“May the sun bring you new energy by day, may the moon softly restore you by night, may the rain wash away your worries, may the breeze blow new strength into your being, may you walk gently thorugh the world and know it's beauty all the days of your life.”

The biggest defense factor in any system defense program...of course...is the user. There is no known software which can protect your system from your habits...you are the weak point in the defense system.
For the record, I use Avira Free AV or MSE and SUPERAntiSpyware in tandem on each of my two computers...they seem to do the job, in conjunction with habits which allow me not to be my own enemy.
I will also add...users often overlook the most basic approach to protecting the system...which is promptly downloading/installing all critical updates issued by Microsoft, as well as updated versions of Java and Flash. All of these updates come about because of known security situations which exist in those apps...and which left unpatched, leaves the system vulnerable to malware.

Also, if you surf the net and google frequently, then you may want to download Web of Trust (WOT).
