Malwarebytes Anti-Malware protects against adware and spyware. The Premium (Pro) version includes a real-time Protection Module that uses advanced heuristic scanning technology to monitor your system and provide real-time protection to prevent the installation of most new malware, stopping malware distribution at the source.

I recommend using SUPERAntiSpyware Free as a separate stand-alone on-demand scanner. The free version does not provide real-time protection or scheduled scanning so there is no need for it to run at startup and waste system resources. This gives you another tool to use as a second opinion or in the event of malware infection where some of your tools may be disabled.

I also recommend using SpywareBlaster and WinPatrol.

If you have not done so already, you may want to read:
