You can usually go with something that is, for instance, an "all-in-one" product - meaning that you wouldn't just get one particular thing out of it. In other words, what I highly recommend you use for absolute protection would be "Norton 360" - the total package when it comes to protecting against spyware, adware, viruses, identity theft, and so forth. That also happens to be better than Norton's series of "Internet Security" which they usually release every single year, but if you're not looking to spend much, or even any money for that matter, there are programs that are available throughout the net, such as Spybot S&D/avast! Antivirus (which is what I currently use and since then, my computer has not crashed or showed any signs of maltreatment once), just to name a few.

I agree with the above posters. You should buy separate programs for Viruses and Spywares. They work separately hence giving a more stable way of dealing with these infections.

Good question. The general consensus is that, while suites are usually better integrated and less prone to conflicts, you're likely to get better coverage with separate components from separate vendors. Of course, it might be best to know first what's under the hood of your system, as well as what kind of stuff you do online. Care to furnish this information? I'd be able to offer a more personalized solution for you.

Those anti-virus with anti-spyware protection isn't really effective.. Better to use independent anti-virus and anti-spyware software...

Usually, I suggest that you use Avira antivirus.Right now,my pc is protected from virus or malicious programs.
