SAS and mbam seem to play well together.
I've been running them together for a long time.
SAS will pick up the tracking cookies as well, and has blocked malicious sites,
or seen links that would lead to possible infections, where mbam did not.
If I was to turn off one, it would be SAS rather then mbam.
But I have enough resources to let both work along with Nod.
That is me though, others do it different
They both update and quick scan at different times of the day, every day.
I do believe they both keep looking in the background all the time,
judging by monitoring resources, using a good bit till I start surfing or using another program.
Or done looking at stuff.
Then they back off the resource usage and give it back to me, still looking for trouble,
should I stumble into any.
I have hit on sites that I didn't expect any trouble from and these programs stopped them.
I try to surf safely, but having them both helps my confidence.
