Alright, my computer has no protection whatsoever. Now, my friend is offering me some anti spyware/virus programs. I don't know which covers both, or just one, or which is better.
ok here are my choices
[FONT=Verdana, Verdana] XoftSpy AntiSpyWare
[/FONT][FONT=Verdana, Verdana] zoneAlarm with Antivirus v6.1.744
[/FONT][FONT=Verdana, Verdana] Gdata AntiVirusKit Professional 2006
ok, personally I am thinking that gdata may be better then ZoneAlarm. But I do not know if they cover Spyware. I don't want to download unecessary files. For example, if Gdata is infact better AND it cover spyware, no doubt I am going with that. I think you get the idea. Thanks Help is HIGHLY appreciated. And I don't want people making stuff up or opinions. I want what they know from facts and research.

Are you getting them together?

I have them seperate.

Norton Anti-Virus

AdAware
Spybot
SpySweeper

There was a thread around here on Adware and spyware but i don't remember who started it or where it went...
 
It's best to use at least 3 spyware/virus programs.
 
I dont have that much room. I don't care what others are using. THOSE are my ONLY choices and I only want one sorry for being rude
 
Then I can't help you, since I've heard of neither.

Have you tried google searching for reviews?
