Do you use SUPERAntiSpyware?
No - it fails nearly all MRG tests
I use portable version, it does not create startup/background proccess like Malwarebytes Antimalware Free.
oh! portable version....forgot to add that option......
No. I don't support products from certain developers.
I have the freeware version of it on my notebook & have been using it for over three years. I know that there have been concerns about it of late. I usually use it as an alternative on-demand scanner for anything I download. I tend to trust it as it once found a trojan that had slipped through SpywareBlaster & had also been missed by Norton & SpyBot. I never totally got on with MBAM.
Same here. I removed the paid version more than a few years ago.
no.. not needed now
I run the PRO version on demand and MBAM PRO real time. SAS has helped clear some heavy duty trojans from my kids pc.
I run the PRO version, only to check downloads. Also, check downloads with Emsisoft AM, too. Both, on demand, only.
Yes, the PRO version on all five of my computers.
I've used it as a scanner about 3 years ago. There are too many test results showing it isn't competitive even as a second opinion scanner.
No- I have other similar software: Emsisoft Antimalware Free.
For cleaning up it's helpful - the portable version is nice.
If you don't mind me asking, & just out of curiosity, how many test results is too many? I've never been swayed that much by test results as they are not always that conclusive IMO. From what I have read SAS is usually recommended along with MBAM. Although MBAM is considered to have more efficacy in finding malware, SAS is not considered particularly far behind it. I never totally got on with MBAM & I am considering a possible alternative on-demand scanner to SAS. I can't see me uninstalling SAS in a great hurry though.
NO,still have license but not needed with current setup. UNINSTALLED
The first link is particularly telling.
I did use it at one time. But after running my own tests I found Malwarebytes, Hitman Pro, and Emsisoft superior to it.
With my current setup i don't really consider that i need it.
OK, thanks. That's some food for thought.
Yeah right SAS catches harmful/tracking cookies whereas the others such as MBAM don't pick up! Whenever I run MBAM it finds nothing but SAS finds about 5-15 harmful cookies and it cleans them for me!
SAS pwns j00 and pwns MBAM
Sorry but you don't have much of an argument here. Malwarebytes is not design to detect cookies of any kind. They focus more on larger threats like Trojans, and such. Tracking cookies don't fit into this equation.
I haven't in a long and I don't see myself using it in the future
I just use CCleaner to clear cookies. I guess that is the same function?
using sas pro.......
