You would need a separate utility for each: one anti-virus program, and another anti-spyware.Viruses and spyware and other forms of malicious software are all taking on each others characteristics to the point where the distinction between them is not only difficult to characterize, but ultimately not useful. Hence the term malware, to refer to all forms of malicious software, and the migration of security software targeted at a particular class of threat in to more all-encompassing anti-malware tools.
Important: the “Windows Defender” you might find pre-installed in some earlier versions of Windows is Every so often, Windows Defender comes under fire for rating lower than other security packages in tests published online.

Just as you can copy a file from one disk to another and have copies on both disks, a computer virus is in part defined by its ability to make copies of itself.
Exactly how a virus does this depends on its type, but can include propagation over removable media such as USB drives, networks, or network-based activities such as user downloads.
