    Sptbot Search and Destroy and Spywareblaster. I use to use Ad-aware but the latest supported version sucks. Yay Lavasoft

    The progrms for spyware and AV I am using are free no purchase required. I will be purchasing a AV when Windows 7 comes out. However the other spyware programs are free. You really can not have enogh protection what one program misses another may catch.

    At one point I used Lavasoft but a few days ago I decided to use Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.

    SOme of the other programs not mentioned like Hijackthis and autoruns can also be used to tweak settings and see what crap you have starting that shouldn't be. I have NEVER seen an anti virus do it all!

    Yes,, it is possible to stay clean for a period of time.

    But, are you 100% sure that your system is NOT being used as zombie without your knowing it.

    I don't have any recommendation for A/V other than don't use AVG (garbage).
