Has anyone heard of this?

If yes, does it really work?

Of course it works, why don't?
By the way try it yourself, and see does it works?

Ok, I guess I didn't make myself clear.

I already use tons of things on my computer. Is it any better than MBAB, SA, or is it some complete package that goes above & beyond spyware & anti virus?

There are no complete protection, there are always the way malware infect you
Best protection is safe surfing and combining utilities
MBAM is a great thing especially pro version
So the best way is to combine...to experience it yourself, because no one can tell you everything
We are here to recommend and it's on you to choose

Hope this help
Enjoy

I know that. I'm not new to the Internet.

Anyway, I'll contact them myself.

Thank you

I'm not an advocate of suites. All-in-one tools and suites generally use more system resources than separate programs that do the same task. They tend to have varying degrees of strengths and weaknesses for each feature. In contrast, separate tools are designed, built and maintained with a greater focus in a specific area so they are generally of better quality. This means the program's performance for that particular feature is usually superior than their all-in-one counterpart. Further, all-in-one tools generally do not allow the user as much flexibility in tailoring default settings and usage.

The Kaspersky product is an anitvirus and firewall suite. It should be used in conjunction with other on demand malware scanners, for layered protection. Yes it works well, for me. I have used Kaspersky products for over 5 years. I have not installed the 2011 version yet.

I don't know what products you are referring to when you say MBAB and SA. If you mean Malwarebytes with saying MBAB, Kaspersky is not a replacement but MBAM should be used in conjunction witj Kaspersky as an on demand scanner. SA for a product has too many possibilities to guess.

With the Pro version you can take advantage of the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Protection Module in the full version which uses advanced heuristic scanning technology to monitor your system and provide real-time protection to prevent the installation of most new malware. This technology runs at startup where it monitors every process and helps stop malicious processes before they can infect your computer. The database that defines the heuristics is updated as often as there is something to add to it. Keep in mind that Malwarebytes does not act as a real-time protection scanner for every file like an anti-virus program so it is intended to be a supplement, not a substitute. The Protection Module is not intrusive as it utilizes few system resources and should not conflict with other scanners or anti-virus programs.

As a general rule, using more than one anti-spyware program like Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, SuperAntispyware, Spybot S&D, Ad-Aware, Spyware Terminator, etc. will not conflict with each other or your anti-virus if using only one of them for real-time protection and others as stand-alone scanners. In fact, doing so increases your protection coverage without causing the same kind of conflicts or affecting the stability of your system that can occur when using more than one anti-virus. The overlap of protection from using different signature databases will aid in detection and removal of more threats when scanning your system for malware. However, competing tools may provide redundant alerts which can be annoying and/or confusing as a result of the overlap in protection.

If using multiple real-time resident shields (TeaTimer, Ad-Watch, MBAM Protection Module, Spyware Terminator Shields, etc.) together at the same time, there can be conflicts when each application tries to compete for resources and exclusive rights to perform an action. They may identify the activity of each other as suspicious and produce alerts. Further, your anti-virus may detect suspicious activity while these programs are scanning (reading) files, especially if it uses a heuristic scanning engine, regardless if they are running in real-time or on demand. The anti-virus may even detect as threats, any malware removed by these programs and placed into quarantined areas. This can lead to a repetitive cycle of endless alerts or false alarms that continually warn a threat has been found if the contents of the quarantine folder are not removed before beginning a new security scan.

Usually if there are conflicts with between Malwarebytes' and another security program, they are reported in the Common Issues, Questions, and their Solutions, FAQs thread.

Sorry, SA stands for SuperAntiVirus.

And you were correct on MBAB.

Then what's the purpose of it if I still have to have all these other pieces of software?

But I would think if they are scanning at different times it wouldn't cause problems.

I have now decided b/c of all the problems w/ my computer that I have to pay for each of these pieces of software which will make them all "in real time", so I hope they won't cause problems.

I have SA, MBAB & I may get the license to SBSD. I've had that on my computer forever, but always forget to update hence it being useless.

Thanks


Michelle
