    :D I have read a Spybot tutorial on the bleepingcomputer.com site that
    mentions a Spybot/Teatimer & SpywareGuard "conflict" AND a
    Spybot/Immunize & SpywareBlaster "overlapping protection situation" ;
    with the recent release of the "new" Spybot 1.4, does anyone know
    the current "status" of these 2 "issues" ?

    Do you have a link in regards to this supposable issue ?

    There has aways been an "overlapping protection situation" in regards to these 2 programs due to the overlapping database in regards to the ActiveX, Restricted Sites and cookie protection offered by these two programs.

    :) The only link I can think of is the one with the Spybot 1.3 Tutorial :
    http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial43.html !?
    Since you are aware of the "overlapping protection situation", this is NOT
    the one you would be looking !? On the net-integration forums it has been
    said the new 1.4 no longer mentions SpywareBlaster on its "Immunize"
    screen, like the 1.3 version does, so I was wondering if this forum's
    members may know of any change in the programming of Spybot 1.4 that
    may effect its "protection situation" with SpywareBlaster ? I currently use
    SpywareBlaster & SpywareGuard and have avoided installing any Spybot
    version because of this "situation" .
