Chris asks…

Anti-spyware?

I’m looking for the best free antispyware right now I’m using spybot search&destroy and it seems to be taking up to many resourses is there any better ones out there?

softwareguru answers:

PCTools products do get good reviews. The good thing is they have free versions of their products. They work great. Spyware Doctor from the Google pack is a must. I highly recommend it. I bought Webroots Spysweeper and spyware doctor finds stuff spysweeper does not. Having both is a perfect combo and I recommend running two anti-spyware products.

You can do an online scan for viruses and spyware for free from the major vendors. Some of these require Internet Explorer to run because of Active-X

Its good to run two anti-spywares even if some extra resources are taken.

SuperAntiSpyware does an excellent job. AVG’s full version gets great reviews.

Anti-Spyware for a cost.
Personally I bought Webroot’s Spysweeper, their product is great and well worth the money. Watch Best Buy ads because sometimes it goes on sale for $10 to $15.

There are free anti-virus scanners availble. They work well. I like AVG and PCTools anti-viruses the best of the free anti-virus programs.
If you are not willing to spend money it is good to have some kind of anti-virus software

For a Cost
This is my recommendation for anti-virus. Free are good, but they are not as accurate as the top paid anti-virus software
