most spyware trys to protect itself by hiding within system restore. Turn off system restore then run your programs again with it turned off. when you get through then turn it back on.
start> right click my computer>properties>system restore > check the " turn off system restore box then apply/Ok out.

Default And...

Do as lurkswithin says but run your ad/spy/malware tools from safe mode. Nails the nasties before they get loaded up and running.

For hard to remove. Do as said above. but then Boot to safe mode....

Also Make sure you dont have any browser highjacks.. They will plant more spyware.

ms antispyware misses alot of things... if that is all that you are using, try ad-aware
www.lavasoftusa.com
spybot search and destroy
www.safer-networking.net I think it is

and of course run them in safe mode as posted above

It's better to run more than one spyware program as none of them will catch every instance of spyware on your PC. I run Ad-Aware, Spybot Search & Destroy, and MS Anti-spyware. I've never had any problems.
