can you use malewarebytes and spybot S&D as on demand scanners with Norton Products?

Not to keep them as active antispyware products but to use on demand to scan

Also are these two items malewarebytes and SB S&D antivirus or anti spyware?

I have SB S&D on my machine but where do i get malewarebytes from?

thanks in advance

Hi, 12owen8,

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware is fine to have installed on your computer next to Norton Products, as long as it is the free Version, as the Paid Version adds Real-Time Protection, which would clash with Norton.

Not sure about "SB S&D Anti-Virus/Anti-Spyware"...

kind of new here, so please don't take my suspicion personally. But is that link ygiven a legit link??  isn't there one for malewarebytes itself?

Also, can any confirm that it would be ok to also use SP S&D as an on demand scanner?

Yes it's Legit.; that is where you are taken to from the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Web Site to Download the Product anyway.  Would you like me to provide that Web Link to the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Web Site?

Hi 12Owen8,

Malwarebytes' website is:

http://www.malwarebytes.org/

Spybot Search & Destroy is also an on-demand scanner and does not conflict with Norton.  You should leave the Tea Timer function disabled, however, as that blocks registry changes and will cause issues in some situations.

Malwarebytes doesn't distribute from its own site.  The link I use is from MBAM site but they use other providers like CNET.com to handle the downloads.  I can give you that one if you prefer it and already have a CNET account.  I'm quite certain that Floating Reds site is equally safe.

http://www.malwarebytes.org

Spybot S & D can be used as on-demand provided Teatimer is not included or enabled.  The problem with S&D is that if you are unfortunate enough to get a rootkit infection, it will prevent the removal of the rootkit.  It always has to be removed before any remediation can be undertaken.  This makes it less desirable in my humble opinion.

Just to clarify: That's the Web Link I've given.
