Hi everybody.

I recently had a spyware and virus problem with my wife's laptop that's running XP. I finally had the the problem fixed, on this site, using maybe 7 antispyware and antivirus programs. I am wondering what works best for Vista? I used AGV, Superantispyware, Panda, etc. I don't suspect an infection, but some regular scanning, and day to day protection would help keeping the bad stuff out...Also my Norton subscription that came with the laptop is running out and I'm wondering if maybe the free version of AGV with be a good replacement...Anybody?

Certainly don't renew Norton -- it's uses too much RAM and CPU cycles, and Vista certainly doesn't need that kind of drain on resources as it's bad enough as it is. Of the free stuff, AVG Antivirus & AVG AntiSpyware are probably the best, but if you want a stronger, paid-for solution you can't do better than 'BitDefender Internet Security' which I use and recommend.

It's reliable, easy to use, doesn't drag your PC down, and is very good value for a product which combines Antivirus, Firewall, and Antispyware in a single, unified interface.
