What is the best virus protection and removal software?
I have an Acer Aspire One that runs Windows XP, and I would like to know if anyone knows of a really good virus protection/removal program that protects against all of the viruses and spyware and junk. I would prefer something that I can purchase in a store instaid of off the internet. Thank You!

What is the best virus protection if you already have viruses?
I have quite a few viruses on my computer, one scan said 112, and about 50 some spyware. I am using the free AOL virus protection and it is awful. I’m looking for the best virus protection to remove the exsisting viruses and help protect my computer from others. I would prefer an all-in-one program, with virus protection, spy-ware, ad-ware, all of that. It doesn’t have to be free. Any good ones out there?

Sure, I could pay /year for the popular McAfee or Norton virus protection programs out there, but I’m looking for something just as good (if not better) and FREE. I also do not want it to come with spyware or any of those other freaky things that free stuff comes with. Any suggestions?

Do you know of any FREEEEEEE programs out there that will repair things on the computer. I’m trying new antiviruses but if that isn’t the problem then maybe something else is. What can I do?
I want a computer repair such as machanic not an anti spy. Everything that I have run so far has said that there is no spyware and no viruses. The problem must be something else. I already have the programs that are listed in the answers so far.

My computer is ridiculously slow. It has no virus, malware or spyware at all because I ran complete scan of antivirus, firewall and antispyware. I also ran the registry cleaner of lavasoft.

I use Avira Antivir classic, Comodo firewall, PC tools Spyware doctor, ad-aware and lavasoft registry cleaner for protection. So if there is no virus, malware or spyware then why is it still so ridiculously slow?

It is an emachines desktop which I purchased in April 2005. It still has windows xp. I am tired of doing computer recovery and re-formatting the hard drive.

I just did the recovery 2 days back. After recovery it is fast but then when 2 to 3 days pass, it again gets very slow.

I talked to emachines technical support and they say i have to add more memory. Why? Why must i add more memory when it is only 3 and a half year old computer?

Can a 3 and a half year old car, have so many problems? Then why PC’s fail after 2 to 3 years only?
i also added a performance enhancer named Boostkit. It is sold by mcafee.

Unfortunately the performance booster also failed. I realize my get wasted. This computer is almost in its grave now.
