I would use SuperAntiSpyware in addition to Malwarebytes, they both tend to find different item

MBAM finds pretty much any kind of infection. Malware just refers to malicious software, which can be anything that is bad for your computer.

I have seen many instances of Malwarebytes scans coming up clean and the scan done right after by SuperAntiSpyware not coming up clean.

Thanks! I have both the programs now. What I've seen is that SuperAntiSpyware takes a while to scan my system, while taking Malwarebytes about 10 minutes. I dunno if it's just me or not. Btw, should I run 'quicky' scans or full scans with those spyware programs?
