compatibility issues, namely Malware Bytes free, Site Advisor and
Spyware Blaster, I've read online conflicting views on this and wanted
to get the take in this forum, is installing these now after the fact of
installing Avira ok, or am I going to get errors and have to uninstall
Thanks for info in advance :)
Re: Avira Free and conflicts with Spyware Blaster/MBAM, etc
AFAIK, there won't be any problems if you run only one program at a
time. You may have to shut down Avira first, which means you should
disconnect from the 'net, just in case. If so, make sure the newly
installed program doesn't become the default shield.
Warning: some programs try to eliminate the competition. I won't allow
any such program on my machines.
Select the one you want as your real-time protector, and make sure the
others don't start up on boot. From time to time, disconnect from the
'net, shut down the real-time protection, and run the other scanners one
at a time. They will probably want to update first, let them do that.
After you've done the maintnenance, go through th program's setting to
make sure it won't start on boot.
BTW, if you use Avira as your primary shield, turn off Windows Firewall.
It will just slow things down.
