Best SpyWare Remover

and before anyone says AdAware, I've already tried it but my pc still has spyware. Does anyone know how to get rid of this very annoying problem?

I use AdAware and Spybot.

I also scan once a week with the Norton Anti Virus and something called AVG anti virus scan.

Looks like using both together works well (for now anyway). Thanks everyone.

i also use hijack this, but i always ask for technical advise on the dell support forum first. that usually gets rid of the more stubborn ones.

check with the website of the manufacturer of your computer. they usually have some sort of technical support forums.

you have to be really careful what you delete with hijack this though.

with hijack this you kind of have to know what you're looking for. I also use the ones above and if any annoying trojans come up then sometimes safe mode is the answer to delete the problem file for good.

Allume Systems (Internet Cleanup) and Ad-aware, daily.
Norton Anti Virus, once a week.
I believe it is important to have at least two different Spyware removers.
Ad-hoc I also use Spybot-Search & Destroy.

Wow. It must be an evening for stubborn spyware as I've also had an attack that I've been trying to get rid of all evening. AdAware, spybot and a couple of others didn't help. I've downloaded Microsoft's beta test spyware remover and that seems to have done the trick, for now.
@ this crap...

the microsoft spyware removal program is pretty good actually.

probably because it is made by someone else, microsoft just bought it for some odd monopolozing reasong.

none the less i was impressed with it.
