You don't always get what you want.

Anyway, throw some anti virus programs and I'll put them in the first post.

How about Spybot Search and Destroy?

It's a good anti-spyware program.

I wouldn't recommend AVG. It uses a lot of memory.

Uh what how does it?

It only does that when I'm running a scan.

you dont, you kiss your virus troubles. then you send them away, permanently.

seriously, i've used these two pieces of software across 3 versions of windows (xp, vista, 7) for five years or more, and combined with smart browsing habits, you will never have a virus again.

I know this sounds silly, but maybe one of our computer savvy members should write a little FAQ on how to best avoid getting viruses.
