    Is there an option that I can pick to say all of them? They are all good in there own way. So you can't really compare these, I think.

    If I had to choose one I would have to go with HitMan Pro due to its arsenal of proven engines and "forced breach mode". The downside is false positives and no free version, though you can "go to location" and manually delete potential malware. I have also heard from someone here that you can use "early warning detection", which will allow you to use it like the paid version. One other thing I don't like is that it scans for cookies in its default mode. That is retarded, imho. NO ONE wants to visually scan a bunch of cookie line items while looking for the real threats that might be displayed.

    Of course you can't use them all at once, but you can use one at a time and when they are needed.

    You can have as many on-demand scanners on your PC as your heart desires, however; I would not recommend you run them all at the same time, though I have always done that with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and HitMan Pro quite often in the past. The argument is that if two or three scanners find the same threat, instability might occur. I have never had that problem.

    It is having multiple realtime security that can be a problem. You want an AV of some kind, a firewall, and possibly a realtime AM tool like Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Pro, I.E., a SUITE (3 in 1). That said, having two of any one of those realtime security tools is a nono, unless you want a sluggish PC that potentially crashes and runs like it has malware hogging CPU.

    As McLovin said use one at a time as ondemand scanners and it will be fine,
    my current set up is Real-time protection: Malwarebytes Pro
    Kingsoft Antivirus running together, and
    Hitman Pro and Comodo Cleaning Essential and Emsisoft,
    and I spent my time looking for trouble as in malware lol

    you have ESET Smart Security so I would not run anything in Real-time With that,

    Hello reble4life

    if you have trouble uninstalling security software most have there own uninstall tool so if you have problems with the uninstall

    i was a Beta tester for Malwarebytes in it's begining before it's relese to the public and never had a problem uninstalling it unless a virus messed up your system permissions thay also came out with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware clean later to help uninstall and also clean up left over stuff after uninstall to help in reinstalling

    http://downloads.malwarebytes.org/file/mbam_clean <-----direct download

    there is also a uninstall tool for SuperAntispyware here

    SUPERAntiSpyware Uninstallation Assistant

    As long as they don't have real time protection on, they'll work. You shouldn't scan at the same time. They'll interfere with each other .

    There is also comodo program manager. It has a force uninstall feature. When it uninstalls something it removes the registry items to so thats a plus

    It will do that anyway if you uninstall something with CPM. It will monitor an application install, and make sure to delete everything that an application installed if the applications uninstaller leaves anything behind.

    If an application was already installed before CPM was installed so the installation wasn't monitored, CPM has a DB monitored feature. If an application is listed as DB monitored, it means the applications installation details are in Comodo's database, and it will still be able to delete any leftovers.

    If both of those scenarios do not apply, it will function like the free version of Revo Uninstaller does. It will attempt to scan to find any files/registry keys associated with the application and delete those if they are left behind.

    The forced uninstall option is to use if an applications uninstaller doesn't want to work for some reason, or perhaps the application doesn't even have an uninstaller. Then it will just manually delete every piece of the application. The forced uninstall is more of a last-resort type of uninstallation.

    malwarebytes antimalware does not scan for every TYPE of virus. It just scans for the common types. Here is a video that compares Comodo Cleaning Essentials, Hitman Pro 3.6, and Malwarebytes Pro. It is also proof that malwarebytes doesn't scan for every type of virus

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=umDqdFkSc40&feature=related[hr]what people don't seem to understand is that malwarebytes doesn't scan for every TYPE of virus.

    There isn't any scanners that scan for every type of malware.
    That's why you have to use a combination of several to get the job done.

    Enjoy!!:D
