Hey guys,
Could someone recommend me a very good anti-spyware/malware programme.
I'v been looking at spyware doctor 2010 and malwarebytes. I currently have Spybot S&D, i feel like i need something more.
I have the anti-virus side of things covered with Avast. So i just need a standalone app.
Any recommendations?
Also i have no limit to my budget so i dont mind paying for it.

Your right index finger is your best protection


(OT, I am not sure. I used to use adaware and spy-bot, but for the last few years I have run nother but Avast with no problems)

I hear that. Smart browsing habits are the hardest thing to teach.

I run MalwareBytes Anti-Malware once a week and use Spyware Blaster. Also, use Firefox rather than IE and access the internet through a router or other hardware firewall.
