i've always liked pc-cillin, its got like live virus scans and can check files for suspicious code not just check the code to a pre-defined list like everything else, so i dont know why it's not the best but hey thats just my opinion

I agree with stink, I think pc-cillin is the best

Okay for starters spybot and adaware are not virus scanners. Personaly i use norton anti virus and zone alarm pro. Now that thats said. If you know its a commonly asked question try seaching the forums

I use McAfee coz it updates it's self...and Outlook Firewall coz it's simple yet very powerfull and free
As for Spybot and Adaware....I think Spybot is bordering on being an AV since it removed Dialers and Hijacks which often behave in similar manner as Viruses, though technicaly not viruses but still.....also...Ad-aware can't hold a candle to Spybot. :P
