Hi everyone,

iv been using SuperAntiSpyware for many years now along with Malwarebytes. AVG, JRT and Adware Removal tool. I always run these in this order

Adware removal tool

and often find that SAS will find and remove items that the other software didn't. iv noticed that no one really suggests or recommends SAS on this forum much, iv been reading through some of the security threads and haven't seen it mentioned.

I was just wondering if there was a reason for this? I became aware of SAS from this site many years ago and find it very good. Just wondered if there was something I didn't know about or perhaps the community here wasn't aware of this software?

I use SuperAntiSpyware, as well as MWB. In fact neither of them have found much on my own computers in recent years. There was a time that MWB seemed to find more than SuperAntiSpyware though.

Wait for other views but I would carry on the way you are - you never know when one program finds what another one can miss.

I would also run ADWCleaner from time to time too. That it better than MWB at finding browser malware and often does. It's a "stand-alone file" and they are always replacing it with an updated version. Keep it in downloads and when run it prompts you to download a new file if necessary:

JRT is similar (and can find different things) but it does not let you choose what it removes:

I haven't used SAS in years. I gave up on AVG as well. It used to be a good product but eventually became bloatware. I don't know what it's like these days but I see the free version tips the scales at over 250MB. BitDefender Free is only 10MB.

BitDefender runs in real time. I only use MWB, SAS and others on demand.

I really like AVG, over the years they seems to have improved the GUI and performance, when I first started using it I found that it sometimes hogged a lot of system resources but they have definitely improved that. I do agree that there are some additions that come with the paid version of AVG that are useless such as the "performance analyser" "driver updater" I just switch them off or dueing install use the customized installation method to not install them.

AVG is also updated very often sometime 3 or 4 times a day and the updates are so small they download and install in no time at all. The real time protection is very fast and does not impact the system performace much at all.

in terms of SAS I'd really recommend it, when I get machines to repair/disinfect the above mentioned tools do such a good job of removing the infections but SAS goes an extra step and removes PUPS that the other apps didn't remove.

Good to hear your opinions though guys I think I will continue to use SAS and hopefully it will be recommended here by the experts as it is a very useful tool
