It is safe and even recommended that multiple spyware programs be run in tandem After all, one program might detect what another program misses if new spyware is released

Remember to create a system restore point and back-up your data so that if by chance you do run into a problem, you will have taken protective measures to return your system back to it’s original state before running Microsoft’s beta download for spy ware
