1. The Best Virus Scan Protecter.
2. Best Spyware Protector
3. Best Adware Protecter
4. And all the other protectors like (trojan, worms, and etc)
5. Start-up manager

Which products are the best

This is what I use.
1. AVG and Avira AntiVir. (both are free)
2. Spybot s&d (free)
3. Ad-aware (again, free)
4. same as 1
5. I gues Spybots tea timer would count

All of those are free products and I'm happy with them. If I'd be spending money I would probably try nod32.

well i havent had a virus for ages now, and im using AVAST home edition, its free, i also use spybot which again is free, spyware dr is also good. Id recommend 2 spyware/adware protectors as some miss things others pick up.

i would never use NORTON again, ever ever ever lol. but thats my opinion.
