Spybot -- Ad-Aware

Posted: 07-28-2008, 04:48 PM

Hello everyone,
I had just updated my Ad-Aware from 2007 version to 2008 version ( free
). I started the Spybot and the following warning appeared : ( see
screenshot link )

'ImageGrotto: Free Image and Screenshot Hosting'
(http://imagegrotto.com/view-Capture19051.JPG)

Basically it warned of possible incompatibility between the 2.
I had no such warning with the 2007 version, and I can't get my 2007
version back. So, should I just ignore the warning ? Thank you.

Hi T-4-2,

I would just ignore it to. I had both running on my system without any
problems.

I concur...ignore it. But I would give SuperAntiSpyware a try and also
Malwarebytes Antimalware...they seem to have superceded Spybot and
AdAware for effectiveness.

I recieved that same pop-up. Click the link, It will take you to Spybots
web page where you will get info about the incompatibility. I can't
recall what it says now, and I can't find the page, but I remember it
was something insignificant.

I'll second [locoeng] comments on SUPERAntiSpyware & Malwarebytes
Antimalware superseding SpyBot and Ad-Aware for effectiveness.
