Antivirus, Trojans, Spybots, and other Malware

I run Linux, so I rarely have to deal with this stuff, but sometimes I am called on to help a friend with something suspicious. There are services online that will let you upload suspicious files for online scanning. This way I don't have to deal with installing software and it doesn't matter that I'm using Linux.

If I do install software then I usually go with Spybot Search & Destroy. For antivirus software I install Avira or Microsoft Security Essentials. I've been told that Panda Security Cloud Antivirus is good too, but I have not tested it. These are all free. Trend Micro HijackThis can also be handy for creating reports about the state of a system. It is useful when investigating what might be wrong. It does not actually find or remove bad software.
