Which malware do you think I should get? SuperAntispyware or Spy.bot 2011?

For my Anti-virus, should I get AVG2011, or BitDefender 2011?

As I've said before, I usually install Spybot Search & Destroy so I can use the Immunize feature, but tend to use Malwarebytes to remove malware. I like AVG free edition, but recent PC builds have used Microsoft Security Essentials. It updates itself automatically along with Windows Updates, it is free for legally licensed Windows installs, it works while consuming few resources on a PC, and it works about as well as any other program. Besides, it offers real time protection against malware; something that few free programs really excel at.

You didn't get a lot of responses to this thread because this question had been asked and answered many times before. So search old threads.

Why would you want malware? There is no best malware, it all sucks. Oh wait, you meant something else.

Malware Bytes and Avast for anti-virus are my favorites. Both are free for consumers.

ROTFL. Microsoft Windows seems to be a pretty invasive malware.
