MalwareBytes Anti-Malware and SUPERAntiSpyware are pretty good.

I personally use a combination of Malwarebytes Anti Malware, Spybot Search and Destroy, and Avira Antivirus.

They usually end up solving most issues, although I do admit that they won't prevent ALL viruses and malware. I doubt there's any program that would be able to do that.

Malware comes in so many forms that multiple, overlapping tools are needed to maximize your protection.

Each program is different. One may find something another didn't find.

The most important thing is to use REPUTABLE programs. If you search the internet and have questions about products you find ask here.


No single product is 100% foolproof and can prevent, detect and remove all threats at any given time. Just because an anti-virus detected threats which Malwarebytes missed, does not make it more effective as both are needed...they scan for different things.

This applies to all REPUTABLE products.
