hi
i have the following app on my computer
Avira AntiAvir Antivirus
COMODO Firewall
Malwarebytes Anti Malware..

I am planning to install
SuperAntiSpyware and
Spyware Blaster..

a) Is this the right combination ? Will they conflict with each other ?
b) Will it make my system secure enough ? Do i need to install something else along with these ?
c)Whats the differenct between Malwarebytes Anti Malware and SuperAnitSpyware ??

thanks :)

Drop the Spyware Blaster as SuperAntiSpyware will do the job just fine.
Not sure what you mean by secure enough but it has proven to be a good combination to run.
Malwarebytes is for Malware which in some cases includes spyware.
Super is strictly for spyware.

No body can guarantee against infections.
There are more sophisticated and newer virus created everyday.
There is no way to keep up with them in real time.
The combination I have suggested will be the best and in case you do get infected you can always go to the Malware forum and get help from our experts.

I see you have a open malware topic.
If on the 9th you have not received a response then please post in The waiting room with a link to your malware topic.
This should get you help within 24 hours then
