Anti-malware combinations

Anti-malware combinations

On a Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 or XP SP3 machine is malwarebytes, superantispyware and panda cloud sufficient? How about just the malwarebytes and superantispyware? I have been using the trio for some time without problems.  

RE: Anti-malware combinations

malwarebytes and superantispyware are excellent anti-malware products... but the are not anti-virus products. You need to have one good anti-virus program with a real-time scanner. I have never used Panda Cloud AV, but if you are happy with it, stick with it.

RE: Anti-malware combinations

My wife and daughter have Panda on their systems. It seems to work pretty well.

If I were really setting something up for someone, I'd use a free anti-virus product like AVG Free (or whatever) and then I'd PURCHASE the MalwareByte's anti-mailware.

The reason is that I see malware get by most anti-virus programs, but MBAM seems like the most effective weapon and to have it running in real time seems like a great defense and should "back up" the AV.
