Anti-spyware: Malwarebytes. Great software for free. It has an upgraded version, but you have to pay for it, which is unnecessary imho. The free version works great.

As anti-virus: Not sure, I don't use a free one. For free ones at work we use AVG, but I think it sucks tbh, and I haven't looked at Avast... There are others I am sure, but I do not know about them well enough to suggest anything (read: No freaking clue).

AVG anti virus is pretty good, the free version should be okay, but I would recommend the one you have to pay for. Its the best one I've heard of anyway. Everyone says its good.

I think Norton you can get for $14 now

What I do is just download one get the free report and manually remove the files. (Usually they will do free scans but you have to pay to remove things, but they tell you where the problems are). Of-Course this does mean you will need to have some clue about what your are doing

I like Spybot for Spyware. Have had it for years now.

Best defense though... no porn. Easy for some, hard for others. and it's free protection. Razz

For years i've been using this combination:

Firewall: Zonealarm

Anti-Spyware: Spybot and Ad-Aware (yes, the best combination, but if you have to choose one get Spybot)

Antivirus: Avira (Gets a lot of stuff AVG don't, and it's also free)


Don't even bother with Avast and Norton

It isn't

It will only block incoming direct connections, what means that if you have anything that opens a backdoor at your pc you are screwed

I highly recommend that you get Zonealarm

I've used Windows Firewall since I got Internet and never had a problem. Also, he got a minus for saying that? Shocked

Lol, wondering who did it considering that you're the MS hater Razz
I don't think you really need a new firewall unless you're really exposed to malicious pages or files, most people (like me and zexen) just use the Windows Firewall and don't have problems until like i said you're exposed to malicious content

You are always exposed to malicious content. Especially us, pirates.

You know, it's like when you and your family use a computer for years without even knowing what a spyware is, and when you learn about it and download a anti-spyware program you will find hundreds if not thousands of spywares on the pc. You don't know how much you are exposed until you see it for yourself, like my cousin who already got his pc remote-controlled by a hacker, he also believed he was safe.
