I've got Avast Anti-Virus, backed up by Malwarebytes free. Until recently I also had Superantispyware free, but uninstalled it after their latest upgrade crashed my machine recently.....BSOD the second time! Can anyone recommend another Anti-Malware? I'm toying with Ad-Aware or Spybot, but have been reading about one from Comodo, that you don't actually install but unzip from Desktop.

Thanks Jock1e, I was actually looking at that, but it seems that after the 30 day period,there's a charge for removal!

I would go with IDave's suggestion but I run Malwarebytes with superanti-spyware and find that is a good combination. have you tried reinstalling super anti-spyware and see if it runs okay.

Sorry thumbscrew. rdav13 is correct, I should read posts more carefully as I thought you were looking to change from Avast !
