malwarebytes,and super anti spyware may fight if they are both active at the same time...disable one and then just use it as a scan on demand tool...I used spybot search and destroy for years but I no longer use it or install on clients computers...to buggy and finds and removes only a small percentage of malware...
also remove (uninstall) spyware guard....it has bogged systems down in the past

all the others are ok and play well with each other
