I am confused and intrigued so I have to ask, why do you want a really bad antivirus program?

I too, would like to see the results. As for AV's, i'd say Mcafee or Norton. If you can't get those, search Download.com for some AV's.
Who said I couldn't have everything?

ive got a new way of removing malware now. i was just thinking of it today and i have found better

backup your computer-scan with anivirus-win malishous software removal tool-mbam-sas-spy bot s&d-cureit-avg anitvirus (teporarly)-kaspersky for new av- hijack this or dds logs at bc


i think it will work a little better

Get TrendMicro Trial. Or either McAfee or Norton 360. McAfee VirusScan only got 81% of viruses- so i'd try that one.
Who said I couldn't have everything?

I can give you an idea of how bad one can. I have a friend who did not have an av program on her system for quite sometime. Her system was totally up-to-date on Windows updates and was possibly (I am not positive about this but I think she was) running Windows firewall. A week or so ago she ran SuperAntiSpyware and it found over 70 infected items.
