Well, i have been reading through a couple of posts and noticed that there is a lot of stuff about anti spyware so i thought ill ask about something Ive been wondering about. In one of the posts i read, it mentioned something about overlapping. What i mean is that it was talking about the fact that no one anti spyware can guarantee an absolute coverage against all viruses and stuff. So it suggested to get a few to overlap each other(i think thats what it meant).
So i was wondering if any one can help me with my anti spyware programmes. I currently have
a)AVG 7.5 (paid version)
b)Spybot search and destroy
So based on what was said about overlapping, i was wondering if what i have is alright. Should i
a)Add any more programs?(but i dont want TOO many)
b)Replace any programs
Or does anyone have anything else in mind? Also, no matter what happens, im not going to be removing the AVG cause my dad bought it and will lecture me if i remove it...hehe...
Futhermore i have been starting to use online scanners such as
b)BitDefender Online Scanner
Now about Kaspersky, it doesn't remove anything it finds(sadly) but i feel that it does a very powerful and thorough scan. BitDefender is not that thorough but it removes anything it finds.
Also i basically only use freeware(other than AVG), so if anyone has any suggestions on freeware please do tell.
Oh yeah and i was also wondering if having too many programmes will slow down my computer.
So yeah, i hope someone can direct me in the best way or best combinations of programmes to use to get the best. Of course i acknowledge there is no 100% full proof way. As they say the only full proof way is to unplug your computer.
Thank you very much!
