    These are two totally different programs. One of them is for anti-virus and the other is for anti-spyware so you can't realyl compare them.

    These are good programs, and all free:

    Anti virus: AVG or Avast - use only ONE

    Anti-spyware: Spybot S&D and Ad-aware - use both

    Firewall: Kerio, Comodo or ZoneAlarm - use only ONE
    There are multiple version of Zone Alarm, one of which is the free, firewall only version.

    So with that in mind can I use Kaspersky Antvirus and also install Webroot Spy Sweeper to protect against spyware. Becuase an Antivirus wont protect against spyware correct.

    Correct, viruses and spyware are different things so they need different programs to protect against them
