Super anti spyware or MalwareBytes?

I want to know which one is better for real-time protection.
SAS or MB?

Suggestion: Microsoft Security Essentials provides real-time protection for your PC that guards against viruses, spyware, and other malicious software. And it's free. Use Malwarebytes and SuperAntispyware free versions for periodic on-demand scans.

I have read your reply from the other thread. You don't need real-time protection from SAS or MBAM because MSE provides real-time protection against viruses and other malware while running in the background. Scan your PC occasionally with SAS or MBAM, run them like normal programs.

I already use MSE.
but im not sure if I should use MSE only... that's why I use SAS real time also.

So I just wanna ask if you had to choose between them what would you choose?

Hi, BDani.

Although the general recommendation is only one real-time program monitoring your computer to prevent conflicts, there are many people who do prefer a second monitor. If you have a licensed version of either SAS or MBAM, see if you have any ill-effects with the real-time protection activated. However, I would strongly advise you not to have both real-time in addition to MSE.

Another option, my favorite, is WinPatrol. (You can read about a few of the features at WinPatrol Features) WinPatrol is free for personal use and has a licensed version available as well.

BDani,
I use both MBAM and SAS along with MSE.
MSE on all the time and do a weekly scan.
The other two I do an update and then do a monthly scan just in case a bug slips by MSE. IMHO

(@THW -- yes, but not with real-time protection turned on for both MBAM & SAS. BDani wants to have real-time protection in addition to that provided by MSE.)
