Windows 7: Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware RTP

I'd not run MBAM & SAS RTP together..
Even if you have them in their respective ignore list, running 3 RTPs will sooner or later, cause conflictions. An eg. is that i keep allowing prompts from ZA firewall to install catalyst driver, but it didn't until I shut down ZA.
Suppose if malwarebytes catch a malware and at the same time the other 2 also catch it's presence, then they all will compete for its removal causing serious conflicts or suppose if just malwarebytes caught it, then sas and norton will see mbam's deleting of another object as potentially malicious action and you can imagine whats next.
Its like in the fight of three, the threat escaped.
IMO, one should have atmost, 2 RTP, more than enough. 3 will be like overkill.

Now what it comes down to is:

Should I buy them?

I already have Norton AV running as well as D+ from Comodo.

I'll probably disable the RTP since it's bad to have more than 1 running at the same time.

But having that Auto Scan/Update will be beneficial in the long run since I'll most likely forget to Scan/Update On-Demand
I recommend getting the Pro version of Malwarebytes because its very good at detecting rogues and it has the IP Block list which blocks alot of bad sites. I say buying a pro version of SAS is a waste of $$. If you wanna spend money on another security program, i suggest buying Hitman Pro. Its very good at detecting and removing all kind of malwares. Also you do not have to update the database since it's in the cloud, which you will always have an up-to-date database and it has a very fast scan.

+1 For Hitman Pro! While doing Malware scans of software before transferring it from the virtual space of Sandboxie to the 'real' computer using the context menu scanners of both Malwarebytes and Hitman Pro on several occasions I've seen Hitman Pro (free version) find Malware in Sandboxed software that Malwarebytes (free version) had completely missed!

Hitman Pro uses around 5-6 anti-virus. Chances of it missing something is slim to none. a combo of sandboxie + hitman pro is almost bullet proof.

Malwarebytes Pro works great.

Add in the use of Virus Total's 43 Malware Scanners for all downloads from the virtual sandbox under 20 MB and Malwarebytes' context menu scanner and that's just what I use and I haven't seen so much as a tracking cookie detected on either of my computers since I started using Sandboxie 2 years ago even though I haven't used an Antivirus software in ages!

MaxxWire, quick question for you. When i first boot-up Comodo it says My PC is about to join a new Network. Is this my Home Network? I keep clicking cancel since I don't know what it is.

Yes it is. Have you used the Comodo Stealth ports Wizard to block all incoming connections and make your computer's ports stealth for everyone?

No I haven't. I just did a Reformat. So all I did was Install it, Put D+ in Training Mode and updated it (several times actually)
