Hello,

You can keep malwarebytes as a backup antispyware program and do scans maybe once a fortnight. There's no need to uninstall it.

Spybot has tea-timer which protects your system settings and a handy "Immunization" function that blocks "bad" websites.

If you have a half decent system you won't even know they're running.

Not in this case, because if you are using the free version of of MBAM and Ad-aware, there is no real-time connection to cause conflict.
