    Hi

    When I turn Defender on in Windows 7, the Action Centre reports that running two antispyware programs (the other being NOD32) in real time can cause the pc to run slowly.

    More importantly, would they cause problems if both detect the same spyware in real time?

    Thanks.

    Which ESET producrt are you using? Are you using just the antivirus, or are you using the full Smart Security Suite?

    More Anti-Spyware NOD32/ESS is no longer enough? I think it would not need the performance of Windows Defender in your security configuration.

    Okay, thought as much. You'd be better to post in the ESS forum.

    Use a real time protectoin from another AniSpyware program is overkill!

    That's the whole point of NOD32, light resource utilization :rolleyes:

    I just ran manual weekly scans with my antispyware which is SuperAntiSpyware FTW
