Looking to back up my sysytem and re-install Windows from scratch, so woud like a Free AV programme, and spy/malware software as well to run along side. Used AVG and AVAST previously, not sure which is best or if there is any others that work best.

Have Win XP if that helps.

You do only need the MSE but you can also add malwarebytes to run the occasional scan with if you feel more cautious (i dont do this), but the MSE is there for your live protection

I too am starting to become more cautious, so i might install malwarebytes. That Antivirus2010 is a pig to remove if you catch it
