what is the best adware/spyware/anti-virus program?

What is a good but not too expensive spyware/anti-virus protection program for my computer. I have a bad feeling that I have been infected with some sort of virus so I want to take care of it before it crashes my computer.

  • I have always used McAfee and never had a problem, I recently had Firedog take CA Security spyware/antivirus out of my laptop because it caused the internet to slowdown to the speed of a snail.

  • I agree with AVG. It's free and I have it on one of my computers. I has actually captured things that Norton and my McAfee hasn't. Do a search on google for AVG and it should give you the links to download it.

  • Trend Micro Antivirus and Webroot Spy Sweeper are the best. You can get them at Best Buy.
