SUPERAntiSpyware Free does not provide real-time protection or scheduled scanning so there is no need for it to run at startup. I recommend to disable startup and use it as a separate stand-alone on-demand scanner
. A purchased upgrade to the "Professional" version is required before those options can be activated. If that is what you are using, then as RedDawn
says, there should not be any conflicts.
However, IMO if you want real-time protection to supplement your anti-virus, I recommend Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (Pro)
which includes a Protection Module
in the full version that uses advanced heuristic scanning technology
to monitor your system and provide 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
. Keep in mind that this feature does not guarantee something will not slip through as no product can detect and prevent every type of malware. The database that defines the heuristics is updated as often as there is something to add to it. Also 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
. Enabling the Protection Module
feature requires registration and purchase of a license key
that includes free lifetime upgrades and support. After activation, Malwarebytes can be set to update itself and schedule scans automatically on a daily basis. The Protection Module is not intrusive as the program utilizes few system resources and should not conflict with other scanners or anti-virus programs.
If any conflicts between Malwarebytes' and another security program are reported, suggested solutions are usually provided in the Common Issues, Questions, and their Solutions, FAQs
thread. I know and have worked with some members of the research team so I can attest that they make every effort to resolve issues as quickly as possible.
