Questions about Tarun's new "method"

Recommended Posts

Tarun, wouldn't running adaware and spybot cause problems when scanning the system? such as them finding the same file, then one will delete it and the other wont be able to find it to delete it anymore... if its not a problem, wouldn't running both at the same time bog down the system considerably? And I always run Adaware twice, because it seems to pick up some on the second run.. or has that changed lately?(i haven't had a spyware problem in over a year thanks to this forum mostly).

so do you find this more efficient or faster? i would think that because both programs tend to use a large amount of memory, that it would bog down an older system to an almost standstill, but if you ran one after the other, they would be running at full speed.... i duno, just my thoughts

I've done the same on very slow and old machines at work with no issues or drawbacks, but positive results. Two scanning at once is faster than one at a time.

Makes sense. It's just that I already have the AdAware VX2 plugin, I was wondering if that was sufficient. I guess I'll find out if I ever have to remove VX2.

I'm curious, do you not boot to safe mode for your removal procedure?

Generally it depends on if I am at the machine or I have remotely accessed it. Usually I do not bother with safe mode and do the scans from the Admin account and a quick scan in each user account.
