Re: best program for protection against spyware and viruses
well u should get a firewall. The ones that are inbuilt to the routers are the best ones. But if u don't have one then I don't think it's smart to buy one. Just download zonealarm or sygate personal firewall.
Then u need an anti-virus application. I use AntiVir and AVG, both of these have free versions. I like AntiVir more, but I keep AVG just to be sure.
And then anti-spyware. MS anti-spyware, spybot, adaware and spyware blaster.
That should do it.
