At the risk of sounding like this is an admonishment, you really should post your question in one of the technical forums, you will get a greater respone.

Ad-aware and Spybot search and destroy are both freeware and can be accessed at the following sites:

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Here is a list put together by BC members of free applications, in case you want them:

Ad-AwareSE and Spybot Search and Destroy are perhaps the best of the anti-spyware applications, and you should use both.

coolking13,

To add to the excellent links you have been given by jgweed and dc3, here is yet one more. It may be more tailored to what you're asking for. It is also a list compiled by Bleeping Computer and it's members.
