    Hi;

    I've got AVG installed on my system, along with NETCOM 3.

    I'm thinking about installing CounterSpy (with VIPRE) (from Sunbelt),
    but I'm concerned about conflicts.

    Should I remove either of the two that I've mentioned before installing CounterSpy?

    If I remove AVG, will CounterSpy also scan email messages as they are downloaded
    (as AVG does)?

    Thanks!

    Avg is both antivirus and antispware, so unless you plan to put another antivirus program on, I would not be uninstalling Avg for CounterSpy.

    Hi Rich!

    Are you telling me that AVG is the better product?

    Thanks for the response!
