    I dont know if this is the right spot to post this or not . But I was wondering something ? Im running Spybot Search and Destroy right now and Norton System works, And I Have a lot of great things about Hijack this.
    Now what I was wanting to know, Are Hijack this and Spybot, Compatable with each other, or do they Have issues with each other if both are installed on the same system?
    Im running Windows XP , Spybot search and Destroy, for Spyware, And Nortons system works for my virus Scanner, and Some XP tools, (that wasnt on the XP Upgrade version. )
    Thanks for any help that you can give me on this. Would be much apprceiated. I didnt want to upset the applecart. So I thought I would ask b4 I downloaded Hijack this.

    Thanks A Bunch ,

    Yes

    Hijackthis just examines the registry & lists what is there whether good or bad & it is up to you with the help & advice from others on this & other forums to decide what needs to go.

    If you look in the security forum, you will see that HJT is the tool of choice to help diagnose problems & fix most of them, and Spybot & adaware are both recommended to use either before or after running HJT to clean up left over entries. Nothing that is recommended by the experts on these forums will ever harm your system

    I know that nothing is never recommended here that will harm my system, I trust these Techs completly, that is why I come here . That is Not what I was asking, I was asking if Spybot , and HJT Were COMPATABLE with each other as well as Norton system Works. Is all that I was wanting to know. Before I download HJT, and had to work thru compatablity Issues, is all I was wanting to know.

    HJT doesn't have compatibilty issues with anything.

    Now Norton System Works is another matter and a thread all to itself ;) (hee hee!)

    Seriously though, there are no problems with running HJT with any program. HJT is mainly a reporting tool and makes no alteration without user intervention,
