I did a search and found past threads about additional real time Anti-Spyware programs.  But I would like to find more current info, please?

Looking over the posts here, many members suggest into using Malwarebytes Pro and SuperAntiSpyware Pro in real time.  I do have Malwarebytes Free version, but would like to have a real time program that will detect any nasty spyware before it gets into my computer.  Any suggestions, please?

Thank you all for your time and have a great day.

A couple of things.
- Never use two (or more) real time scanners. They may conflict with each other and certainly will slow down the system.
- There is no malware detector that can detect everything.

Another tip when it comes to security.
Many modems/routers have a build in (hardware) firewall.
Have a look at the settings.
With any firewall (software/hardware) it is best to close ALL ports first and then open only those ones who you really need.

Thank You Eddy for the additional tip, but I do not have a router.  I am on a cable connection which I like, but I do have two computers.  It's get hard for me going back and forth disconnecting one computer and connecting the other computer.  I prefer not to go wireless, too many possible security issues.  Many years ago I had a device hooked up between my cable modem and my computer, that stopped any threats, but I believe the company stopped making it.  Sorry I do not remember the name, but it did a good job into protecting my computer.

The router does not have to be wireless.....and wireless routers usually also have 4 RJ45 connections

Thank YOU Pondus for your great tips.  Sorry to say, I do not know about wireless routers and 4 RJ45 connections.  Sorry I did not earlier mentioned that I do use OpenDNSCrypt and OpenDNS.  Unless these are both the same, I do not know.
