Thumbs up Free Virus Scan

I downloaded the that claimed to remove the spyware and adware that slows down ur system and invades ur online privacy (allows companies to monitor your online browsing patterns & send popups, at first I thought it was a hoax and a way for companies to install different spyware onto your computer, but turns out it works and now my computer is faster than ever!
Anybody know of any other good virus software that's free to download?

Some hits on that report that it's actually a malicious program in itself. get rid of it and put on AVG

AVG anti-virus is probably the best "free" anti virus program out there.
