I use no antivirus, no anti spyware, and have no firewall, no special scripts and run IE. DOn't have ne problems at all. This is fact. I've never picked up any virus from any site. It's what YOU click that causes a problem on your pc. If you know what u are doing online you will never have a problem. Happy clicking can be your worst enemy.
In terms of suggestions. There are some great free pograms out there such as AVG 8, Superantispyware and Spybot.
Ill also suggest that clicking adds will never really help you out because it installs cookies on your system tht can be a bitch to remove.
If you do happen to suspect spyware or viruses run your scans in SAFE MODE. THe reason for this is that most spyware and viruses can just re create themselves when you remove in windows because of the processes running in the background. Within safemode the only processes running are yo ur basic windows ones. To action safe mode, tap F8 when PC turns on and continue to tap until you reach the Advanced Boot Menu.
