    U can try out ... MICROSOFT Spyware as an Adware and Spyware remover. Its really superb .... Its FREE and has got high RATINGS on Tech Magazines. Try using GOOGLE to find download link...

    For Antivirus .. i like McAfee as it gives SUPERB internet surfing protection ...

    Bye ..

    best anti virii is said to be Norton ... PCcillin and McCafee are also good ...

    antispyware by MS is decent ...

    one more thing u require is a firewall ... if u have LICENCED Windows XP Service Pack 2 ... u dont need (coz it has its own builtin firewall) ...
    but otherwise u can try Zonealarm or Sygate ...
    firewall will stop all the creepy prgrams from making unwanted connexions to outside world thru net ... (and same for those coming from outsidfe) ... will be around 5MB ...

    antivirii are much larger ... and most prob the is the cause for your comp to be slow is virus ...
    spywares and adwares will hijack the IE ... but i dunno if they can make a comp that slow ...

    there are few free standalones ... try Stinger ... its good ... and small size ~2MB ...

    For Spyware... the best i found till date is Microsoft Anitspyware!
    Its one scanning removes the most deadly spyware without a hitch.... and it really does!
    Not like spybot..which shows the various Registry Entries...still on a reboot you find the same spyware on your system!
    Get it from:

    Regarding Antivirus, the best is AVG 7 Free Edition...
    I till date never got a virus while using AVG
    Get it from:

    Thats it!
    The Microsoft Antispyware.. is the comprehensive package removing any adware, malware, trojan, or spyware!

    For Antivirus if you have good enough RAM go for Kaspersky. Much better than Norton.
    for the freeware AVG or aVAST or AntiVirXP ... which i found satisfactory

    Microsoft Antispyware is very good but NOT comprehensive.

    It's always better to use AdAware/SpyBot Search and Destroy alongside.

    i surely am... i feel no program can guarantee foolproof protection..not atleast the free ones. they all have a preset list of viruses and they cant deal with any new category outta their list.... desperately waiting for a decent s/w to come along :shock:

    Best combination to go with is:

    AVG (Anti-Virus)
    Webroot Spyware Sweeper (about $15-20 and worth every penny! try the demo)
