Norton will cover you for spyware.

You could also install Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware: Malwarebytes

theog is right, in that Malwarebytes seems to be universally known and respected. I have also used the following apps with good results:

Ad-Aware and

I agree/use malwarebytes (free) as well as superantispyware (free) with Norton and they all seem to "play" nice with each other

I'm currently running Norton 360 along with MSE and Comodo Firewall/Defense.

They all play well together with no conflicts. MSE plays well with most AV's and any added layer of protection you can get is a nice plus.

As theog said, adding Malwarebytes would be a good idea

My highest recommendation is "Spyware Doctor". I use it with Norton 360. Excellent protection, strongly recommended. It, in my opinion, it so far the most advanced anti-spyware product I had used.

Norton, MSE plus the HIPS software in the Comodo Defense+ sounds like a lot of computer security bases covered!

I note you are running Win 7 64-bit.

Super Anti-spyware is good choice as it is 64-bit native.
Their update server is however somewhat slower than Malwarebytes server.

I've been using Norton for 3 years and in that time no malware has got past it.

For those who use NIS as I do - does NIS 2013 offer any significant advantage over NIS 2012? (I know there is MSE etc.)

My NIS 2011 (which I am very happy with) ends in a couple weeks. I already have the boxed retail 2012 ready to install but looking in the Norton Forums many seem to be having issues with 2012. Has anybody had any experience with NIS 2012 yet?

Hi, I was just wanting to see if anyone has had any problems with Norton and Windows 7. I recently installed build 7100 on my mother's machine and she insisted that Norton was installed. I eventually relented and installed it, but it only seems to cause problems... Anyone else??
