    Effectiveness

    Safe Returner is a smart version of Sysinternal's Autoruns which also shows you what programs are configured to run during system bootup. However, while Autoruns could not use without dedicated IT-staff, even a computer novice knows how to use Safe Returner right away.
    Safe Returner resolves both known and unknown malware threats including color-coded Malware Severity Identification. In many cases, Safe Returner is more effective than most popular antiviruses or spyware removal tools.

    Hitman Pro makes all other on-demand scanners redundant in my opinion.

    Maybe you could add Malwarebytes for leftover scanning, but since Hitman Pro 3.6 will include better remnant scanning, you could also remove Malwarebytes after a while :).

    If you think you need it an anti-rootkit scanner that is also a possibility (GMER, Sophos Anti-Rootkit). But in my opinion a first line of defense + Hitman Pro (and in my case a 64-bit OS version) is rock solid.
