Does 'Spybot - Search & Destroy' program detect and then delete trojan threats or other viruses?
If it might be no, I would be asking what its task is.
Is 'Spybot - Search & Destroy' similar to 'Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware'?

Thank you very much indeed.
But I really have been advised by Norton's representatives that I don't need to have Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware' in case I have Norton Internet Security. And If I have installed Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware'', there may be incompatibility between Norton and Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware'

As I have looked up at that site and didn't notice which threats Spybot - Search & Destroy' detects and deletes them.
FIRST:: Does 'Spybot - Search & Destroy' program detect and then delete trojan threats or other viruses?
SECOND: Is 'Spybot - Search & Destroy' similar to 'Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware'? If might be no, then what differnce is there between them?

They are in a pretty similiar ball park, but Spybot has much lower detection rate and actually far behind MBAM in removal and scanning. Spybot is rather buggy and slow.

Norton wants you to use only there software, Norton is just like any other Anti-Virus and will not catch 100% of everything, its always nice to have a back up like Malwarebytes Pro.
As for Spybot I recommend not using it and stick with Malwarebytes, I have tried Spybot in the past and never really cared for it, thats just my two cents.
I hope this helps.

I concur with what some have said, Spybot isn't really any good anymore. It used to be nice but now it's very dated and lagging behind.

So you do advise me to get rid of using 'Spybot - Search & Destroy' and install 'Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware'.
If might be yes, I would ask you what kinds of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware' there are.
