Hello everyone! I'm new here.

Let's get down to business. I want to arm my PC with anti-spyware and other software that can arm my computer against these bugs. I don't know much about them, but I can follow instructions. My OS is XP 2003. Kindly advise me on what software to download. I am checking out download.com, but I have no idea which software to choose.

Thanks for your help in advance. :thumbsup:

Hope to hear from you soon.

Welcome to BC!
Acklan correctly directs you to a great link with available applications. For an understanding of malware in general, I would suggest you read this tutorial:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/841/best-practices-pc-worlds-avoid-viruses-scams/

Many of the applications mentioned have excellent HELP files that amount to a tutorial on how to use each of them to help prevent malware. Also worth reading is this list of best security practices:
