I moved your topic to a more suitable forum.
The answer your question, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware is one of the best out there at removal and real-time protection. It comes in a free version as well as a paid version.
Also, I will recommend what I usually tell members after cleanup:
- SpywareBlaster - SpywareBlaster will add a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs.
- SpywareGuard - SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts. Make sure you are only running one real-time anti-spyware protection program or there will be a conflict.
- Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware - which i already mentioned above
- SUPER AntiSpyware - A Free AntiSpyware scanner that has great detection ratings.

Thanks for answering. Here's what I'm already running:
OS: Windows XP Pro (version 5.1) SP3
anti-virus: Avast Free 5.0.418
firewall: PC Tools Firewall Plus Free 220.127.116.11
known anti-malware blocker & malicious website warning: SpywareBlaster 4.2
anti-malware scanner / removers: Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.44 freeware & SUPERAntiSpyware freeware 4.33.1000
clean-up utility: Glary Utilities 18.104.22.1681
browser: Internet Explorer 8 <-- properly configured
You'll note all this stuff is free.
So do you feel I should add SpywareGuard 2.2 (free) as a realtime anti-malware detector? Or will this conflict with SpywareBlaster?
