    Personally I would recommend either Ad-Aware or Spybot although if I were to be pushed I would probably say Spybot. I've used both for many years and always had great success with both although to be honest I would also highly recommend browsing our Antivirus, Spyware, Firewalls & Security section for ratings and/or comments from others. Hope this helps.

          One more, the Spyware Terminator with the integration of Clam AV.

            In truth, there is not a great anti-spyware program (which includes real time protection) available among the freebies. If people cannot afford to pay for the one of the better commercial anti-spyware products, I would rather see them install some sort of HIPS based freeware to compliment existing traditional security products.

            HIPS does not rely on a signature data base but rather identifies possible threats via discernible behavioural traits. Threatfire (from PC Tools) is a very good choice, especially for the less experienced user. Threatfire is pre-configured to start working right out of the box and doesn't require the high level of user input which is often associated with HIPS based apps.

            My first choice for the more savvy user would be Online Armor Free Firewall which also includes a pretty good HIPS component.
