    I am more or less seeking advice and not support. Is having Winpatrol and Windows Defender considered "overkill" since the two programs do, basically, the same thing? I really don't want to have both programs on my system. Also, Is the Windows Defender spyware scanner really any better than AdAware or Spybot S&D or Ewido?

    having multiple malware scanners is a good thing...they all find different things...keep them all..winpatrol by BillP does different things and I can recommend it as well
