A one-off payment for Superantispyware and the rest are free.

You need one more category for people like me.

I use MSE (free) and MBAM (full, paid).

I cannot vote accurately.

I use the Talk Talk security suite that comes with my internet connection.

Technically it's free with my package, but Talk Talk probably include the cost in my monthly fee.

Anyway I ticked Free

I will go along with the firs two.Usually free version of Anti_Virus and a paid for version of Emisoft Anti-Malware.

I would say any anti_virus as long as you have a pay for Anti-malware program that gives you full time protection.

Is MSE not sufficient on it's own?

  johndrew 11:26 09 Feb 2012


I have been told that MSE is currently the best on the free market at the moment and I also use it. However I also use SpywareBlaster (to block any attempts) and Spybot S&D as a backup checker (TeaTimer disabled).

BitDefender Total Security 2012 and HitMan Pro (Paid for) and then use online scanners for peace of mind (House Doctor or Eset)
