I use malware bytes, but thought these extras might not hurt. Any ideas?

You can run Hitman Pro and ADW cleaner without thinking twice. Both are great Tools.
My advice is only not to clean with Hitman Pro.

I never had any windows problem when removing viruses-malware with antimalware. It's the safest option and will not create problems with the registry or windows. I'm saying that after years of exprerience working in IT.

When antimalware fails to totally remove a virus, i try some other tools like Hitman, RogueKiller or usually a manual removal for some trickier malware.

Note: Now a days you can't just clean Malware with only Scaning-Tools.
