In my extensive research, I have found the best antispyware to be:
and likewise, the best antivirus to be:
You'd be surprised at how much more useful actual results from research is.
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
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
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.
