    Malwarebytes' has detected stuff and cleaned them up real good when SUPERAntiSpyware could not do the job, so I use both of them along with an AV.

    No single product will EVER be able to catch everything on a given day. We always advise to run more than one anti-spyware/malware product AND an anti-virus product.

    I would like to have both MBAM & SAS available on my PC.
    For running constant, real-time protection though, which one would anyone recommend? Is one better than the other for that?

    This is what your going to hear in general: SAS realtime is more stable then that of MBAM's, i say bogus - run wich one you like best cause they both dominate :cool:
