    True, but You do not meet malware too often, so in practice you will be using it for a long time.

    I voted Superantispyware for my top choice but actually Malwarebytes carries equal weight with me but you could only vote for 1. :D

    It is both realtime and a scanner. Although I suppose the scanner is moreso for rootkits.

    Well since Prevx can not be used as ondemand, it can be hardly a choise. It silently installs and then runs in backround forever, until it is uninstalled ;)
    I don understand the condition, "those with no removal ignored". You have to know, that you are infected, then it is easy to find a way to remove it. MWAV.

    ... or MBAM :)

    Is it really time to say goodbye for Ad-Aware and Spybot S&D? :rolleyes:
