So when it comes to protecting our computers we try and keep up to date with all of our anti-virus and MalwareMalwarebytes Anti-virus / Anti-malware programs.

I spend a great deal of time on the web, so I really try to stay on top of things. So I have my anti-virus, and for MalwareMalwarebytes Anti-virus / Anti-malware, I have always used a few different programs. Well, I think I found another program that may top my list as far as MalwareMalwarebytes Anti-virus / Anti-malware removal (yes they remove more then MalwareMalwarebytes Anti-virus / Anti-malware) and that would be SuperAntiSpyware I know alot of times you need to be skeptical of what you're downloading. Sometimes a good thing might end up being a not so good thing. So before I downloaded, I checked and yep, this is safe to use. Best of all did I mention they have a FREE version - oh yeah we love free.

FREE Version of SuperAntiSpyware home Version

They also have a FREE trial version of the Professional version.

So what do they remove:
Detect and Remove Spyware, Adware and Remove MalwareMalwarebytes Anti-virus / Anti-malware, Trojans, Dialers, Worms, KeyLoggers, HiJackers, Parasites, Rootkits, Rogue Security Products and many other types of threats.

Ok, so first I think I should note this will not affect your anti-virus, this is just an extra bonus in protecting your computer. I also looked to see what type of drain it would have on my system and well, it's not much at all as you can see (mind you I'm on the professional version, so I'm guessing the Free home version would be less). You can read HERE what the difference between the Home and Professional versions are (you can also try the professional version as a trial for free)

Here are some screen shots of the program as I was running it (again I am using the Professional version).

When you go to start your scan you can pick and choose which areas you would like to scan, and how you would like to scan (quick or complete scan).
Another huge plus is it did not slow me down when I was scanning my system. I did not have to start the scan and walk away, instead I surfed the web and went about my normal business while it scanned. Here's another thing I really liked, I have larger hard drives and as you can see 4 of them. Normally when I do a scan it takes a little longer then the average computer, but I was nicely surprised that this scanned quite fast.
So yes it did find some things on my computer. Well, before I removed them I was able to view what was found and I could pick and choose what I wanted to remove (for privacy I covered the area that contains my last name).
Ok. So you're thinking, "OK why did you go for the Professional version vs the Home version". Well, the Professional version does have some nice extra features such as real time blocking of threats, but I'll be honest, it was the whole pure laziness of it. I love, love, love that they have a option of scheduled scans. I can set it to scan everyday or pick certain days plus what time I would like it to scan. I choose to scan it once a week and I picked 2am since my PC is on 24/7.
So at the very least check out the FREE version and see if its something you might be interested in. For me it was a total
