MBAM + something?


Recommended Posts

I'm not very tech savvy and after a recent infection easily cleared up by using MBAM I've been reading a lot of this forum in an effort to educate myself on the subject of the different forms of malicious software and how to protect myself.

I see a lot of people talking about what kinds of anti-virus to accompany MBAM, and I'm curious... what is that difference between MBAM and an Anti-virus? Does MBAM not search for a "virus" and just everything else (spyware/adware/scareware/etc)? Could someone use JUST MBAM and still be fairly safe?

A friend of mine told me to use AVG along with MBAM to try and catch anything it misses but in the past year I've only had 1 infection (Anti-spyware Soft) and MBAM cleared it right up. Is this a good idea?

Any info and clarification is greatly appreciated and if I posted this in the wrong forum subsection I apologize!
