...using NTL Broadband, I have got anti-virus software as well as a firewall, I want to protect my machine from spyware, adware etc.

Can anyone suggest free software that I can download (as well as were i can get it) to protect my machine, it's just that I seen so many that say they do the same thing I don't know which to pick.

Also if anyone has any other software that is worth downloading to protect my machine.

Thanks

click here Ad-aware is very good, used by many forum members and also free.

The first time you run it, it will bring up 1 entry in the registry, this is put there by M/S, Perfectly safe to remove this as well. j.

The latest version of the Google Toolbar has a popup stopper. Google is a great thing to have anyway so, download that. click here

In case you don't know, Google is by far the best search engine.
