I would install Microsodt Anti Spyware Beta as it's got a few extra features.

Auto protect will stop them coming in in the first place. It will stop browser hijacks by telling you something is trying to change your hoime page. It has a tracks eraser to remove where you've been, what you watched.


Also download Ccleaner ( www.ccleaner.com ) and run the Windows tab before any scan. It will remove cookies, history etc and that will speed up scans as there is less to scan

you only need one Anti-Virus program, You need to choose which one you want to keep

AVG or Ewido.

Having more then one Anti-virus is not a good thing. They don't like to play well together and could corrupt each other leaving you defenseless.
