    Hello Everyone,

    This is my first post here. I've searched through a lot of the SpywareBlaster forum looking for info regarding Windows Defender settings when SpywareBlaster is being run on the same system. Is it okay to have real-time protection enabled in Defender? Should Defender be disabled completely? I am just recovering from a bad virus and need to be sure that these "new to me" security programs aren't conflicting with each other (SypwareBlaster, Windows Defender, avast free AV, Malwarebyte's AM, Comodo FW, WinPatrol).

    Thanks in advance for any help on this.

    SpywareBlaster --- which offers passive protection --- should not interfere with any programs (Anti-virus, anti-malware, firewall) that run actively in real-time.

    in particular, I use all your mentioned programs [SypwareBlaster, Windows Defender, avast free AV 5, Malwarebyte's AM (free version), Comodo FW 2.4, WinPatrol PLUS] on XP SP3 without any conflicts.
