OneCare and Norton 360, AdAware and Spyware Doctor RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am soon going to replace my old, XP PC for a new Vista PC. Currently I run Norton 360 plus AdAware and Spyware Doctor together to give me complete protection.

    When I get the new PC I intend to give OneCare a try - is it necessary to (or prudent) to keep AdAware and Spyware Doctor running in addition to OneCare?

  • You will need to remove Norton and AdAware from the PC as they will conflict with OneCare. I don't have experience with Spyware Doctor, but if it provides any "real time" protection, it will also need to be removed. If it only protects by scanning on demand, meaning you need to initiate a manual scan, you can probably leave it installed and use it as you wish.
