Im trying Superantispyware pro between SB and it seems that Super has got more options and better ways to quarantine a file unlike SB.

spybot is dead.

superantispyware is one of the best on demand antispyware apps out right now.
you might also want to try malwarebytes antimalware

those are the best two free.

Spybot (Along with Ad-aware) was something that was recommended 5 years ago. Spybot was one of the top fee antispyware tools available. But now it's past its prime, and SUPERAntispyware DOES dominate Spybot; In Speed, Detection, Usability, Removal, and updates more frequently (once a day at least MOST of the time).

Hi Dialga :)

If the choise is between SAS Pro and SB, I would say defenately SAS Pro :) But when it comes to SAS Free and SB it's another story : SB offers ( some ) real-time protection ( SDHelper and TeaTimer ) and SAS Free doesn't. However I agree that SAS ( Pro and Free ) is the better on-demand spyware scanner :)

And what exactly did Spybot find? Cookies. Spybot is old and outdated. There updates only come once a week or so. It scans very slow and uses alot of CPU time doing so. SAS and MBAM update every single day and are both extremely light. Like 3 said, 5 years ago Spybot and Adaware were where it was at. But now SAS and MBAM is where its at.

SUPERAntiSpyware is much better then Spybot S&D but I still use it mostly the "Immunize" feature but it still detects some spyware that other don’t detect. It was the best about 4-5 years back but not anymore. Now the best are SUPERAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware.

As said numerous times before : Spybot is outdated and almost useless for now .

SAS and MBAM are the best for now (and Ashampoo antispyware)

If you have Antivirus, why do you need AS?  Does the AV program find spyware, and does the AS program find virus?  What is the difference between spyware and viruses?

Spyware vs Viruses:
http://www.squidoo.com/spyware-vs-virus

Not all AV's have anti-spyware built in, usually used for marketing to get you to buy their other AS products.

Ex. Avira free doesn't have anti spyware, but avast and comodo have both built in
