We have 3 apps that a user runs on his computer every other day: 'SUPERAntiSpyware', 'Spy-Bot Search and Destroy' and 'Comodo Antivirus'. The user runs the 3 apps at that same time whenever cleaning up is desired. The user would leave theses tools running overnight.
The app 'Comodo Antivirus' never finds a virus. The apps 'SUPERAntiSpyware' and 'Spy-Bot Search and Destroy' always finds spyware. In the morning the user would first click 'SUPERAntiSpyware' to delete or isolate the threats reported and then do the same to 'Spy-Bot Search and Destroy'. Finally restart the computer. Note, prior running the apps, the user would run cCleaner to cleanup any junk in his drive.
To-Date, there is no problem we have identified and all seems to be ok. Our question is more directed to know EE opinion on:
- Why 'SUPERAntiSpyware' and 'Spy-Bot Search and Destroy' display different results?
(Spy-bot would show registry entries and superantispyware would show files)
- Any negative effect by running these 3 apps simultaneously?
- Finally, is it necessary to run cCleaner prior running the apps?
