Avira is great and you can get it free.

Avast is great and free with a re-boot scan for boot sector viruses.

Kaspersky , not free but has strong support for fighting viruses and other threats.

AVG is garbage ! Never put this on your PC.

Mcafee & Norton are only good until they expire on you !!

Trend Micro , not exactly free has a quick scanner but not as thorough as other AV scanners.

Panda is great ! Not free but has strong support for fighting viruses and other threats.

PC Tools Spyware Doctor Not free but has strong support for fighting spyware and other threats.
Has compatibilty problems with other AV software.

PC Tools Antivirus is great and free ! Has compatibilty problems with other AV software.

Bitdender is So So , could be better.

Stopzilla is great but has compatibilty problems with other AV software.

Dr.Web is great but not free !

F-Secure is So So , could be better.

Super Anti Spyware Awesome and free !

Stop-Sign At one time was considered add-ware . I have been using them for a couple of years and works great now and they offer custom cleaners ! Still has compatibilty problems with other AV software. Some other AV software may detect
this as addware , this is a false positive.

Spybot Search & Destroy Free and one of the best . It could use a more thorough scanner also a lot of false positves
due to compatibilty problems with other AV software.

Malwarebytes simply the best for fighting malware,addware & rogueware and it's free !

Ad-Aware Awesome tool to back up Malwarebytes in fighting malware,addware & rogueware and it's free !

Noadware Warning this is rogueware ! Never put this garbage on your PC !

Windows Defender & Microsoft Malicious Tool Remover Everyone should have this on their PC.

Spyhunter Not free & is So So. Dose not fully remove rogueware as it claims. On the other hand it might find things other AV scanners might miss. Scanner could be more thorough.
