What are the best tools for 2018 and the process in using them

Malware removal and tools.  For several years Malwarebytes, gmer, autoruns, TDSSKiller, process explorer, and HJT were my go to tools for malware removal.  As of recently, it seems like Malwarebytes isn't catching as much as it used to and I was curious what are the top tools and order of progression in using them?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I still find MBAM to be my goto scanner, superantispyware, and vipre and i run them in the same order. If a system has been badly infected i will run windows repair tool by tweaking.com, it will run multiple resets and repairs all automated making the job easier. But the tools you mentioned are still good to use for viruses.

I usually run AdwCleaner  https://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcleaner/  before running MBAM.  That gets rid of lots of small obnoxious applications.

Also, generally looking at the Programs installed and using Google to verify them will usually identify those of dubious value/origin/parentage and a simple uninstall (for many) gets rid of them.
