    superantispyware in some ways better than malwarebytes ... cookies today is one of our biggest problems that track your surfing business for hijacking your searches to what they want displayed on your monitor not what you want displayed...etc malwarebytes doesn't get rid of these and is now an annual subscription payment for the pro version ware as superantispyware is a one off payment and cheap at that... after sasw the classic spybot is your best choice.. if you don't want to pay !

    It doesn't catch anything but only cookies and PUA's. People who don't know what is a cookie or PUA can think their system is full of spyware. Also, it updates almost everyday and it tends to freeze the system, very annoying. If I want to remove cookies I can't do it through my browser settings or through an specific extension.
