AVG / AdAware conflict?

I use the free AVG anti-virus program. I've been advised to download AdAware and SpyBot to clean out a lot of unwanted stuff.

My question is will any of these programs conflict?

I've used SVG once and had a problem with it too. Since then I've used comodo free anti-virus/firewall on my PC and LapTop with no problems and no conflicts.

I use Avast with either CCleaner or SpywareBlaster. Stopped using AVG a few years ago when I realized it was getting as swollen as Symantic in code and resource requirements. It also failed to stop the '2000 antivirus' virus, had to buy a removal tool to get rid of that nasty little piece of code.
Comodo has somewhat mixed reviews but is still considered a good system by most.

Like Ringle, I use Avast.
But when I did have AVG I never had any problems with Spybot.
I never used Adware. I just use AdBlockerPlus and Stop-Script add-ons for Firefox, so I never even have to see potentially dangerous ads

They will not conflict unless you get the pro version of Ad Aware and want to use AdWatch, which is a real time monitoring function. Even then all that will really happen is your computer will slow down. You should also try a couple of the other programs selected, as nothing finds everything.

Also you can save the hassle and frustration of using No-Script simply by adding Ghostery and Adblock with Firefox and get the same protection results. I also use the WOT add-on (Web of Trust), it's great when you're doing a search.
