    Great article and easy to understand, even for the newbies. Some of the free products I like, in addition to the ones mentioned are:

    1) Yahoo! Anti-Spy on the Yahoo toolbar will remove spyware;

    2) A (squared) 2 (free version) at www.emsisoft.com/en/ will find worms/malware; and

    3) Mozilla Firefox which will reduce the user's exposure to spyware.

    Let me know what you think of the other two free products I mentioned. I think that they would be two great additions to your article. Neither one of them gets much press but they are very good.

    Great read Ian.

    I agree with searmor ... A2 2 (A-Squared) is well worth a mention.

    provides protection against Trojans, Dialers and Spyware. fills the gaps that malware writers exploit.

    Www.microsoft.com or search "microsoft anti spyware" in google because that is a good free version.

    well my first question is, do you have Daemon tools ?? Its a dvd rip program. My next advise is to always google your errors. You'll be amazed with what you pull up.

    Lots of advice on how to cope , identify and eliminate the malware problems but can anyone say if there is a mechanism to go after and prosecute ( ..or persecute) the perpetrators of this type of crime eg Antivirus Gold ?
