Should I use Spyware Guard even though I only use Internet Explorer for Windows Updates and use Firefox for everything else?

hi yanowhiz
i identify with that, i only use IE for the updates, but recently i wanted to book a holiday online and the website could only be seen in IE, so i was glad that i had that little bit of extra (Spyware Guard)
i think nowadays, you just can't be too careful.

I agree with Starbuck.
You can't be too careful, when it comes to protecting your computer.
Spyware Guard, is one of the programs I use.

Using FF is certainly a good idea, since it closes many common security holes, but having other layers of protection is necessary because FF can never be 100 percent safe, and not all sites comply with published web standards (requiring consequently the use of IE).

Ok thank you. I'll keep it then, I was just curious cause I have many other Anti-Spyware Programs. Ever one I tell says I have too many:

Spyboy, Ad-Aware, Spy Blaster, Spyware Guard, MSAS, SpySweeper, and Spyware Doctor.
