Hi Guys,Hah...Well finally I got my computer formatted. I was facing a hell lot of problems with my PC--like most the applications didn't work properly, my internet was messed up, thanks to the unlimited virus,trojans,spyware,adware that attacked my computer. I tried all sorts of workarounds, including scans from multiple world-class anti-virus+anti spyware progs, but all failed. Finally I had to format my PC. That was the only cause for my long absence from this forum.Anyways..After the format I was on XP SP1, so I upgraded to SP2, now guys please suggest a good Anti-Virus which will get rid of most virus, trojans, worms etc. Also please recommend me a good Anti-Spyware that will take care of spyware,adware,malware, etc. Please suggest me some open-source softwares, rather a freeware that will work on a life-time basis. I could have gone for paid ones, but they come with the hassle of yearly renewals. So no more paid ones for me, simply suggest a good modern-day Anti-Virus + Anti-Spyware. My system is all new now after the format, so plz suggest some good softwares for the same. By the way guys, Just for your info, I was planning to go for AVG Free Edition 8.5 which includes Anti-Virus+Anti-Spyware protection. It gives access to regular updates + its free for life. So is it good to go for ? Along with it, I was thinking to go for Malwarebytes which claims to be a strong Anti-Malware. Any comments on that ? Plus, should I go for Windows Defender ? Is Win Def a worthy malware protection software ?I am sorry if there are too many questions. But I just need your feedback and comments. So please, shoot.**N.B** : A format does not take a long time, but taking a backup of data worth 40 GB does. So basically, the time consumption was due to a data backup from my PC before the format.
