All-In-One Anti-Malware Suites

However, Emsisoft Anti-Malware and Malwarebytes are the most effective and the tools I would recommend.

HitmanPro BleepingComputer Review

HitmanPro is an anti-virus program that describes itself as a second opinion scanner that should be used in conjunction with another anti-virus program that you may already have installed. If malware slips past your anti-virus software, HitmanPro will then step in to detect it. Though SurfRite bills themselves as a second opinion scanner that does not mean that you cannot use the program as your primary anti-virus product. This is because its scanning technology not only incorporates its own virus definitions but also has the ability to scan files on your computer with the definitions of 5 other anti-virus vendors.

A strong feature of HitmanPro is its Scan Cloud feature. This feature comes into play when HitmanPro detects a suspicious file that they are unsure of. When a suspicious file is detected, HitmanPro will upload the file to their cloud where it will then be scanned by 5 other anti-virus vendors. Using the scan results from these vendors, HitmanPro will then decide when or not that file should be classified as malware and removed. This approach is very effective as it allows a more thorough approach to detecting new malware.

HitmanPro also includes the ability to create a bootable USB drive that contains HitmanPro.Kickstart. Kickstart is a full featured version of HitmanPro that can be run directly from the bootable USB drive. This makes it very useful for removing stubborn infections, such as Ransomware, that corrupt Windows Safe Mode or disable your ability to access the Windows Desktop.

Yes if that were my only option....choose one or the other.

I recommend using SUPERAntiSpyware Free as a separate stand-alone on-demand scanner. The free version 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, it does offer technology to deal with some rootkit infections so it gives you another tool to use as getting a second opinion or in the event of malware infection where some of your tools may be disabled. During installation you can uncheck any offers to upgrade to the paid version or for free toolbars if you do not want them.
