Live Onecare and Adaware

Posted: 12-13-2008, 12:40 PM
I am using windows Live Oncare. I also like to use other antispyware,
usually because I have found that only one program is usually not enough to
capture all spyware. However, Live Onecare reports that Adaware may
interfere. I use the free version so it is not performing realtime
protection, just on demand scans. Does anyone know if this is truly a
problem or just Microsoft pouting about me using a competitor program?

AdAware installs a loads a service that conflicts with OneCare, causing crashes
in the OneCare program. Lavasoft even acknowledged the problem on their forums -
sorry, I don't have a link to that handy.
