As previously stated, Kaspersky is very good.

On my laptop I use Mac OS X, which has been very effective.... *runs*

I always go free, so right now I use Avira www.free-av.com

Also I don't even bother with spyware software. I have spyware blaster installed but don't really bother with it.

If I were to pay I would get the new Eset Smart Security.

for another free option is AVG free.grisoft.com

I've also said this before...If I wasn't married I wouldn't even have antivirus software on my computers. But such is life.

I'd only recommend AVG if you haver hdd space to fill and don't want protection of any kind. I'm seeing too many incidents where avg has been installed and not seen or alerted of the virus currently active on the machine it was supposed to be protecting.

mm... i like spybot over windows defender and adaware (cos the new adaware version really sucks)... but to be honest, i dont even know why i have it. i mean, all my family members use the pc and i still havent got any real spyware problem in all these years...
i certainly wouldn't pay for any :p


for av... i know i'm gonna get flamed... but i use norton (2002 till my dad got 360 this year, if it was up to me i'd still use the old one) and it works good

Spyware Doctor and that after years of experience and tests .. we use it on our machines at work and that because I had been asked to look for and test spyware removers...

I'm amazed at how many actually believe Spyware Doctor is good... That's just... quite literally sad. It comes out with more false positives than actual results.

Best AV I've ever used and highly recommend is free. Avast.
Best AntiSpyware varies. For real time protection, Windows Defender does a better job since TeaTimer has had issues in the past. Why did it take them over a year to fix TeaTimer anyways? For just scanning, Ad-Aware SE works far better than that new crap they came out with. I prefer to mix them with RogueRemover, Ad-Aware and Spybot. Because one alone won't find all the infections.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
