Anti Malware - W7 64 bit

  john bunyan 12:21 05 Mar 2010

I am with W7 64bit, and for anti Malware use Malawarebytes with no problem. I had Superantispyware and it worked but generated a host of Eventviewer problems and I uninstalled it. I believe they will issue a free version for 64 bit sometime, but for the moment I will wait. In the meantime is there another anti malware (free) for 64 bit W7? (I have Avira anti virus and PC Tools firewall, and , for now , do not want to use MS Security Essentials. What about Spybot Search and Destroy?)

The other option would be to pay for Malwarebytes and the you probably would not need another anti-Malware program.
As far as I know it is a one off payment and if you search for coupon codes for it you will get it that bit cheaper.

Thanks for input. Will see if anyone has tried
Spybot Search and Destroy as well as i think I saw it mentioned on a recent thread.I did find that SAS found stuff that Malawarebytes missed, I think Google and MS things in my user file - not true malware but sneaky stuff.
