    Is SG not needed or redundant if one is using Windows Defender? This was mentioned on another site, although praising SG for other users. I've used SG on many systems with great results and haven't noticed any conflicts since installing Defender, but am I getting any benefit from using both now? Is the memory used by SG basically "wasted"? Are there things that SG does that Defender doesn't? Thanks in advance!

    I would be guessing from prior MSAS that spywareguard was redundant when using microsoft's antispyware. So to answer your question, you don't have to run spywareguard if you run any of the microsoft's antispyware applications.
