Always run antispyware with your virus scanner.

I'm rather picky about my virus scanners. After getting a particularly nasty virus on my old laptop and the hours of fun (read: damned frustrating) trying to remove said virus, I learned that not all scanners are equal. In this I also got a tad hardcore on spyware too. That crap is just as annoying popping up really annoying things. In fact during that terrible infestation some spyware posed as my virus scanner!?

Over time I found this antispyware from It was great to run while I had to fix up that laptop.
