Any problems running two anti spy ware programs? Reason is my anti virus provider is offering a nice package deal, it includes some nice extra feature but also would add another spy ware.

Do you mean two running at the same time, all of the time?

That means everthing coming in (and maybe launching) will be scanned
twice. You could really see the slow down on my system and it's fairly fast.

So now I only run one and scan the system with a few others about once a
week. I scan with Ad-Aware, Spybot Search&Destroy, and Adware Away.
They each use different methods to search. It's interesting they all pick
up different things. Mostly cookies.

I have Spy Sweeper and am thinking about getting the pack offered by my anti virus provider, I can schedule them to go off at different days!
