Matt,

Here's a few for ya to check out



http://www.free-av.com/
Antivir
Regular definition file updates

Better then NOrton and McAfee
Note make sure you strip out Norton completely from your system before installing, don't forget to check the Services section on your system as well for automatic start-ups. YOU will find stuff from norton there, even after a removal. Do your initial system scan disconnected from the net

http://www.ada-ware.com/
Ad-aware 6.0
Signature files updated regularly
Catches Spyware and Adware


and

http://www.safer-networking.org/en/spybotsd/index.html
Spybot Search and Destroy
Use with the above to catch it all


http://www.sygate.com/
Personal Firewall Protection


http://www.iolo.com/sm/
System Mechanic, lots of very useful Tools


This is what keeps me safe. Hope these help ya. I would suggest doing the system wipe out and OS rebuild and then immediately installing these programs. Some are free, some are purchaseable, all are good. If you need a hand, drop me a PM

Good luck

Jim
