    Wherever I can find the iron.
    AVG, Antivir (both good and free), NOD32 is my favorite.

    kas offers a 30 day trial, after that you have to pay, but it is one of the best along with nod32

    You sure it has anti-spyware , mine (KIS7) doesn't only AV and firewall. For good antispyware i use Ad-Aware, Spybot and AVG anti-spyware (free version wth no shield)

    I like to use the combination of all 3, since all of them find something the other doesn't and they are all free ;)

    I'm sorry, forgot to mention Windows Defender, thouogh you have to keep it in your startup for it to detect things, it also has a scanner as well. The only problem with it is that it doesn't catch everything since MS doesn't consider some things spyware, they may be i cohoots with a company that releses the spyware, so it best be used in conjunction with the other 3 programs i suggestd.
