Thanks for your answer. It would be helpful if I could get some tips on how to run these two programs on one computer. Norton 360 is fully running but it would be helpful if I could get tips on how to run Spy Doctor so they don't conflict and negatively affect my computer. If I keep real time protection off completely and if I can possibly stop random scans would that be enough to prevent conflicts? I really would like to use these two combinations because I've found that what one misses the other picks up (with spyware and adware) more so than Malwarebytes and Norton 360. Thanks in advance for any info. you can give me.
