There can be conflicts. Best is very subjective. I use malwarebytes because I think it is best. You can keep them all, but only one malware and one antivirus should be running real time.

Dont go with too many security software as that would slow down your system as most of them run realtime. Three software just for spyware is surely not recommended. If you have to choose between the three I would personally recommend either SAS or MWB. Just go with one of them.

As long as they are working, I dont think it shouls cause any issues. Still, instead of using 3 antispyware, remove any one from the list and use only 2. I feel its a bit overkill though.

Here is a basic rule of the thumb. Use one antivirus and one firewall active at a time. (Starts with your computer starting). Use the rest of the programs you have chosen as on demand only. (It does nothing until you tell it to, update, scan ect.) Never scan with more than one program at a time.

I concur with what the others have said about one real-time monitor. However, even though generally not recommended, many people with an Antivirus Suite which includes real-time protection have not had problems with a separate anti-malware program such as MBAM or SAS.

In addition, shutdown/restart the computer between scans.

Hi BeyLIN & welcome.
You say that you have SuperAntiSpyware with licence. That implies that you are running the paid version. Correct?
My recommendation is that you continue to use it. It is a good program with excellent support via email or through their forum.

FYI - I run SAS paid version with Real Time Protection on, plus an Anti Virus program, also with Real Time Protection on.
They are compatible.

Layback Bear & Corrine have also provided you with some good advice.
