    It is an antispyware application that has some features to actively protect your computer. It will not conflict with Norton and is a good product.

    Spybot S&D (free version requires manual updating)

    http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/

    Here are some other antispyware applications you may want to look at:

    SuperAntispyware

    http://superantispyware.com/

    AVG AntiSpyware

    http://free.grisoft.com/doc/20/lng/us/tpl/v5

    Adaware from Lavasoft (free version requires automatic updating)

    http://www.lavasoftusa.com/products/ad_aware_free....

    (These programs can be run in Safe Mode after installation and updating)

    This is also free and requires you to check for and enable updates manually once a week or so. It uses no system resources. It blocks spyware before it installs.

    SpywareBlaster (inoculates, not a spyware removal tool)

    I ran spybot with Nortons for several years. The only problems I had was Nortons Auto-update feature, which inexplicably blew up. I reinstalled the Nortons updater and all was well.

    I also ran Ad-Aware PE / 2007, SuperAntiSpyware at the same time (with Nortons) without any problems.

    Hope this helps

    Spybot search and destroy is a malware/spyware removal program. It should be compatible with Norton and if it isn't then it's Norton's fault. It's not that good a product.
