Malwarbytes, is the best of all that you mentioned for pups
What I do, too, is use the free eset free online scan.
There is no download. You just go to the website and scan.
It catches a lot of stuff.

I've been lucky to date. Nothing found with avast or Malwarebytes worth being concerned over. That's good to know you can just go to the site and scan.

If you never had a problem, that means you use common sense too. The software cannot catch everything; good for you.

My old XP machine was constantly hit with something. It wasn't the most secure computer I've ever had for sure. I still have it but never go on the Internet with it anymore.
