Hi all...I'm new here and have a few questions. I have a routine where I clean the computers up once a week...I use Advanced Systemcare3 and in there I found IObit Security...I dowloaded and ran it and it found a few more and I like how easy it was to work...What's the difference between IObit Security and AdAware or Malwarebytes? I don't want to be running too many and conflict with each other. Thanks for any advice or help you can offer. :thumbsup:

On demand scanners will not conflict with each other unless you run them all at once
AdAware is not as good as it once was
