    Here are freeware security applications Irecommend:

    firewall: (listed in order of preference)

    Comodo (http://www.comodo.com ), or

    PC Tools (http://www.pctools.com/firewall )

    Comodo recently released version 3.0 of its firewall, which adds an intrusion prevention component that's very effective, though it does take time for it to learn your system, and requires some ongoing attention by the user to make sure programs don't get improperly blocked. Comodo is one of the strongest firewalls available, freeware or commercial, according to the independent testing site matousec.com.

    antivirus: (listed in order of preference)

    Avira (http://www.free-av.com )

    AVAST! Home (http://www.avast.com )

    AVG (http://free.grisoft.com )

    all provide realtime protection and automatic updates; all have ICSA and VB100 certification, but Avira has been among the highest rated in tests by several respected US and UK computer publications.

    antispyware: (listed in order of preference)

    Spyware Terminator (http://www.SpywareTerminator.com ) or

    Spyware Doctor (http://pack.google.com )

    either one will give you good, realtime protection, along with

    Ad-Aware Free (http://www.lavasoftusa.com ) and

    Spybot S&D (http://www.safer-networking.org ) for additional removal ability. freeware applications are:

    Well you not a lot of tools that are not built in to your system so the virus can't hide from them

    you need to have tools not software

    Smitfraudfix

    http://siri.geekstogo.com/SmitfraudFix.php

    to use this tool boot in safe mode by hitting the F8 key at the start up. then locate where you saved the tool and launch it and choose to # 2 scan. This tool gets rid of fake pop-ups and programs on your computer

    Vundofix

    http://www.atribune.org/content/view/24/2/

    this tool is use to get rid of any vundo viruses

    Combofix

    http://www.techsupportforum.com/sectools/sUBs/Comb...

    This usually the last thing you do.Combofix is a general tool that helps the helper cleaning up a Hijackthis log.

    It is able to remove some common infections and helps a user detect files that general scanners cannot find.

    It also lists registry keys such as the key keys, the desktop keys, and other areas where malware hide.

    The tool has some rootkit detectors too, allowing a helper to see if a rootkit is present on the PC.

    PrevX

    http://www.prevx.com/freescan.asp

    download this virus scanner because since it is not registered with your system the virus will not know that PrevX is there

    This scanner can detect many more virus and can remove them also i use it and its never but me down

    I will say the better free anti virus you could have is avg

    but it won't remove Trojans or spy ware .... etc

    it will only remove viruses

    if you want an anti virus which will work also as anti trojan , anti spy ware and a firewall ... etc

    you will have to get a not free one and it's crack

    and in this case i will recommend kaspersky

    you also should clean your registry after those harm things

    see ccleaner.com it is the best free cleaner

    Use the antivirus Avira(some of them say avast but this is even better)free version.It has the best detection rates than any other free anti virus.Some say that it is better than the paid antiviruses. Together with it if you install spybot or malwarebytes and a firewall zonealarm or sunbelt for firewall Your computer will be far more secure. All the above have their own free versions.If you install and update them regularly your computer will be far more secure.This is from my personal experience.

    Superantispyware gets rid of a lot that others don't touch but I recommend going to Windows Live Onecare and doing a scan. The complete one takes a long time, but you could if you wanted to, just do the tune up and the clean up one. Cleans the registry too, again gets rid of things that others miss.

    Ehm..

    I downloaded Avira Free Antivirus for free here http://j.mp/1r2fZxS

    It's a really nice software.

  • 1 decade ago

    free.grisoft.com

    www.avast.com/eng/avast_4_home.html

    www.safer-networking.org

    www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware

    you should probably install all of these because some anti-virus softwares don't find everything. if you're skeptical about any of the above sites don't hesitates to Google some reviews to make sure they're legit. i always do. better to be safe than sorry. good luck!
