    Could someone recommend me one? I tried ad-aware but it always crashes and I hate inconvenience. I am currently using nod32 as my anti-virus. I have nothing for spyware. Thanks.

    as jaxxster said malaware also works i use them both. if you do happen to get both though run malaware first as it leaves a log behind after and then super anti spyware , you should also get Ccleaner to free w.e you dont need and aid in more hard drive space

    Thanks for the suggestions. I'll try them both now.

    Yeah, I already use ccleaner. It's a great app.

    I use Avast Home Edition and Malwarebytes. They never give me any problems and they're free too.

    Malwarebyes for spyware and ESET NOD32 for virus protection.
