Yes,I also think so,
Version 1.35 is the last which I was able to find,but I always use it with resident protection,and as far I can remember,I was always very satisfied with it.It is fast,confident and reliable,when Spybot slows my PC from time to time(it increase CPU usage without any obvious reason,as I can see),and I'm really glad that I install Malwarebytes again,and that it makes me no problems with updates as in last few days when I have use it.
About antivirus,I have download Mcaffe Total Protection beta already,and will try it,and if I won't be satisfied,I'll try Avira.Thanks on that one,too.I tried Avira suite with firewall before,just tried,and I really can't remember why I uninstalled it,I think because of firewall but I'm not sure.

Here come the final results:
-8 worms/trojan/viruses
-1 fake driver
-1 corrupted registry key

Shame on me,the answer was in front of my eyes(Malwarebytes),and I didn't see it.

It would be no harm to run it a second time,I know it found all that ,but just to be on the safe side.

Yep,I ran it second time,and it finished scan a lot faster(29 minutes),and didn't find anything.McAfee is running fine so far,and I can connect to TrendMicro,so I hope everything will be alright now.
