    If you are able to spend some money
    i recommend


    ESET nod32


    Avira premium

    This is only if you have some money

    firewall, most of these come with firewalls if you decide not to install a firewall


    I recommend

    Zonealarm free

    comodo free


    I recommend
    Spybot search & destroy

    Tells me my setup is OK. Using AviraAntiVir,Comodo firewall, SuperAntiSpyware,SpywareBlaster,MalwareBytes,WinPatrol,and SpywareGuard. Only problems I have are an occasional cookie( but WinPatrols Scotty loves those).

    I think spyware guard no longer recieves updates.

    someone please confim whether it recieves updates or not

    By the way spybot is not for scaning but for its Awesome immunization feature

    you should also try spyware doctor as suggested by bobeye

    cookies can be bad or good

    Other then that its alright

    No,I haven't seen any updates to SpywareGuard in a long time, but I like it and it doesn't use much space or resources.
