  • U can also try out this if the previous one dosent work www.avast.com have a free version from their downloads page.
    It is far better at stopping a variety of spyware than the free AVG antivirus.

    These days, you need to have a decent antivirus package that stops spyware as well as viruses. This activity needs to be done in realtime, before anything nasty installs itself on your computer. Ad-aware is all very well, but things can get very tricky once nasty spyware has installed on your windows PC.

  • Well you can try out for NOD 32 Kernel.. It is used genrally at IIT due to its enhanced security mechanism and small size. It is updated regularly.

  • The best antivirus and internet firewall cum security suit of the date is undoubtedly Kaspersky, give them a try and u will never repent.

    Other than that, some good names are antivir, Norton antivirus, AVG, PC Cillin, e sys, e trust and of course last but not the least NOD 32.

  • Avast is best if you want a free edition and kaspersky is more effective than avast...

  • See, Different anti-viruses have different procedures and effectiveness...

    Also, you have an firewall(as you said) , are installing an antivirus..

    So , you may also need an anti-spyware. Either go for microsoft-antispyware, or use Ad-Adware.

    Personally, i also feels as an anti-virus, avast is best....

  • Best Antivirus Product of 2006
    "When you combine the speed, accuracy and advanced heuristics capabilities of ESET’s solution, it is clearly the best performing AV product on the market today." NOD32 also won the proactive on-demand detection, and highest on-demand scanning speed categories.

    Better. Faster. Smaller.

    ESET NOD32 Antivirus offers superior, comprehensive protection, the fastest scanning throughput, and the least performance impact of any solution.   More
