http://www.download.com/Ad-Aware-SE-Personal-Edition/3000-8022_4-10045910.html?part=dl-ad-aware&subj=dl&tag=top5

 One of the best free ones IMO.
 Be sure to update it after initial install.

the hack this looked cool

most of avast stuff i can separate into sections

5 have something curropted

100 are passworded they mostly are adaware and spybot things


81 things are unable to scan most of these things look like something that had timed amounts of usuage
say 90daysofdell  and more adaware things


180 things are system restore most are look me gen

10 or so say file is not packed

now the bad things

some in local setting like 5 or so
then rest are in DandS\Heart\Application Data\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\javapi\v1.0\jar
last time i had major comp issues 3 viruses were in this area
