Ad-Aware vs Malwarebytes vs Spybot?
I heard spybot is not realtime.
I heard malwarebytes is realtime.
Anyone used these free anti-spyware tools? can your recommend me what is the best free anti-spyware and anti-malware software 2017?

Malwarebytes would be your best bet.

Any thumbs up for malewarebytes here but real time scanning is not included in the free version.
Don't forget about good old windows defender if using a PC, it,s surprisingly decent and also offers real time scanning.Web Hosting | Reseller | VPS

Malwarebytes every-time. I scan my PC at least once a weak with the free version.

The only way to keep your computer clean against malware, spyware or any other threat, is to be careful when browsing on internet, to never download any applications or gaming torrents, and to always thinking twice before accepting everything during a program setup.
Because even with premium anti-virus or anti-malware, virus databases are not updated in real-time and bypassing an anti-virus is pretty easy with a file crypter.
And free softwares are almost all the time Freewares with several ads included, and will not protect your computer because the premium plans will not exist anymore.

Also, lock down your machine using Group Policy. This helps prevent malware from actually installing on your machine. I use a free tool called CryptoPrevent from foolishit.com. It does all the GP stuff for you. Not been infected for a good few years since I did this.

I heard they recommend these tools but not sure it will be better than my anti virus software using on my PC.

Windows Defender is as good if not better than the commercial products. But for on-site repairs Malwarebytes is a must for my toolbox, Zemana AntiMalware is another

I am using Malwarebytes anti malware. Apart from this I am not using any specific tool. I usually don't have the issues related to the spyware. Because I have AVG with those spyware related problems taken care of with it. So definitely using those two are more than enough for taking care of the problem. I have found that malwarebytes is more than enough for my case. I don't think all the desktop and laptop need every free product out there.

Malwarebytes attempts to detect and remove malicious worms, Trojans, rootkits, rogues, dialers and spyware that effect PCs. Rather than depend upon virus signatures typically used by other antivirus software.
