Certainly. Spybot Search & Destroy is a very, very good Anti-spyware Program.
Below is the link for info about it.
And it is compatible with Defender and AVG8

http://www.spybot.info/en/index.html

Spybot Search & Destroy 1.6 is a very good, FREE Anti-Spyware Program.
Download, install, update, and immunize your System with it.
Then SCAN with it.
Update it, and scan your System once a fortnight.

WinDef is a 'real-time' anti-spy (A-S) application and AVG8 is a
'real-time' anti-virus (AV) application; They both work together in
harmony.

Adding additional 'on-demand' A-S and AV application wil not interfer with
the 'real-time' programs.

So, go ahead and install:
Spybot Search & Destroy - Free
http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/index.html
--and-- (if you wish)
SuperAntispyware - Free
http://www.superantispyware.com/supe...freevspro.html

Note: If you ever experience problems with AVG8 (a lot of users have) go
for a good quality alternative such as:
Avira AntiVir® Personal - FREE Antivirus
http://www.free-av.com/
(The free version won't scan your emails.)

Why You Don't Need Your Anti-Virus Program to Scan Your E-Mail
http://thundercloud.net/infoave/tuto...ning/index.htm
Ensure your e-mail program is configured to display e-mail messages in
'Plain Text' only.
You may wish to consider removing the 'AntiVir Nagscreen'

Good luck

AVG, which is an anti-virus program, isn't at issue here. Regarding SS&D and
Defender, which are both anti-spyware programs, yes, you can have both
installed at once. In fact, no single anti-spyware program is anywhere near
good enough, and running two or more is the prudent thing to do.
