Computer Question: Anti-Virus programs?

I just spent a couple of hours trying to get a bunch of spyware, ad-ware and trojans off a friend of my wife's machine.

She has teen-age kids and her machine had everything, but I think most of it is gone.

With my very limited knowledge, I think now have her set up with everything except for an anti-virus program.

This gal has zero cash, just bought a new house, yada, yada, so I tried

http://www.free-av.com/

But I could not get it to completely load. (I have no idea why)

Any others anyone can suggest?

Thanks.

What those guys said.

AVG is by far the best A/V program out there, free or not.

Another excelent program. I used to run that all the time on my PCs. When I bought one of my computers a few years back it came with McAfree - the updated version didn't nail viruses that the year-old copy of PC-cillin nailed. Switched to AVG when I found about about the email scanning. This is the program I run when something gets thrown at me that AVG struggles with.

The free version does not, not sure about the pricey one.

I have a external firewall / router set up on mine and use the free version with no problems !

Another free one is ClamWin . I like it better than AVG, partly because you don't have to jump through all the registration hoops. It has a tiny footprint, updates automatically, has scheduled scans and integrates into Outlook.

Last time I used it, you had to enter in your e-mail addy and they would send you a key. Probably not an issue for most people, but I have a lot of computers and it's easier to download one file and distribute it that way, rather than screwing around with keys.

I'm not saying AVG is bad; just throwing out an alternative.
