softwareguru answers:

Strictly speaking, SUPERAntiSpyware is not designed to be antivirus software. They target spyware, adware, worms, trojan horses, rootkits, and crimeware, a focus that allows us to respond quickly to the ever-growing groups of hostile software we address, with new definitions released multiple times a day, and concentrate on the technology that targets the most common threats in the wild. There are a lot of things that are often called viruses (many trojans, worms, and so on) that SUPERAntiSpyware will remove, but it won’t remove many true viruses or boot-sector viruses.

SUPERAntiSpyware has been designed to be compatible with popular antivirus and antispyware applications such as ESET NOD32, Spybot Search & Destroy, Ad-Aware, AVG, McAfee, Norton, Symantec, Kaspersky, Webroot, PC Tools, Malwarebytes, Avast, Avira, and more.
The Critical Point Scan is the fastest of the two and briefly checks the most common spots for malware. A Quick Scan is more thorough and as such takes more time. Between the two a Quick Scan would be recommended for routine scans and of course a Complete Scan as often as possible.

Critical Point Scan=Just a few minutes
Quick Scan= Around 30 mins appx
Complete Scan=1 hr, maybe more

Depends on the amount of software installed on your hard drive
