I agree on AVG (it sure is not what it used yo be several years ago).
AVAST IMHO is the BEST FREE Anti Virus and the Boot Scanner is a great feature.
Malwarebytes & ComboFix are in a league all their own.
I switched some time ago from SpyBot to SuperAntiSpyware FREE and find it a good compliment to Malwarebytes.
