I have always had Malwarebytes on the pc which is updated daily. After the pc was cleaned up with the generous help of the techs on theis site, I had been curious as to whether malwarebytes was enough. I installed a trial version of superantispyware and was surprised that it came up with five pieces of malware (ads). Is is better to keep both security programs on the pc or just one of them? Is superantispyware the better of the two?

Hi. :)

I installed a trial version of superantispyware and was surprised that it came up with five pieces of malware (ads)

Most likely they were tracking cookies and easy enough to flush them periodically using TFC - Temp File Cleaner by OldTimer.

Is superantispyware the better of the two?

SUPERAntiSpyware has a component/incorporated feature named Bootsafe, if ever used on a infected machine it can render it little more than a expensive door stop! Plus to be honest my personal opinion about the software is it is little more than a waste of installation space and far from effective these days as a Anti-Malware application...

I will further add in all the years I have been providing online Anti-Malware support; have never advised the use(deployed) of the application. My friendly advice is you consider uninstalling it, though that is your call.

Overall as long as you follow the advice provided in the topic you mentioned that will go a long way towards ensuring the security of your machine.
