In addition to ESET Smart Security, I also utilize MalwareBytes and Superantiware. I read about Sybot Search and Destroy. My question....What is the difference between MalwareBytes, Superantispyware and Sybot Search and Destroy ? Is installing the other three necessary, or overkill ?

All you really need is MSE & Spywareblaster.

Use FREE Ccleaner also.

The rest is just "gumming up" your machine for no purpose.
