    Hi, there should not be a conflict when using Avg and Spybot, however, there are better programs that you could use.
    Use the free versions
    MalwareBytes

    SuperAntiSpyware

    I agree with post #2.

    Note: The free version of both does fine.

    Spybot S&D No Longer Recommended

    MVPS.org is no longer recommending Spybot S&D due to poor testing results. (scroll down on the web site and read under Freeware Antispyware Products)
