I use Avast! anti virus but now I am trying to know which anti spyware/malware etc.. So what do you recommend superantispyware,spybot? I am not interested in Malwarebytes because I do not like it.

Personally I like Malwarebytes, but Superantispyware is my second choice and I feel equally as good. Spybot like many of those that were good in their early iterations has become bloated and interfering.

'I am not interested in Malwarebytes because I do not like it'

What is your justification for the above statement?

Please tell us any problems you have had with Mbam, we would be pleased to look into them

Malwarebytes is a very respected program here and the free version will suffice for your needs

In addition, with SAS and MSE as mentioned above, you should be well protected

Well, a good friend of mine was cleaning up his friend's computer and MBAM didn't pick up anything but SAS and Spybot did. So I guess I am going with SAS.

Go with both, but don't run them at the same time. And update before you run.
