    Here are a few things I use on my computer. I normally run them once a week. Other than the following list of software, clear the internet explorer (assuming this is the default browser) cache and temporary internet files. Good luck.

    Avast Antivirus

    http://www.download.com/Avast-Home-Edition/3000-22...

    - I like this program because it is easy to use, and when the trial period runs out, it gives you a free code that lasts another 90 days. Repeat everytime the code runs out. It caught a lot of viruses on my computer.

    Spybot: Search and Destroy

    http://www.download.com/Spybot-Search-Destroy/3000...

    This will search out any adware programs that were installed on your computer.

    Yahoo Toolbar

    http://toolbar.yahoo.com/

    This does the same thing, but some people don't like the toolbar. I use it just for the antspy ware stuff.
