Well if you are looking for just a scanner, plenty can be reccommened on this forum
Spybot Search and Destroy
I do know Malwarebytes can be purchased to include real time protection
Recently i've found microsoft security essentials.
AVG free claims to do anti spyware
I can't say how effective the microsoft program is, i don't seem to have much luck purposely infecting myself.
I tried for 3 hours straight trying to become infected by anti virus live / pc protector, but no dice.
(i was trying to get infected to see which programs could remove it as well as how the initial infection occurs so i could try to block it at work)
worst i was able to do was get infected by a program called anti virus, SAS cleaned it right off.
I will definitley reccommend to utilize spybot search and destory along with javacools spyware blaster to run the immunizations.
-This will atleast update your hosts file to block some known malicious sites.
