So I'm deciding which one to get between SUPERAntiSpyware or PC Tools Spyware Doctor. Any help would be appreciated.

Never used either. Is there any reason you're avoiding Malwarebytes?

I am using Malwarebytes at the same time. Though I'm paranoid and that's why I'm installing a bunch of crap haha :)

You didn't mention if you're up for paid solutions, but Malwarebytes + Nod32 = Safe :)

If you are really serious, then pay for sandboxie.

Paid version is better because it force sandboxes the browser exe's when ever they are open. So you can't accidently open a browser session via a different app and then forget you are unstandbox.

I always liked SuperAntispyware better. PCtools always felt REALLY heavy and always tended to really slow a machine down.

So like someone said, malwarebytes paid + Av is good and then just do a superantispyware free scan every once and a while.

ALL you need is ONLY MALWAREBYTES pro... I download warez, torrents, porn, surf porn, and malwarebytes 100% success. I also clean up others peoples machines from them downloading warez, torrents, porn, surfing porn as well with 100% success ratio. Its all you need... really. Anyone tells you that you need more are probably wearing a tinfoil hat. Before the last 4 years, used malwarebytes free with avira for my machine, the machines i serviced and sold, but after going Pro, dropped Avira and never had to look back.. ever.

edit: I do ocassinally (after 4 years it seems 100% unnecessary) do scans with other suites JUST incase (including superantispy) but have not once had malwarebytes miss anything.
