Sorry to start a new thread, but I didn't want to hijack someone else's with my own questions (hope that's the right thing to do here). I see that there is a new version of Spybot -- Version 1.5. I've been using 1.4 for years, but will update to 1.5 unless there are any problems/issues reported (?). Some questions:
1. On a previous thread awhile back, oldf@rt and tg1911 (thanks, folks!) recommended using SpywareBlaster in conjunction with SpyBot 1.4, just because it allowed you to immunize in Firefox (which SpyBot didn't). However, now Spybot 1.5 says that it immunizes in Firefox.
1a. So is there any reason to also install/use SpywareBlaster? (Is it also a scanner that could still be used?)
1b. If so, is there any conflict between installing/using both SpyBot 1.5 and SpywareBlaster?
2. Are there any conflicts at all with the new SpyBot 1.5 and any other program? (i.e. Ad-Aware SE Build 1.06r1, AVG A/V Free, AVG Antispyware Free, Comodo BOClean, ZA 6.5.737, etc.)
3. Is SpyBot 1.5 still totally Freeware and comes with no spyware or malware, etc.? (No offense meant by this question, just playing it safe!)
4. It looks like SpyBot 1.4 still being updated, so any reason not to install that on my new laptop (and stick with it on the current one) until any/all the bugs/quirks have been worked out with 1.5?
