    So, tomorrow I'm going to purchase some anti-virus and anti-spyware software for a computer I'm working on. It's got Ad-Aware 2007, Spybot S&D 1.5.2, and AVG 8 (free edition) installed already but the computer owner is just NOT running scans like I recommend.

    So, I'm going to buy some software with the hope I can schedule scans and have greater flexibility in how the software operates.

    I would prefer getting an app that covers BOTH virus and spyware protection, so I'm sort of leaning toward a commercial version of AVG 8 but I wanted to start this thread to get your feedback.

    This is for a Windows XP Home Edition w/ SP2 machine.

    Any recommendations?

    Peace...

    Superantispyware no doubt is one of the best and i have used it to help more than hundred customers through remote and recd 100 satisfaction from the customer.

    And of course NOD 32 is good.

    Try Spybot but always failed to cleanup as it freezes while cleaning. if more than 20-30 searches found.
