Incomplete List of Security Software
I decided it was time to compile a list of as many Online scanners, Antivirus, Firewall, Adaware/Spyware, Popup blockers as I could remember. This list I call incomplete because there will always be more of each application. This will hopefully help those who are looking for software to compare or use.
Symantec Security Scanner
Free Antivirus Programs
PC Shield Pro
Free Adware/Spyware Removal Tools
M$ Antispyware (New Addition)
Spyware Blaster (New Addition)
Pay Adware/Spyware Removal Tools
Kerio (Expires as of December 31, 2005)
Firewall Operating Systems
I know there are a lot of duplicate looking entries but some places offer more than 1 thing.
Hope this helps.
I'll do my best to keep this list up todate.
Thx to everyone for all the awesome feedback.
Removed From List
Stop Sign as requested.

Yeah, well I wouldn't touch the Stop Sign site or software.
OK, since I got negged for this, I'll state for the record that Stop Sign is a very well known AV-Spyware scam outfit. Do a search of AO and you will see a number of threads with nothing good to say about that outfit. Worse than the cure. They even advertise on TV, for crying out loud. Anyone who has had to clean up after one of these installations knows what I'm talking about.

Nice link dalek, never knew Kerio has such a following! Thought it was pretty crap myself!

Great. Just great. And with Sygate being bought by Norton, I don't want to switch to that one, either. Guess it's time to start shopping for another firewall, eh?

Excuse me, is there an airport nearby large enough for a private jet to land?

Get stop sign off your list please...
It has its roots in heavy adware / spyware activity. For example, it detected Ad-Aware and Spybot S&D as well as other AV's as "attackware".

I'd have to agree with everyone else suggesting the removal of stop sign,
At the same time.. another Spyware/Adware scanner is MS AntiSpyware (http://www.microsoft.com/antispyware).
