Be sure and get back with us. I looked into SAS Pro but all they take for payments is credit card which I will not use.

Your welcome Jack. If you haven't already checkout the new Webroot SecureAnywhere product which is designed to work along side other AV. It's the next generation of Prevx and has good detection scores with minimal impact on resources.
Webroot finished first or second in every review I saw!! I will check it out. Although I have already paid for SAS Pro and MBE Pro.

I've never heard or seen anything about this. What is the nature of the complaints about the paid version?

Hi,

I agree with ignatz.

The only difference between the FREE and PAID version of Malwarebyes is residency, automatic updates, a scheduler, and a malicious IP blocker. The scanning engine, and the ability to detect and remove malware, is exactly the same in both versions.

Regards,
Golden

Hi Jack,

I run MBAM and SAS (free editions) smoothly with MSE & Comodo Internet Security.

It finds stuff which MBAM and MSE doesn't.

It is a good piece of security.

Most of the users from SevenForums recommend it a lot of the time.

I have both SAS Pro and MBAM Pro running in real time together (along with Avast), with no issues. A Guy

Malwarebytes is an excellent program and I use its free version regularly. However the point is that how many times have you been beset with malware since you started using Super Antispyware Pro.

If the answer is never then in my opinion Super Antispyware Pro is doing a good job and there is no need to install a multitude of Anti-Malware programs.

Different antimalware programs, like different AV programs, will find or miss things the other might not. I always think it's good to have at least a 2nd opinion. Will it be overkill? Possibly, but if it causes no problems, it is good peace of mind IMHO. A Guy

I call using a few programs as layered protection. It's like having 3 locked doors before someone can get into the house and each door having a different locks. If you computer works properly with extra protection I not use it.
