    The best free anti-virus on the market is AVG anti-virus (http://free.grisoft.com/doc/avg-anti-virus-free/ln... I've been using it for a few years now and it has done an excellent job.

    As far as anti-spyware is concerned, I use Webroot's Spy Sweeper (http://www.webroot.com) and it has been excellent so far. For a free anti-spyware try ewido (http://free.grisoft.com/doc/5390/lng/us/tpl/v5#ewi... I can't vouch for ewido anti-spyware because I haven't used it, but since it's on Grisoft's website, I'd trust it based on experience.

    However, the best defense against virus, spyware, and/or malware is still education and being careful of your surfing habits.

    Good Luck,

    I have Norton Internet Security. I purchased the downloadable version and it works great for me. It includes Notron Anti-virus and a bunch of other security to keep your computer protected. it cost $49.99 but it is well worth it.
