    Which is better? I know one will always catch something the the other doesn't but I want to know overall which is better than the other?

    I currently used Spybot search and destroy FTW

    OMG? Is it even fair to compare the two? SuperAntiSpyware by a LANDSLIDE, oh and boy do I mean by a landslide.

    Spybot S&D used to be at the top back in the day when Lavasoft's Adaware was at the top too. Nowadays those 2 have become horrible in detection and everything. SAS has the best detection rates. Best on-demand scanner available today.

    Not even kidding. Since S&D is your current scanner and nothing comes up, install SAS and scan with that, and if nothing comes up then your computer is actually clean, but if it does detect something then you'll realize S&D is crap.

    It's ok, it's just a poll. Just go with the winner SAS and use that.

    It's also fine to have S&D as your backup scanner, but I would recommend using MBAM as a backup lol.

    No way lol. MBAM is indeed good, but not as good as SAS, that's why MBAM is my 2nd choice.:)

    Since none of them are active scanners, only on demand, it's a good idea to cross scan anyway, NOT just choose one. Spybot SD, SUPERAntiSpyware, and Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware are top three anyway. Spybot scans way faster, SUPER picks up a lot more stuff.

    SAS can have real-time protection if you pay for it. :x
    Same with MBAM.
