mvps.org is no longer recommending Spybot S&D or Ad-Aware due to poor testing results. See here - (scroll down and read under Freeware Antispyware Products)
A more effective alternative is Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.
If you use Internet Explorer, I'd also recommend switching your Web browser to Mozilla Firefox (which I use) or Google Chrome.

Not really a malware removal program but used in conjunction with the Bleeping Computer Start Up list at the top of this page the Sysinternals Autoruns program can really speed up your PC by weeding out the programs that aren't needed at start up. Columns to concentrate on are Logon, Services and Winlogon. You can either delete the program or more likely uncheck it so that it doesn't start up with the PC but only on demand. Just put the name of the file into the Start Up list search box here and it will tell you if it needs to be open at start up or not.
