Is Superantispyware free any good?

I use Avira Free and Malwarebytes and now I am considering downloading the free version of Superantispyware. Is the free version worth using along side my other two programs?

This is just my personal experience but SuperAntiSpyware is good at finding stuff where MWB rarely does.

Yes.
SuperAntiSpyware is a well respected program worthy of your consideration.
It will help protect you against Spyware, Adware, Trojans, Dialers, Worms, KeyLoggers, HiJackers, Parasites, Rootkits, Rogue Security Products and will remove Malware.

I was told the free version does not do much compared to the pay version. Is this true? I would hate to have the program tell me I have threats but then not remove them unless I pay.

The program is 100% free and is fully functional... it will clean anything it finds and will not nag you to purchase the pro version .... Try it, you'll like it!!

Thanks for the info,Tews.


Last question: I am going to disable the program from starting when windows starts because I want to use it as a on-demand scanner. Is that ok?

Thats how I use Malwarbytes
