Spybot-Search@Destroy and
Ad-Aware SE Personal,

Best regards.

The best one that i have seen so far is the one thats free from Microsoft
its in Beta atm but it removed all the adware from a computer of mine which
was loaded down with it. took about 4 runs and 4 times of reporting it to
who ever it is supposed to goto and it got rid of it!
