Antivirus - AntiSpyware

LowRyda
I have been using Avast Free Home Edition coupled with Zone Alarms Firewall and Antispyware facility for some years and I have been happy with these products.

I was wondering whether anyone can recommend any other software I was maybe after a free suite that is reliable and not to resource hungry.

    and have had no problems to date. A couple of Free Tools to have in your arsenal are MalWareBytes and Spybot. I run them at least once a week or if I suspect something is out of the ordinary.

    Download Spybot - Search & Destroy and install it. Update it. http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/index.html

    Download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, install it and update it.

    <a href="http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/malwarebytes/mbam-setup.exe" target="_blank"><u>Malwarebytes</u></a>

    * Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
    * At the end, be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
    * If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
    * Once the program has loaded, select Perform Quick Scan, then click Scan.
    * When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
    * Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
