How much longer do I have to wait to get rid of spyware or malware. Is there a website that can check if I have spyware left or how much spyware I have? Sometimes my laptop would act weird. And I know it's the spyware effects. I just got rid of the virus, but how much longer can I get rid of spyware or malware?

What are you talking about?
Did you get infected, again?
Did you follow ALL of SifuMike's suggestions, in your HJT post?

No i'm not infected again. I'm just asking if there is a website that can check if you have spyware or adware. Like PandaActive Scan can detect if you have virus and spyware. But is there a website just detect spyware?

There are plenty of free online scanners besides Panda.
Trend Micro Housecall <- Use "Autoclean" and manually delete what it can't clean.
F-Secure Online Scanner. <- Be sure to follow the directions on the F-Secure page for proper Installation. (also checks for rootkits).
BitDefender Online Scanner. <- Add a check by "Autoclean".
Kaspersky Webscan. <- check the option to use the Extended database (does not remove anything but will provide a log of anything it finds).
eTrust Antivirus Web Scanner. <- "Cure" whatever is found. Be sure to read the eTrust Antivirus Scanner Help Guide before scanning.
Ewido Online Malware Scan
a-squared Web Malware Scanner. <- There are several options. Default is Smart Scan which is fast and scans the most important folders

What they detect depends on the definitions used. Each vendor has its own definition of what constitutes spyware and scanning your computer using different criteria will yield different results.

You should be looking toward prevention rather than detection after the fact with a layered defense using several products (including an effective firewall) to supplement your anti-virus.

The Freeware Replacements For Common Commercial Apps topic list several online scans, for different types of infections.
