i know it doesn't sound like much (no fancy name) but i use two products, both by webroot #1 spy sweeper with anti virus #2 webroot desk top firewall. before 132 spyware cookies, after 0 spyware cookies. before i go let me share something with you. if you should "ever" recieve an e~mail saying it's from microsoft, don't touch it. a friend of mine who is a computer wizard, sent me a notice, this is the notice. security advisory (#935964) is bogus and will corrupt your computer with trogans, virus, worms, etc.
