Usual story
Stopzilla has found me[possibly via a link on here] and keeps telling me of all the nasties I have
and it will cost only $xx.xx a year etc.,

Is it any good are there better ways
Just opinions please.

If its telling you you have nasties and wants you to pay to get rid then its Scam ware, as in frighten you in to buying it.

Malwarebytes click here
download and run free version to get rid of any nasties including Stopzilla.

As a matter of interest, how many minutes ( or even seconds ) does the Stopzilla scan take to run for you ?

I personally would not recommend that program to anyone; in some circles it itself is considered as a malware program ( and not a malware removing program)
