    I haven't used an anti spyware program in a while, but I think it's time. Anyone have a link to a good spyware removal program?

    Thanks

    Microsoft Antispyware worked best for me to remove some pesky spyware. Its free.

    +1 on all the above.
    I have been using Adware free version and Mcafee virus/spyware.
    In general using one or two with a virus program should cover you well.

    Spysweeper is truly good software. When all else fails it'll usually clean things off. It's actually worth buying if you have some bad stuff running. They do give you one free update with the trial so keep that in mind.

    The MS Anti-Spyware is actually pretty good and free as well. Leave it running and it does a good job of keeping stuff from infecting in the first place so you don't have to bother with scanning and removal. Also, being by microsoft I think they've added some hooks to it that lets it get in and stop things that others have issues with. Having the source code to the OS and any hidden API's definitly put things in their favor for being able to remove things.
