Avast  is an anti-virus program that is very effective in keeping viruses and spyware out of your computer. There are pro/pay versions but the free version is fine for home/personal use. It works very well for both Windows and Mac.

Please be sure to completely un-install any current anti-virus programs that you have and restart your computer before attempting to install Avast.

In addition to Avast, the free version of MalwareBytes is a very good program for scanning your computer for malware/spyware.
