Windows 7: Running Bitdefender Tot Seq 2013 & SuperAntiSpyware - Good or Bad?

Running Bitdefender Tot Seq 2013 & SuperAntiSpyware - Good or Bad?

I did a lot of research regarding the best AV sweet, and I found Bitdefender rated highest in several reviews, so that is what I bought.

I also have SuperAntiSpyware Pro, and would like to use with Bitdefender, but am concerned that they may conflict. Many say that SAS is Spyware, and not an AV, so it shouldn't be a problem. I am given to understand that the free version of SAS is on demand only, and hence not an issue, but I want to run the Pro version live.

Will this cause any issues?

Thanks for any and all help,
Herk

That's OK. Bitdefender is an excellent AV suite, SAS is a scanner. They should not get into each other's hair.

Hi Herk,
I have Avast paid ver. along with SAS Pro. MBAM Pro. no conflicts at all !

The Avast is coming up for renewal in a couple of months and seriously considering switching to Bitdefender.

What version do you have and how do you like it so far ?

I am running Bitdefender Total Security 2013, and so far a like it a lot. The install exe, starts the downlod from the internet, which has gone smoothly, all three times that I have installe it, it doesn't seem to slow down the system much if at all, and I like the dash board. I really can't speak to how good it is, or isn't yet, as I have only run two complete scans, and they have both come back clean, and that is after donig a bit of internet work from within my Admin User Account.

Based on the info here, especially from, I will now go ahead and nstall SAS Pro, run it live, and see how thing go. Again, I have been imaging my system at each new install or major settings change, so If anything does get in, I can always go directly back to the last image.

BTW, I am using EaseUS Todo BackUp for my syestem backup imaging, and it works very simply and flawlessley. It is a great piece of freeware.

I will post back after using the multiple systems awhile.

Thanks guys.

SAS is currently struggling, and that is a massive understatement. If I were you, I would simply stick to BD 2013. It is a good suite and will serve you well.

Here are a couple of 3rd party reviews:

And an amatuer YT demo (released today) of how the product may or may not act when encountering malware:

You need to decide if it is worth the extra resources, slowdowns, configuring, ect... vs the limited extra protection.
