I would suggest Norton Anti-virus (current edition which is currently 2005) for a bought anti-virus program. McAfee and others are also good but I have had excellent results with Norton since 1997. There are also commercial anti-spyware programs available.
Always update definitions in anti-spyware programs when running and update signatures in anti-virus programs when running.
