If they are well hidden you won't find them. I would use a good AV security suite, here's a thread with 895 opinions and answers, it's one of a few "Which AV is best" threads.

I would also recommend using MalwareBytes, or/and SuperAntiSpyware link in my sig.

Yep....the "best" virii are the ones you don't see. The one that's on your computer, for instance. (Did I make you look? )

In recent years all forms of malware have become VERY sophisticated and avoiding detection is a very large part of this. The goal is to avoid detection by the very best AV products with the latest definitions. Many succeed. Even the most powerful tools (dangerous for the inexperienced) in the hands of an expert don't always find them.

I've used it for years with no issues. Internet Security, not 360.

I used it in XP with 512MB of RAM, a lot of RAM at the time.
