Will Norton 360 Premier interact negatively with the freeware version of Spyware doctor? I know you normally aren't supposed to mix anti-virus/anti-spyware programs but I loved Spyware Doctor and feel like Norton is missing some things.


Thanks Lucy x

Probably, I generally find Norton seems to be detrimental to everything else while its running, so I expect thats true for this program also.

(Friends don't let friends use Norton)

But seriously, I don't think using these two together would pose a problem.

EDIT: Spoke too soon - a quick google revealed this. To be perfectly honest I'd ditch Norton and go for something else altogether (I like Kaspersky Internet Security).

Please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I thought spyware doctor was a fake antispyware program which actually was just spyware.

Use the new Microsoft essentials, it's very small footprint, fast and best of all free.




Tyler - Parnell Geek - iPhone 3G - Lenovo X301 - Kaseya - Great Western Steak House, these are some of my favourite things.

I would have thought that PC Tools Spyware Doctor was a legitimate anti-spyware program,  while I do not use that product,  I have used other PC Tools software for years (anti-virus & firewall).

Microsoft's Essentials rated very poorly in various reviews I've seen,  and Nortons never rates highly.
