    Hi :)

    I currently have Norton Antivirus 2012 installed on my Acer PC. I wonder if i can have an extra antivirus software (a kind of antimalware would be nice). If yes, what would you suggest could match my norton security?

    Sincerely,

    Smartmoss.

    The free versions of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and SUPERAntiSpyware.

    SpywareBlaster is a good complement to have as well.

    All of them can be installed. Just install the free versions with no real-time scanning.
