    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.

    It's best to use at least 3 spyware/virus programs.

    Then I can't help you, since I've heard of neither.

    Have you tried google searching for reviews?
