I see SpywareGuard 2.2 touted as a good free real-time antimalware app that makes a great compliment to SpywareBlaster. But can anyone confirm that for me, and that it's definitely a different app than Spyware Guard 2008 & 2009? It had better be, because the latter is said to actually be a sophisticated rogue antispyware. Check these links out:

And assuming SpywareGuard 2.2 is OK, will it run with Avast Free Antivirus 5.0.418?

Spyware Guard 2008 and Spyware Guard 2009 ARE infections and have no relationship with the actual product SpywareGuard from Javacool. As they say on their own page about this product

If you are worried about potential compatibility issues with SpywareGuard, we recommend that you download SpywareBlaster instead - our no-nonsense, polished anti-spyware solution.

There's your answer, straight from the developer. Stick with SpywareBlaster.

If I were you, I would keep it as simple as I could. Find yourself a good Anti-Virus program, a good firewall and a decent (read Opera) browser, safe surf and you should be ok.
A real-time anti-malware program can be useful, but I have not found the need personally.
