Those three all work fine together, NO One Antispyware program catches every thing, so having 3 wont hurt one little bit.

Depends what it does in ST.

If its like teatimer, it can block things.

And you'll have probs

I've got mine enabled, as it does protect you if something tries to install, bit like prevention is better than cure.

Only times I find it a pain, is when installing programs it sometimes pops up blocking them from installing (which its meant to do) so if installing I right click the icon in the tray / Exit (disable) - then reboot after installing the program which turns it back on (old habits die hard from 98 ) :p OR open it from the "All Programs".

When using Spyware Terminator I just use its Install Mode, generally a prompt appears automatically. :)

I use a mixture of Malwarebytes Antimalware, Spybot Search and Destroy and Ad-Aware along with some Firefox addons - cookiesafe and noscript.

I havent had an issue for a long, long time.
