can you have to many spyware scanners?

Recommended Posts

Hello,everyone, my question is this can you have too many anti spyware/malware scanners? I have of course superantisypware malware bytes spybot search and destroy hitman pro.

Each scan with each of them comes up with different results.

Hi Joe,


It all depends on the variables. If for example you are running one in Real Time and the others as 'on demand' scanners then no there is nothing wrong with that method to cover you R's.


However, if you are running multiple in Real Time that's when things become complicated as conflicts can arise resulting in False Positives, System Hangs/Crashes, Blue Screens etc.


Each product will no doubt throw up a slightly different result based upon the way they've been designed to scan.


Did you have a particular issue that needs addressing?
