I am trying to rid my self of the TkinkPoint virus. Is it OK to run Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and SUPERAntiSpyware at the same time to save time since each full scan runs for over 2 hrs.
Would these two program interfere if run simultaneously?

I'm moving your topic to the Am I Infected forum. We have a removal guide for this infection here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-thinkpoint

In answer to your question, no please do not run both those programs at the same time. It would eat up too many resources. In addition, MBAM is designed to run best in Normal Mode and SAS works best in Safe Mode.
