Submission + - Favorite antimalware programs?

MokuMokuRyoushi writes: Over the past two months, I've come across more trojan viruses than I've seen in my five years programming or gaming experience. Not just on my own Windows desktop, but also on friend's laptops, and business computers. While most of them haven't caused serious issues, I am repeatedly encountering a viruses that cause fake MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION BSODs, among other fatal errors. Thanks to the sharp upswing in malware infections, I've been kept on my toes avoiding and removing them. My questions are two: firstly, why am I seeing such and abrupt and powerful increase of malware? Secondly, and more importantly; after scans by Malwarebytes Antimalware, Spybot S&D, and up-to-date NOD32, the continued errors make it apparent that something is being overlooked. What are your favorite detection and removal programs?
