I was just wondering what your guys thought on threatfire is. I am currently using it with eset nod32 ,but wonder if it might be conflicting since I dont have full trust in the makers of threatfire.

ThreatFire FAQs

As a general rule, using more than one anti-spyware program like Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, SuperAntispyware, Spybot S&D, Ad-Aware, etc will not conflict with each other or your anti-virus if using only one of them for real time protection and others as stand-alone scanners. In fact, doing so increases your protection coverage without causing the same kind of conflicts or affecting the stability of your system that can occur when using more than one anti-virus. The overlap of protection from using different signature databases will aid in detection and removal of more threats when scanning your system for malware. However, if using all their real-time resident shields (TeaTimer, Ad-Watch, MBAM Protection Module, Spyware Terminator Shields, etc) together at the same time, there can be conflicts when each application tries to compete for resources and exclusive rights to perform an action. Additionally, competing tools may even provide redundant alerts which can be annoying and/or confusing.

PC Tools are the makers of ThreatFire. Why do you not trust them?

Does the protection actually amount to what they have on the graphs on the site. I am skeptical in some cases that the product adds 5-1x the amount of protection that it says

I had it for a while, probably over a month, and it didnt seem to help anything...I had it running with Comodo and even read the topics on a website dealing with running both of them and making it work. It still didnt seem to block as much as my other programs i use do..so not too sure (i dont trust what they say at least)
