    I tried Avira after reading the Echo's anti virus thread here, and I love it. I'll never use Mcafee again.

    But I feel like I would need a good spyware program to compliment it.

    I don't want to get "virused" when I download porn like that dude in the flame zone thread, so maybe KK or JBeukema can suggest the best one? :lol:

    I've used AVG for years.

    Ad-Aware and Ace Utilities have done a good job of cleaning up the few bugs that made it through the AVG and Firefox safeguards.

    Had Spybot S&D and it ended up being a waste of hard drive space.

    No you wouldn't. The fact that you continue to engage him in threads tells a different story. He's the car wreck you can't look away from, admit it, you love him.

    Best syware/malware program is Linux. :) Easy to use and you don't need a bunch of third party programs to protect your computer or fix it, like you do with Windows.
