ClamWin Free Antivirus v0.95.2 Free
This comes with an easy installer and open source code. It features:
High detection rates for viruses and spyware;
Scanning Scheduler;Automatic downloads of regularly updated Virus Database.
Standalone virus scanner and right-click menu integration to Microsoft Windows Explorer;
Addin to Microsoft Outlook to remove virus-infected attachments automatically.
Please note that ClamWin Free Antivirus does not include an on-access real-time scanner
which makes it an ideal candidate as a second opinion giver to your regular Antivirus.
I suggest avast! which is listed in the Highly Recommended Section.

Spyware Terminator v22.214.171.124 Free
This is a free option that offers an easy-to-understand interface and lets you schedule your scans
for the time most convenient for you. The real-time protection for this program is stronger than most,
but can get distracting as you'll need to personally approve many actions. Fortunately, you can designate
a lower level of protection to keep you safe without all the hand-holding.
This is one of our favorites at Download.com for its relatively quick scan times, free real-time protection,
and the ability to designate how deep of a scan you want to use.

SuperAntiSpyware v4.27.1002 Free
Despite its rather uninventive name, is a solid antispyware program. This program offers a number of options
for the types of files you want scanned. Like many of the programs listed here, you'll need to pay
for the full version of SuperAntiSpyware to unlock the ability to schedule your scans and use real-time protection.
This is however an excellent program to periodically manualy check your system.

Malwarebytes v1.40 Free
This is my favorite and I cam personally recommend it as one of your choices in your antispyware arsenal.
Scans are quicker than other programs in this category, and Malwarebytes is often able to distinguish between real
threats and common false positives. You'll also be able to scan individual files on demand and a handy File Assassin
lets you delete locked malware files. You'll need to pay to set up regularly scheduled scans and real-time protection,
but with this solid program, registering is worth your money.
