Program to protect your computer against malicious software, spyware.

I think this is not a good piece of software. You should be able to remove a piece of software from your system easily. For a beginner or imtermediate user removing this programme as it installed itself on my system would be imposible. No programme for removing software could remove it . Eventualy by getting into explorer etc. using a unlocker programme including rebooting a couple of times I managed to get rid of it. I only wanted to get rid of it initally because it seemed to be very resource amd memory hungry. In conclusion I could not recommend anyone to use this software.
Good, free spyware removal program.

If you've downloaded the popular spyware program "SuperAntiSpyware" then this will start when Windows starts. It's harmless. And a very good freeware spyware removal tool.
Almost impossible to eradicate and is incompatible with some AV software
This is a great anti spyware program that is free. There is nothing wrong with it.

Best anti spyware I have used.
I downloaded the removal tool to remove the superantispyware app. Win patrol reported that it was requesting to run at startup, but unfortunately it continues to run. Even in safe mode it wont let Kaspersky run. Malware bytes says no infection. Now I have my pc off and unplugged from the internet until I can figure out what to do next.

Best practices for resolving superantispyware issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with superantispyware. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using 1cleanmgr and 2sfc /scannow, 3uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using 4msconfig) and enabling Windows' 5Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the 6resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the 7DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.
