Hi There :thumbsup:

I currenty have Spywareblaster installed on my system. Should I use IE-SPYAD as well? I think it might be a good idea but the IE-Spyad main download website recommends that one should not use too many blockers.

What is your opinion?

Also: - if you recommend IE-Spyad, should I install the one for CURRENT USER ONLY or for ALL USERS? I use the computer at home. My wife & I are administrators and my son (who is only 2 1/2 right now) will eventually get a limited account.

Let me know, thanks!! :flowers:

The question is how many are "too many".

I think that multiple warning popups (requiring your ok) are a small price to pay for better protection and all aps will pick up some others may miss.

I use Windows Defender and Spybot, both realtime protection.

Also, I would recommend installing them for all users. What good is an ap designed to protect your system that you have turned off?
