I need help. My current McAffee killed itself (no idea how but I can't reinstall it) and now I need FREE software. Windows Defender is running but I want another Spyware proctector and Antivirus software.

HELP! Please? *looks as cute as possible*

Avast, AVG Free, a-squared and MalwareBytes Anti-Malware...

One of the last SpyBot updates planted bugs or trojans on my PC which I can't remove now, so I wouldn't recommend that otherware great programme at the moment. I would currently need a new Spyware remover as well (AdAware was no good).

I don't see why spybot s&d would have done that i have had no problems with that program and I keep it up-to-date try running trendmicro's online scanner housecall and see if it finds anything on your computer that might have been missed.

I found a few forums where people reported the same problem with SpyBot (taking 30 min, then 2 hours, then 4 and so on), the solution though was too complex for me. I'll try Trendmicro now!

Avast is a good free antivirus!

Also to clean your pc I recommend CCleaner if you don't have it already ;)

Umm, I'd say Avast - been using it for years and never had a problem with it.

I've used Avast for years. The home use program is totally free, though you do have to re-register it every 14 months. On the other hand, it's an awesome anti-virus and better than anything I've ever bought in a store. :-)

Hast du schon mal Avira AntiVir probiert? Soweit ich weiß haben die auch einen Spyware Protector. ^^

Try AVG free or ZoneAlarm (though ZoneAlarm takes up quite alot of diskspace and memory but is very good.
