I would like to have Counter Spy and Spy Sweeper running on my Windows 2000 partition at the same time. Are there any known problems or conflicts in doing this?

Someone suggested only allowing one of them, for example Counter Spy, to run at startup, and then do scans with the other one as appropriate, but wouldn't that negate the entire idea of having them both working at the same time to provide complete coverage and protection?

Is anyone actually running these programs simultaneously? Any conflicts?

If it turns out to be ok to run them simultaneously, should I use a startup manager to control the order and timing of startup so as to avoid any possible conflicts between them? If so, any recommendations for a good startup manager?

Sorry for all the related questions, but they avoid my posting several similar messages all about the same problem.

Thanks for any help.
