AVG Free Edition for antivirus, Zone Alarm free for firewall, Spybot Search and Destroy Free ,
Spyware Blaster Free , Cccleaner free cleanup utility, There is no need to purchase security programs. There is a ton of free programs. Do you have a problem with an infection or are you just getting setup?

Ordinarily I keep all references "in house" because we have excellent resources. But this link is too good not to share with those who ask this question. Roll Your Own Free Security Suite

What buddy said isn't entirely true (although I am paying nothing for my computer security). AVG Free or AntiVir is the way to go for free anti-virus; however, for the most secure and comprehensive virus removal and protection I recommend NOD32 and Kaspersky.

Animal, am I aloud to use that link in other forums, my website, and to help others in general? It has some pretty interesting stuff like RegClean.

I'm in the computer Security business.
And, I buy NO security software, except for "Trojan Hunter".
Here's the list that I share with all my customers:
These are the programs I use every day to keep my own PC spotlessly clean.
I suggest every person having any Virus or Spyware issues get these programs
and use them immediately.
Do check for updates to all your security software on a DAILY basis.


Trojan Hunter, is a first class Trojan Horse Virus removal program.
The dowloaded version is a 30 day, Fully Functional, free trial.
Use the Free Trial to clean up a Dirty system or buy the retail license to have a year of
full service plus updates. Download "Trojan Hunter" here:
From the web page, just click "Download Free Trial Version"
It's a 5.9 meg download.

Spybot Search & Destroy, a great anti Spyware program.
Can be downloaded from:
For instructions on how to set up Spybot for best operation,
See my Spybot Setup instructions on this webpage.

AdAware SE/Personal. Another top notch anti Spyware program.
Can be downloaded from:

Spyware Blaster, a great Spyware Blocker.
Protects both I.E. and Mozilla Firefox.
Can be downloaded from:


World famous AVG FREE will keep your computer free of viruses, trojans, dialers, etc.
By default, it updates and scans for viruses on a daily basis.
Can be downloaded from:
Save to your desktop and run the install from there.
Immediately get updates. More than one may be required.

Stinger: Stand Alone Virus Scanner
Check for new version, once a week.
Can be downloaded from:
Save to your Desktop and run from there.

vCleaner, Stand Alone Virus Checker from Grisoft.
Can be downloaded from:
Save to your Desktop and run from there.


Easy Cleaner, the best Registry Cleaner I've found so far.
Can be downloaded from:
Personal Website = (http://personal.inet.fi/business/toniarts).
Just scroll down to "Download & Installation" and click on the first floppy disk symbol.


The XP windows firewall is only a 50% firewall, blocking incoming hackers but doing nothing to stop any ET that's already on your PC from "Phoning Home". It seems like almost every program you install anymore, wants to "Phone Home". It's a good idea to NOT allow this activity. My suggested Firewall to prevent this activity is the FREE version of a world famous product called "Zone Alarm".
ZA can be downloaded from:

With AVG, and the Anti-Spyware programs, I keep myself and my hundreds of customers safe and secure.

Cheers mates,
The Shadow :thumbsup:
For those wanting, or needing the Norton Removal Tool,
it's latest version is available Here:
