Connecting a computer to the internet opens it up to attacks from viruses and spyware. Rather than relying on two separate programs to protect yourself against these two different types of malware, why not try Webroot AntiVirus with Spy Sweeper 2010 which can provide effective protection against both? The Spy Sweeper component of the program takes care of spyware by constantly monitoring for signs of attack from rootkits, Trojans and other malicious software.
Unlike some malware protection tools which only look for known threats, Webroot Antivirus with Spy Sweeper monitor for malware-like activity which may be the sign of a new threat. Coupled with automatic definition updates, maximum protection is always provided, including checking email attachments for malware and ensuring that your email has not been hijacked by a hacker.
When you buy this bundle of security programs you are also provided with 1GB of online storage space that can be used to backup valuable files and photos. These online files can also be shared with others, with the added security option of limiting people to viewing only selected files. The files that have been backed up online offer an extra safety net should the files on your hard drive be accidentally deleted or become corrupt.
Note that the trial version of Webroot Antivirus with Spy Sweeper will only scan your computer and look for threats, it won't remove them until you purchase.
