Hey,

Try AVG Antivirus - should be available on Download.com - its free and has regular updates for free also.

Or you could try Search & Destroy by SpyBot. It is probably a bit more thorough.

Cheers

Anthony

Hi tina1002,

Have a look in the BC compendium of recommended Freeware:
Recommended Freeware

I agree with anthonykirby's recommendation of AVG Free but you should also have one firewall and several anti-spyware programs on your PC for increased protection. I would recommend:
Ad-Aware SE
Spybot S&D
SpywareBlaster
A-squared Free
Ewido Security Suite


You can also supplement your protection by running online anti-virus scans from time to time (they are also listed in the Freeware link above).

If you are using Internet Explorer consider changing to Firefox - its a better browser and has inbuilt pop-up blocking.

GREAT freeware ! however,you left out:
BHO Captor to prevent spyware toolbars downloading. i ALWAYS reccomend Firefox web browser with it's built in pop up blocker. thennnn,reset cookie permissions [ the default settings suck BIGGG time !] ,activex settings and lets not forget that GREAT CRAP CLEANER [CCleaner].
to see what i have installed,go here
