I just suffered the effects of a cocktail of spyware/malwaye and a keylogger on my desktop PC. I had personal stuffcompromised*email, WoW account, etc.) and my system was damaged to the point where I just remformatted out of desperation/frustration(and an excuse to install Vista). I had Spybot, CCleaner, Malwarebytes and AVG installed and frequently updated, but it was not enough it seems.
Along the lines of prevention and removal, out of all the choices out there(ZoneAlarm, avast, Spysweeper, yada yada yada....), which ones are worth picking up? I really don't want to have this happen again.

I use AVG, Malwarebytes, and superanti spyware, and I've never had any problem.
But, I only download stuff that I know is uninfected.
95% of prevention is knowing what your downloading before you download it.
