    I'm using Ad-Aware 2007 Plus for spyware, and NOD32 as anti-virus.

    I just had viruses removed from my hard drive and Windows XP. The technician who helped me installed NOD32, instead of Avast which was installed before the successful virus attacks. My browser was also changed from IE 6 to Mozilla Foxfire, which the tech thinks is less susceptible to virus attacks.

    My system runs well now. I looked at CNet Review to rate different antispyware products, and my Ad-Aware 2007 was rated last of ten products, so I don't really know who to believe.

    Comments are welcome.

    Did you purchase Ad-Aware 2007 Plus? If so, you might to supplement it (if not replace it) with Spy Sweeper by WebRoot. It's highly rated and well respected. Generally, people use multiple anti-spyware apps. When talking free apps, Ad-Aware (free edition), Spybot S&D, AVG anti-spyware, and one or two others are frequently mentioned.
