Hi guys - I posted an earlier thread in the week relating to installing some security free software as i am a rather basic soul and need all the help i can get to find my way around this huge subject. But As always - brilliant help and i have completed 2 of the suggestions -ccleaner and spywareblaster (i already have AVG7.5). However, it was recommended I install a search and destroy program - and Spybot was quite popular - however looking on the review of this freebie on this site - it didn't get a very good write up - any other suggestions or should i go still with spybot?? Many thanks

Nothing wrong with Spybot but I would recommend SuperAntispyware click here

I use both Spybot and SuperAntispyware - but I agree with VoG™ that SuperA seems to have a better record in detecting particularly nasty infections.
