Malwarebytes or Superantispyware?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Has anyone used malwarebytes or superantispyware. I read they were good to do a malware sweep.

Malwarebytes ran and didn't find anything bad.

Superantispyware found tracking cookies and I told it to get rid of them. It said a restart was needed. Then Windows wouldn't start and I had to do a system restore to get it to load.

I use both personally, though if I had to chose, I would pick Malwarebytes. I've never heard of a problem with SAS screwing up a computer though, makes me think twice about using it so much.

Emsisoft Anti-malware. It'll find more stuff then both of those two. It's a three day trial though.

Malwarebytes > SAS hands down

SAS telling you it found cookies is like windows telling you it found a web browser installed...

Im a technician, i remove viruses on a daily basis. I run superantispyware and malwarebytes at the same time, that and some combofix.. Not a single virus/malware will get past this combination.

Malwarebytes ftw, I wouldn't worry too much about low risk cookies. I think there is one that Microsoft gives you (admt) that you can't get rid of, It comes right back no matter what you do.rolleyes.gif

I found that SAS found some things that Malware Bytes let past and Malware Bytes found things SAS let past. The two together + Microsoft Security Essentials would decimate all. biggrin.gif

I stopped using SAS though and I'm pretty pleased with MB and MSE.

Thank you much for the info.

By the way I also have Microsoft Security Essentials running on the normal. I just wanted to run MB and SAS once in a while to catch anything that MSE might miss.

I work at a computer repair place on my college campus and we scan with both MWB and SAS and we've never had the issue you're describing. But they always find any malware or infections on the computer. great programs, just make sure you update them before you scan!

Running 2 programs at the same time that designed to do the same thing, just eats up your resourses. NO program will find everything. The best practice is to have ONE of the programs running, and Scan regularlly with the other.
