I came from admuncher and want to know if I have to use stuff like:

ghostery and disconnect

:confused: Or can I delete it because Adguard filtered it too :confused:

There are no conflicts between them and Adguard but in my opinion you don't need them. Adguard does the same work better.

I still strongly recommended ghostery to privacy aware users, AdGuard has the wrong approach/concept - especially for social media!
Whilst Ghostery blocks all and you allow e.g. Facebook (or Disqus, Twitter, ...) on the few sites where you want to read e.g. a discussion AG allows all and you have to block it per site (user filter).
IMHO a pretty wrong way to operate (in matters of privacy).
