I use AVG free, and am on my second day of the 15-day trial of SUPERAntiSpyware. I have been previously using SpySweeper, but I suppose that that doesn't matter in regards to this question.
I run scans on Saturday mornings, just after midnight, when we are in bed, and not using the PC. First I run the AS scan, and then the AV scan. I note the scan times, and then set the schedules to allow approximately 10 minutes in between.
For no real reason, a curiosity popped into my head: Is there any difference, or advantage, in the order in which the two security programs are run? In other words, would there be any reason that I may want to run the AVG scan before the spyware scan, instead of after?
Thank you to all who take the time to reply.
