Ok, need input from computer people please.

What is the best anti-virus software? anti-malware? anti-spyware etc?

What is the best to use to "clean" your computer?

Depends...are you looking for something free or to pay?

AVG is one of the better free anti-virus software programs.

Pay:

Kaspersky is excellent! IMO, stay away from Norton. While their program is strong, it takes up SO much space and slows your system to a crawl.

Or, you can go one step better, drink the koolaid and buy a Mac! roflmao

WHAT?

What are you saying about a Mac??

Step away from the Mac-hating! You're just jealous!

LOL, can't afford a new computer.

I had AVG before but had issues. I "dumped" my computer early on this year and just don't want to have to go through that again. It is a PAIN to reload everything.

I'm not having "computer issues" right now that I know of, just want to prevent them from happening again.

Nooooooooo......... roflmao

I HAVE a Mac and wouldn't go back to a PC if they strung me up by my toenails! LOLOLOLOL

As far as free-ware, other than AVG, I'm not really sure. For one at cost, I'd go with Kaspersky...there's gotta be someone else with some other ideas!

*chanting* Mac, Mac, Mac...LMAO

Avast is awesome, I've had it since I got my laptop with the first Windows Vista launch. Never had to pay for anything, always cleaned up my system.

When my system recently crashed and I took it in, they installed Panda Antivirus on my computer. Works quick and smooth.

I recently started using kaspersky. So far so good. I got it on amazon for a lot cheaper than Norton.

I have Kaspersky with no issues in over a year. I have a computer geek friend who says McAfee is the best though.

Ad-Aware and Spybot Search & Destroy are good spyware and malware programs.

I have Avast on one computer and Prevx on another. Both are wonderful. I've never had issues with Avast and it's free. We use Prevx at work so I decided to put it on another computer of mine and I think it's only $19.95 a year.

Kaspersky and Avast, both have already been mentioned, but are the antiviruses that my fiance and I have had the best experiences with.

We just got a new computer last week (finally, yay!) and it came with a free 60 day trial of Norton. But once the trial is up, we'll be buying Kaspersky.
