    Today I updated SuperAntiSpyware ran the program and it found the system to be clean. I then updated MalwareBytesAntiMalware (MBAM) ran the program and it found two trojans. This is the very first time that MBAM has found something after I have ran SuperAntiSpyware. Anyone know if SuperAntiSpyware detects anything other than spyware?

    I did not know where to look to find the two trojans that was put in Quarantine by MBAM so I was unable to check them with Virus Total or Jotti. But it makes me wonder if perhaps I should be running MBAM in real time and SuperAntiSpyware on demand.

    Any suggestions or recommendations would be appreciated and as always I appreciate all replies and would thank you in advance.

    How dumb can I be. I am so sorry for my post I just wasn't thinking. Of course I will submit the possible false positives to the MBAM forum. Again, sorry.
