Top five tips on dealing with Spyware
  1. I would start by downloading Microsoft Internet Explorer version 7. It has alot of updates that track and prevent spyware.
  2. Additionally you could download the Yahoo ToolBar which has a spyware protection as well.
  3. For standalone freeware try Spybot or Adaware.
  4. Another step that I have found that really helps, if you know roughly the date when your computer was infected, if you are running Windows XP you can do a system restore at a time a week before when you thought you got the spyware. This will take care of the problem as well.
  5. If you find that your computer is really messed up the best thing to do is to back up your data, format the hard drive and then re-install windows.
