Get AVG or Avast for free antivirus.

And ad-aware for anti-spyware.

Yea, ad-aware, spybot, and AVG anti spyware are all good. You can have as many anti-spywares as you want on your computer. Just only have one anti-virus.

I'm sticking with AVG,been using the Anti-virus for 3 years and anti-spyware just around a year.You can get them free here.

AVG is crap, such a bad program for me. use ANTIVIR for your antivirus needs, and Spybot Search and Destroy for adware, spware, malware, etc.
