Hi all

It seems there is some confusion to whether SuperAntiSpyware(SAS) and MalwareBytes(MB) are antivirus products. They are NOT.

But some people have other ideas on this matter, so feel free to have a say on this matter.

Good point,Maynard.I have read over and over again,it is acceptable to run only one Antivirus, and multiple Antispyware applications if one wishes.Also not to scan straight after one another.Would be helpful if we knew which of these security Programs runs a true Antivirus,so they dont conflict with one another.Securing our systems, is of utmost importance.IMO.Thanks.

Rule of thumb Dougie

1 Anti Virus product

1 Firewall

It doesn't matter how many malware killers you run.
