hey everyone. from what i read on the internet it is a good idea to have super antispyware along with malwarebytes. do you recommend this? i use mbam for real time and use sas for a manual scan once in a while to check for things that might have been missed. i also use avast. any input or thoughts?

 

 

thanks everyone.

For general usage, both will run beside each other, and I post links for both.

MBAM  always seems to be the preferred program, but SAS is fully listed in BC Downloads.

 

Generally the FAQ is linked or advised in most cases, and some even run both active versions.

 

I do not say that this is a "great" idea, but it can be done with some care -

 

Minor clashes during scan times can occur, so just do not accept both Pro Trial Versions -

SUPERAntiSpyware Free does not provide real-time protection, auto-Scanning, auto-updates or scheduled scanning so there is no need for it to run at startup and waste system resources. However, when installing SUPERAntiSpyware it installs to run at each start-up automatically. I recommend to disable its' startup and use it as a separate stand-alone on-demand scanner.

If you right-click on the tray icon, select View Control Center (Preferences/Options)... to open Scanning and Program Preferences Start-Up Options, there is an option to Uncheck "Start SUPERAntiSpyware when Windows starts."

Is that what you did and SUPERAntiSpyware is still starting?

What is the benefit in running both SAS and Malwarebytes? Is SAS able to detect malware that Malwarebytes cannot?

In some cases yes and vice versa. All scanning engines are different and search for/remove detections based on the vendor's criteria. What one scanner misses, another may find. Read Supplementing your Anti-Virus Program with Anti-Malware Tools.
