License: Freeware (paid versions optional)
Description: LavaSoft’s AdAware is an extremely reputable program for getting rid of malicious software or files on your computer, not viruses, but advertisement programs and other annoying and borderline dangerous junk that hijacks your computer. A free version is available for noncommercial use.
SpyBot S&DSpyBot S&D
License: Freeware
Description: One of the best spyware removers on the market (rivaling AdAware), SpyBot S&D performs deep scans of your computer to find commercial junk. The new version provides a realtime scanner (which I don’t use, as it can mess with certain settings) and the ability to immunize your computer against certain threats so they can’t ever be installed. Best when used in conjunction with SpywareBlaster.
License: Freeware
Description: SpywareBlaster is a program with a huge database of known spyware and adware threats, and it installs “kill bits” on your computer that prevent any of it from ever being installed.
