Here's a list of programs i use,   I've cleaned 1,000's of computers and jerked off behind 100's so i know my way around spyware, malware and boobs.  I use  http://filehippo.com/ to download most of these.

(If you click on the name of the software it takes you to the download)

Go into your browser, and manage addons.  Its usually in tools, options, and programs.  Look in search providers and delete everything but google, or bing if you like it.  you might have to make google the default before you can delete the others.  Then go to addons and disable anything that says toolbar, or doesnt have a name under publisher.  If you need help on this post a screen shot of your addons.

Also another step before scanning, go to start, run,  type msconfig.   Go to the startup tab, disable all startup items.   Go to the services tab, first check hide all microsoft services, then disable all services,  this will disable 3rd party software that could interfere with scans,  after you're done, go back and re-enable them, if you see something you know that you don;t need leave it disabled.

After installing these,  to open them right click and run as administrator.

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware  (MBAM)

This is the best program i have found for killing Malware.  When you install it you have a choice to install the 30 day free trial of the Pro version, I don't because it's just annoying. Run this at least once a month and anytime you suspect your system of having Malware.

Spybot Search & Destroy

This used to be my favorite, but now i use it in combination with MBAM,  I usually just start both up at the same time.  Always Update, then immunize, then scan.  I always uncheck the box that says install Tea Timer.  It's a real time scanner that is supposed to catch spyware on the fly.  ITS FUCKING ANNOYING. 

CCleaner (crap cleaner)

This program cleans up your computer by removing files, registry entries, cookies, and temp files along with other useful shit.  I run this after I find and remove spyware, or after doing updates, and at least once a week.

Run the Cleaner and Registry buttons.  On Registry do a scan then fix,  back up registry everytime.

(you might want to uncheck some things like saved passwords, everything under windows explorer,  read everything that you have checked and understand what it is.)

Defraggler

This is Windows Defrag with a 12 inch cock and supermodel gf.... It can defrag files individually. If one or two of your programs are struggling, you can specifically target them in the process during a quick defrag. It has a lot of improvements from the standard defrag.

DO NOT DEFRAG A SSD DRIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 
Ninite updates multiple apps at once, you open it, it will show you what programs need to be updated, you click update and it updates all of them for you.  This program kicks ass.
 
 
This will fix any errors with uninstalling a program, If you've ever tried to uninstall something and it gives you a big fat error then you will love this. It works on 64 bit systems unlike the old cleanup utility.   Always try to use the control panel uninstall way first.
 
 
I'll update this thread with preventative programs later. 
 
This is what i use to keep my computer running good,   I always see threads asking, so i thought i would share.

 

Here's another one from xnate,  There's more details on the link, my thread has reached the maximum characters so i can't put his whole post in

xNate - 

Junkware Removal Tool - Bleepingcomputer.com

Junkware Removal Tool is a security utility that searches for and removes common adware, toolbars, and potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) from your computer.  A common tactics among freeware publishers is to offer their products for free, but bundle them with PUPs in order to earn revenue.  This tool will help you remove these types of programs.

 

This is browser addon that will help block shit that infects your machine. There are others as well but this one is the most user friendly imo.  After installing go to options and disable the alert bubble.

groundfighter2000 - Retard, is it necessary to have allll of these programs on your computer? Also how often should one defrag their comp?

MBAM, Spybot, CCLeaner, Defraggler   YES

 

Defrag as needed.   You can open Defraggler and it will tell you if your system is good or bad.  You can also schedule it to run at startup, or at 3:00 a.m or whenever so you don't have to fuck with it,

You can actually do that with any program.  but Defraggler has a scheduling option built in.

I'd also recommend : Hitman Pro. While you might have to pay if it finds viruses, it is worth every penny. I can't tell you how many computers i've cleaned successfully with running just this program

Windows Defender Offline (not the same as windows defender) is pretty handy to have around too. Burn it to DVD. You change your boot order in bios to boot from the CD/DVD then run the program before windows starts up. It's not the be all end all but I've used it on several PCs at work when malwarebytes couldn't remove a virus.

Also another tip for desktop users is to open up the case ( if your comfortable wit that) and clean as much dust out of it as possible. Using compressed air cans. Once or twice a year. Phone Post 3.0

VTFU for WinDirStat.

I agree with everything OP suggests. +1 for CCleaner!
