    Question Spyware and Adware Removal Guide Speed Up and Free your PC

    I currently have MaCafee Security Center which claims to have spyware protection which was included when I bought it for virus protection. I did not see a discussion of how well it works relative to other anti-spyware programs.

    I understand that running multiple antivirus programs is a problem. Does anyone know if I would be better off disabling the spyware feature in MaCafee or if its ok to also install a separate spyware program that runs in parallel with the Security Center?

    Yeah you can run as many Spyware/Adware apps as you want. I reccomend doing a scan with at least 2-3 of them once a week.

    They will all normally find different things just because of their definitions, does not mean one is bad and one is good.

    Sybot Search And Destroy is a good freeware one, windows defender, AdAware, the list goes on.

    But yes, you can and should run many spyware apps at least once a week or a few times a month
