Best Malware for Win7 x64

What's the absolute BEST Malware program for Windows 7 64bit? Doesn't matter if it's free or not. I just want the best one.

Think you mean Anti malware, not malware, and there is no such thing as "best". Some of the more popular ones are Avast, Microsoft Security Essentials, Norton, Avira. They all should work without much issue on Win 7 x64.

Try MBAM 1.50 too - it works well with many anti-virus software.

Malware is just a term for all malicious software, be it a virus, trojan, worm, spyware, adware, etc. Any good antivirus program covers protection for "malware".

I use MSE and MalwareBytes. I used AVG free 2011 till it crashed my laptop and my fiancees in the same day and that was it for me. I have had no problem with MSE and I recommend it to friends and family now.

You're absolutely right. I realized the mistake when I saw the notification E-mail. Whoops!

Also, I've got something on my computer called HackTool:Win32/Keygen that I cannot get rid of, Microsoft Security Essentials can't seem to remove it.

On top Of Norton Internet Security I use. Malwarebytes (free), Superantispyware (free), and Spywareblaster (free). NIS you of course pay for, Malwarebytes and Superantispyware do have paid version but they include real time protection where the free version do not. Real time protection could cause problems with your anti-virus program

MSE proactive, SuperAntiSpyware proactive and malwarebytes 1.5 as an on demand scanner..
Oh, and safe and smart browsing habits as well.
