NOD32 Anti-Virus and Webroot Anti-Spyware are the best combination IMHO. Both cost a very small amount of money.

If your not willing to pay anything, your not going to get good protection. Period.

Well idk much about adaware, if its any good I guess I can live with it. It has a process awwservice.exe that runs all the time, does this provide protection all the time or what.
