Best anti-xxx software!!!!!

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I am looking for the best free apps that are used to clean up a computer from the following:

Anti-virus
Anti-spyware
Anti-Trojain
Anti- anything else bad
registry cleaner

My sister hella mest up her computer buy using limewire to DL 35-160k size audio files that ended up being really destructive towards her computer...

It's been awhile since i have had to clean up something this bad, so i am curious if my tool box is up dated enough to get the latest crap removed.

I want to leave the format option as a last resort for now because of a possible data loss situation f i do that.
good enough

registry: CCleaner

Everything else: up to the individual user, I'll let the fanboys argue it without me this time

Go to www.filehippo.com and view the laundry list of apps they have there ranging from anti-virus to spyware, etc. Once you select the category, you will get a list of various programs, the free ones are listed that way. My opinion to someone who fubars their computer like that is to run them all.

If you pay though, Kaspersky for anti-virus and Spyware Doctore for spyware.

Anti-spyware: Spyware Doctor from google pack and Spybot S & D
Anti-Trojan: Avg free edition
registry cleaner: CCleaner

I do fresh installs for minimal problems. For this kind of situation, you better belive I would be saving important files and wiping everything for a fresh install. It is guaranteed to work, heh.
