    If you get a good security program like Norton internet Security. It has a very good spyware detection. Avira paid has great spyware detection. Avast does a good job to. The times of needing a stand alone anti-spyware program are really over. The anti-virus program do a very good job. But it's a good idea to have a back up anti-spyware program like SuperantiSpyware free.

    But if you want a really good anti-spyware program just because you will feel better protected, Webroot anti-spyware is good.

    I changed to Avast a few months ago, I have also got superantispyware and Malwarebytes. I recently changed to Comodo firewall which seems fine and I seem to boot up quicker. They are all free for personal use and I have had no trouble with Viruses Trojans Hackers etc. I also use Windows Defender from the Microsoft site. It is safe to use two anti-spy products but never use more than one A/V as it can cause conflicts. You should run A/V and anti spy weekly. Hope this helps

    It depends on the OS you are running. For windows, I personally like NOD32, but I have recently installed Microsoft's Security as it is free and claims to be better. To date, I have not seen a difference between the two although NOD32 has more advanced options if you are technically inclined, where MS is more user free.

    For Unix systems, I would look into Avast as they have both free and paid versions.

    Try Comodo's free internet security.

    It comes with antivirus,firewall,and malware protection.

    Avast is awesome too.

    Please keep in mind that nothing is perfect and not one program does everything because no program truly knows what you do and what you need.

    Here is a few things you might like to try.


    Spybot search &destroy[the tea timer helps alot but uses 100+megs of ram]

    Ad aware

    1click maintanance

    TDS3 [for trojan defence ]

    Ccleaner for temp file removal and registry cleanups

    Try closing holes in your security.Windows worm removal tool.

    Avira free or Avast free, and Microsoft Essentials are three excellent antivirus programs. If you use AVG free version this is not acceptable as it does not remove Rootkits.

    Avira free

    Avast free

    Microsoft Security Essentials

    New, looks very good in review below and uses very little RAM.


    I strongly recommend you also install and update and scan every week or two the following free programs.

    Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Free Edition

    SUPERAntiSpyware Free Edition


    If you want to be 100% safe from malware while surfing the web install Sandboxie. If will automatically set up to use your default browser. Per Sandboxie "Sandboxie runs your programs in an isolated space which prevents them from making permanent changes to other programs and data in your computer. "

    In Sandbox settings:

    Sandbox Settings > Delete > Invocations > Check "automatically delete contents of sandbox"

    i like advert conscious by utilising Lavasoft. it rather is a sturdy application, problem-free to apply and it rather is a unfastened acquire. Spybot seek and wreck is likewise a sturdy application, besides the indisputable fact that it rather is not as consumer friendly, and it has the flair to enable you delete classes you like.

    FREE AVG is the name of the software and yes its free and its better than norton and mcafee and other stupid protection companies.

    here's a link to download it

    everyone I know uses AVG on their Windows systems with Firefox as their browser. The best thing you can do is properly configure your firewall to search for malicious strings of packet data.
