what are you guys using for malware currently?

i used to use a combination of lavasoft's adware and spybot s&d, but they have not been doing the best job as of late.

On XP I have ZoneAlarm, Avast, and Spybot TeaTimer running at all times. I scan with avast then spybot once every few months.... I have never had a problem. My Vista boot currently has just ZoneAlarm and Avast, will probably load Spybot eventually but have only been on Vista a month or two.

BTW: I also just recently switched from IE6 to IE7 as my primary home browser. I still use IE6 only at work.

I don't have any issue with stopping/preventing malware from happening... I am talking about after someone's computer is already full of crap

I'm just running Avira on XP and the firewall on my router (DD-WRT V24 SP1). No problems.

I don't run anything on Ubuntu ;)

Tea Timer is a bit much.

I just use Avast! for everything right now; it's caught a couple of things thus far, and nothing has ever made it past its scanner. If you keep your machine clean, you don't need half the "cleaner" software available.
