I'm running NIS 2006 AntiSpyware edition on XP Home Service Pack 2 along with SpywareBlaster and ie-spyad. Should I also install MAS and would it conflict with NIS?

You can install it for scanning purposes but don't use the real time protection. In other words, don't have it run when your computer starts up. This will likely cause conflicts with NIS.

I made the mistake of downloading Microsoft Defender, Microsoft Baseline Security and WindowsoneCare.
They conflict with Nortorn Internet Security. I could not us Internet Explorer nor Mozilla Firefox. Althought, I cleared these browsers as approved sites on Norton and WindowsOneCare, there was a conflict which would not allow the browser to open any sites. WindowsOneCare is a combination of WindowsDefender, Antivirus, Anti-Spyware and Automated Update program. I was forced to uninstall all the files in order to get my Browsers Back. Microsoft is selling the Beta addition to Beta Testers for $19.95 (first year only) and subsequent users for $49.00 per year. This is their attempt to jump into the Security Suite Business. Aol has also put out a Free Suite of Security tools, but, their tech support phone has a recordered message, "if you are calling about the conflict between AOL Security Suite and Norton please call the following number.................................etc.. You can use AOL Spyware Program with Windows Defender, but not WindowsoneCare or Norton Internet Security. Windows Defender will work with AOL if it is a standalone not included in WindowsoneCare. That the story. Regards to All, Chefbigfeet
