    Hey Bill,

    I have A-Squared Anti Malware paid version. Is this program a compliment to that or overkill with the same features?

    It sounds like it’s definitely worth an install to check it out.

      You already have it on board – it’s a component of the paid version of A-Squared AntiMalware.

  6. I stopped using A-Squared after an issue between them and Malwarebytes in July of last year. They alienated quite a few techies with this stunt.

    This app is compatible on x64 machines. I had already noticed this sometime ago, quite a great app actually.
