Is it safe to use a programme called superantispyware

I have been using a programme called superantispyware for years on my desktop but I took it to be repaired and was told to take it off as it is no good and causes viruses, I was going to put it on my laptop but am now worried and don't know what to do. I have got AVG antivirus and mc afee firewall on laptop. Thank you

Rubbish - the comments. It has been around for years and no program can 'cause' viruses.

Nothing wrong with SAS, but you could also use MalwareBytes. What one program misses the other may pick up.

They were bullshitting.

It's possible that they then suggested that some other piece of software, possibly supplies and loaded by them at little extra cost, was the stuff to use!

I have used SAS for years, and find it a bit quicker and more thorough than Malawarebytes, but I use both to scan for malware. Some anti virus programmes "complain" about SAS when you install them but I find it works fine.

Like others have stated, SuperAntiSpyware as been around a long time. I have used it for ages without interference or problems.

Having to many similar or same 'anti' programs can sometimes defeat the object intended. So perhaps best to stick with one anti-spy, anti-virus and possibly a firewall?.

Hi,brodrien4. I use it some times and is a very good program, you can also use Antimalware bytes free program, which is also good. Don't beleieve everything they say, and no antivirus program causes virus, they wouldn't make a living then, I mean the companies...But is a good tip not to use 2 antivirus programs running at the same time. I hope I helped...
