It shouldn't, but try it and let us or SpyShelter know if they do.
Is SpyShelter compatible with my anti-virus?
We do our best to keep SpyShelter compatible with as many security applications as possible. Best way to find out if it is compatible with 3rd party security software is to simply install it and SpyShelter together. We cannot guarantee compatibility on a daily basis since each system is different and applications are constantly updated. We encourage our users to test compatibility of SpyShelter with other software. However, keep in mind that using more than one real time protection software might cause some conflicts in your system!

I haven't noticed any problems yet.
I am running webroot secureanywhere, qihoo 360 with all engines enabled, and spyshelter free. and also malwarebytes anti-exploit premium.

strange thing is, that it didn't.
I couldn't see much difference in cpu or ram usage.
but my computer didn't go to sleep automatically after 30 minutes like it is supposed to. It also seemed to impact the responsiveness a little.

They do not conflict but I would rather run WSA over Qihoo. Do you really need a multi engine when you have WSA and the rest of your tools at your disposal?

I just avoid the whole problem by restoring from a system image that I try to remember to make before I play around with things too much. The restore goes pretty quick with macrium reflect paid versions

I read that qihoo gives top malware detection only if you enable bitdefender and avira engines.
Unfortunately, I have noticed that it updates those particular virus definitions really slow. It can be really behind.

I would have kept qihoo, webroot is weak in some areas and a pain when it finds something and scans the system all over again,just my 2 cents.
you mean the quick speed scan as opposed to traditional 10+ minutes one? Granted webroot identifies an infection, has the roll back feature, aside from lightness and a decent cloud service.
There is no need to rely on multi engines for RT.

Agree but the quick speed scan is not always quick with some data. I found it to be annoying each time it found something.If you look at the malware samples on here for tests webroot is weak in many tests, but to each his own.

just cause an AV solution has near 90% or over detection rate on malware samples, these do not translate into Real World.

I believe this has been proven on many forums including MT.

WSA is fine as it is, so is WD and even McAfee for example.

Well actually that increase may only brought as decimal places up to 2% estimation perhaps, cause their Cloud engine/In-house is such reliable.
BD and Avira detects same threats that can not help to determine any premature samples unless analyzed/informed to them.
