Can you suggest a malicious software scanner please.

I have the one from Microsoft,but read(cant remember where)an article about an alternative,might have been released by Malwarebyres???.
Have checked their website,but so far no scanner.

There are many free antimalware programs -

Anti Spyware :-
Adaware click here
Spybot S&D click here
Spywareblaster click here
Spycatcher express click here
a2 click here
Windows Defender click here
AVG Antispware click here
Superantispyware click here
Hitman pro click here
Malwarebytes click here-

some you need to pay for before they will scan in "realtime"

I use
Avast as my antivirus
Superantispyware and malwarebytes as a backup to Windows defender running in realtime with spywareblaster as a blocker to prevent spyware and have had no problems for years.
