It is better to use only one at a time. There is a possibility that conflicts may occur.

Hi,

CCleaner has settings on the Cleaner - Applications tab to prevent it from removing
reports and so on from antivirus/antispyware/security programs.

=====================================================

Personally, using MSE, I don't run the resident function of either MalwareBytes or
SuperAntiSpyware. Remember when you run an On-Demand scanner to update
the definitions files prior to the scan for best results.

Use CCleaner - to stop the MalwareBytes Run Once at startup
MBAM - Tools - Startup - click to YES under Enable to switch to No.

The run MBAM as On-Demand.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Use the SAS Portable version and you don't have to disable the resident functions
of the regular version.

SAS - Portable version
http://www.superantispyware.com/portablescannerhome.html

For the installed version :

For setting up SuperAntiSpyware as an on-demand scanner if desired :

You have to check all the entries - the entries are by SuperAdBlocker which is used by
SuperAntiSpyware and SuperAntiSpyware.

Autoruns - Free - See what programs are configured to startup automatically when your system
boots and you login. Autoruns also shows you the full list of Registry and file locations where
applications can configure auto-start settings.
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb963902.aspx

Under this section in AutoRuns :

HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services

SASDIFSV SASDIFSV.SYS SUPERAdBlocker.com and SUPERAntiSpyware.com c:\program files\superantispyware\sasdifsv.sys

SASENUM SASENUM.SYS  SUPERAdBlocker.com and SUPERAntiSpyware.com c:\program files\superantispyware\sasenum.sys

SASKUTIL SASKUTIL.SYS SUPERAdBlocker.com and SUPERAntiSpyware.com c:\program files\superantispyware\saskutil.sys 

There may be others as my memory is not clear - there are 4 and probably 5 entries and they
will NOT be altogether so look close for both SuperAntiSpyware and SuperAdBlocker notations.

Hope this helps.
