Default Any benefit to keeping Lavasoft Ad-Aware

Before stumbling upon this terrific site I was running Lavasoft Ad-Aware and Spybot. I became infected and now that I have cleaned everything I would like to keep it that way.

I have installed the Super AntiSpyware paid version, Spybot and Spyblaster.

Is there any benefit to keeping the Lavasoft Ad-Aware or can I remove it?

No benefit. Uninstall it.
