Hi,
As i was updating my comodo firewall i saw they were offering a new free Anti-Malware download.
Is there a difference between Anti-Malware and
antispyware?
If so can you please explain.

Its my understanding that these terms are pretty much the same thing. Anti-Malware covers the full range of bad things that can get on your system including spyware, keyboard monitors, hacker trojans, tracking cookies, etc.

Most people would recommend you using at least two anti-malware programs regularly as they tend to find different things.

Anti malware is antispyware, the only difference used is for antivirus, whilst still being malware is treated separately.
Having said that it's possible for Comodo to offer a package of antispyware and antivirus.

So are you saying i need Anti malware (which i don't have.) Unless anti malware is the same as antispyware which i do have.

Sounds fine, just remember to keep them up to date and to run each one regularly, together with anti-virus software.

I use A Squared which you might also consider. Has lots of supporters on this forum. click here
