AdAware and Spybot suck. Norton sucks now as well, but just for the time being. They fucked up big enough recently to keep me from ever buying their product again tho.

Trend PC-Cillin for Antivirus
Webroot Spy Sweeper for Anti-Spyware.

Also, if you're fairly computer savvy, try "Highjack this." OR it may be HiJack this." Very small program, but it does registry level editing for particularly nasty *-wares. If you don't know what you're doing, stay away from it, because you can seriously jack your system up.
