Most comprehensive program to clean computer.

  1. Is there a single program that does Malware, spyware, virus check, etc... all in one? I tried Panda Platinum which was spyware and anti-virus. It was supposed to be good but the specs on my computer arent good enough really. It runs so damn slow. slows down the whole machine. Is there another similar program that covers all these bases? thanks.

    No, there is no such animal.
    Spyware removal requires three or even four programs to get it all.
    It is better to make a list of those to avoid, than programs to use... ther are 87 different spyware programs... mostly frauds, and at least 34 antivirus programs.... only three or four work well.

    I personally use the AVG set for antivirus/anti spyware/anti rootkit.
    For firewall, I use comodo.

    I also have a real time monitoring program: SpyBot Search and Destroy's tea timer. I would strongly recommend anyone/everyone to use Spybot as it is a great software. Ad-aware is also installed on my system, and I only use it once in a while for scanning.

    CCleaner is also a great tool for regular maintenance of junk on your system. I use it to clean my system every week.

    Hope this helps.

    Your friendly Momok =)
