have their strong points and work well togather.
