anti-spyware:
spybot s&d (enable tea-timer when installing, it's awesome)
Spywareblaster, keeps the spyware out, this is the best there is. Some say it doesn't work so well but I have had it for maybe a month now and my anti-spyware programs haven't found a single spyware thingy.
spyware doctor, never tried but I heard that its good.

And if u want more just go to www.download.com or www.majorgeeks.com and search for anti-spyware.

Spyware Doctor, SpySweeper, Micro-Antispyware, Counterspy, Pest Patrol, Ad-Aware, Ewido Security Suite.

BTW, MS Anti-Spyware kind of sucks. It searches 22000 files on my computer while I've tried the others and they've done way over 100,000.
