    I’m currently using the set up in my signature.

    I keep reading about SuperAntiSpyware and I’m wondering whether to add it to the collection. I am keen to keep my setup as basic as possible so could it replace anything?

    After looking at what you have already I wouldn't bother with it.

    It doesn't hurt to have additional "on demand" antispyware scanners, which is what the free version of SAS is. It wouldn't be necessary to uninstall anything you're already using, but if you want to drop something I'd let go of Spyware Terminator.

    Hi scoobs

    I would add SAS on-demand, just to be sure, but I'm pretty confident that it won't find a thing!

    EDIT: I agree with victek, if you want, you can replace spyware terminator with sas.

    very nice setup.
    IMO i would replace spyware terminator with SAS. the strong point of spyware terminator is realtime and you use it as on demand.

    IMHO if you have the disc space it sure can't hurt to add a really good on-demand scanner.

    1) Add SAS but ditch Spyware Terminator.
    2) Replace AVG Free with Avira AntiVir Free.

    Or Avast! 4.8 Home is a very good alternative.
