Malwarebytes AND Superantispyware - OK or not?

Recommended Posts

Is it ok or not recommended to run Premium Malwarebytes and Paid SuperAntiSpyware at the same time?  I suspect like Antivirus programs you should only have one running at the same time to avoid problems.  Thanks.

Greetings,

Malwarebytes is deliberately designed to run alongside AV software and other security products so you should be able to run the two of them together in real-time without any issues, but please let us know if you do encounter any problems and we will assist in getting the two of them to work properly together.

To date I have not seen any reports of users having issues running the two, and while SUPERAnti-Spyware isn't as popular as it used to be, at one time it was quite common for paid users of both products to run them together, often alongside a mainstream antivirus product, something both Malwarebytes and SUPERAnti-Spyware were designed to work in tandem with.

If there is anything else we can assist you with please let us know.

Thanks

Just as info from another user (thought it might be useful): I have a lifetime license for both of these products, run them both in real time since a very long time now and never had an issue.

Hope this helps. ?

Thanks for the feedback.  I will let my user know and report any issue should some arise.  Personally, I use the premium Malwarebytes and it works great.  I use the free version of SuperAntiSpyware as an extra cleanup tool when/if needed.

Again, thank you!

I believe I ran both together many years ago, however I haven't used SAS in years as in my opinion its really not that useful anymore.

I've still have a lifetime license for both programs,  (over 10 yrs now)  never had an issue.. I do have the exclusions in both. (SAS still picks up some tracking cookies)  cheers!

I ran both for years.  I think SAS is past it's prime so don't use it anymore.

@KenW   I don't know?  I go way back when they were selling Lifetime/one time purchase keys.  I just logged on and ran SAS Pro. Quick Scan & got 1 hit ... up at the menu bar it says Lifetime Pro Subscribtion...    cheers

Guess you haven't kept up over the years. Cookies are all SAS detects since it was sold.

I have 4 lifetime licenses. Moving between password managers, I lost my username & password for the forum only. I finally gave up trying to get new ones

when nothing I tried worked and direct emails to them also went nowhere. When they sold out there were some comments around that the new company was not

very good.

@KenW  well I did some looking around,  maybe these will help you out?    https://forums.superantispyware.com/index.php?/contact/   (contact forum admin)  form

https://www.superantispyware.com/contact.html   (with phone no.)   I got in the forum 8/26/2018 because I had to remove the lifetime program. but, I take snapshots of the key or copy & paste it in notepad - also put it on a memory stick.     If all else fails, even a password reset?    You can PM me your basic info, I'll send it to an admin over there.... (Wonder if Nick still runs the place?)        good luck,  73's

I doubt if I will ever use the program again. As have the license keys.

Indeed, considering that their parent company settled a lawsuit in 2013 in which they used "scareware", I don't think either company is trustworthy.  The parent company was found to have engaged in fraudulent and misleading conduct.
