While there is no "official" list of applications advocated by BC, many members rely on the same ones to keep their computer secure. Certainly, Spybot and Ad-AwareSE are the top free anti-spyware applications (many members supplement these two with others) that should, I think, be on every computer.
The choice of Anti-Virus applications is more varied. Certainly Panda and AVG are used by many here, but there are several other excellent choices.
Now, the question of compatibility more concerns running more than one Anti-virus at a time, and having more than one anti-sypware with real-time protection running together. Generally, since AVs and ASs look for different kinds of problems, and in different ways, there should be no conflict.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
