Ad-Aware 2008, Spybot S&D, A-squared, Spyware blaster are all good in
Vista. Spyware blaster is a real time monitor, A-squared is good except
it takes forever to do a scan, and all these are freeware.

RE: spam spyware
The 3 below are a good combination:

http://www.spybot.info/en/index.html

Spybot Search & Destroy 1.6 is a very good, FREE Anti-Spyware Program.
Download, install, update, and immunize your System with it.
Then SCAN with it.
Update it, and scan your System once a fortnight.

http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html

SpywareBlaster 4.1 is a non-intrusive, FREE Anti-Spyware Program (no
scanning by you!).
SpywareBlaster prevents the installation of many so-called spyware, adware
and malware programs by disabling the CLSIDs of popular spyware ActiveX
controls, and also prevents the installation of any of them via a webpage
Update it once a fortnight.

http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php

Malwarebytes is as the name says, a Malware Remover!
For the Free version scroll down their page to either download from
Download.com, or Major Geeks.com

Download, install, and update.

There are no *good* spyware programs. All spyware programs are bad and
should be avoided. Instead you should install and use *anti*-spyware
programs. ;-)

Also note that no anti-spyware is anywhere near perfect, so you should use
more than one to give you decent protection. I recommend using two or more
from the following list (all of which work under Vista):

Spybot Search and Destroy
AdAware
Spyware Blaster
Windows Defender
a-Squared
Super Antispyware

Re: spam spyware
I have seen far too many users download hoax anti-spyware and anti-virus
programs by Google searches. It's wise to seek recommendations.

If one can't maneuver their way around a Google search and find a
reputable download site, they're too damned stupid to be operating a
computer and to be seeking advice from complete strangers.

Re: spam spyware
You were absolutely right to ask here. Many of the bad programs are
the easiest to come across. What the "poor thinking" naysayers do
not take into account is that you are not looking for just one person
to recommend something. Rather to sort the many. Good move!

AdAware - Spybot Search and Destroy- MalwareBytes - Spyware
Blaster - Super AntiSpyware.
