Does anyone have any reviews on Malwarebytes? I keep on finding old reviews. I need a new antispyware program since my "paid" one for SAS doesn't work no more.

I'm surprised no one uses SAS....

Me too, but sounds risky now that I read all these. Also run Adblock Plus in both browsers.

I use F-Secure. Shaw used them as their anti virus provider for years and I was really impressed. Then Shaw sent a notice a few months ago ending the free service and charging 60 bucks for McAfee instead. So I just subscribed with F-secure.

Forgot to ask, is it strange that Malwarebytes never picks up anything in it's results but Spybot almost always reports something?

Does spybot just pick up tracking cookies? They're "borderline" malware, they don't cause any real issues for the most part.
