    In another thread I said I had gotten the worm. mazebat. I did some removal but my laptop still seemed slow so I did a reinstall of windows.

    What antivirus and maleware are good? Currently I only installed Malewarebytes.

    you don't often get viruses... but malware seems to be a problem. we use AVG at the office but i'm iffy if i'm going to renew that contract after next year.


    malwarebytes, superantispyware both are good choices.

    I was running Norton IS for a while, but I got tired of paying for it and switched to Avast. I believe none of the free ones have real time protection, it just scans your drives periodically. So far so good with Avast.
