I absolutely love Spybot: Search and Destroy, and I've never had any issues with it. Plus, it's freeware.
Here's a link to their homepage:
I have been using Counterspy for a couple years now, and I like it because it tells you exactly what the spyware does and if it is low risk or high risk. And recommends whether to remove it, quarantine it, or ignore it. When I first started using it, there would be as high as 15-20 spywares found during a scan of my computer. Now there are 0-5. They are easily and quickly removed, and your system is backedso that if something goes wrong, you can restore it back to what it was.
I use Zone Alarm. It lets you know immediately if a site is trying to get into your system. It pops up and tells you what it is and the risk and you have the choice to leave it or remove it. (10/15/2006)
I'm using AVG antispyware & anti virus. They are both free & work well. We use to spend over a hundred dollars a year on Norton but I think this is better & it's free ta boot. (05/21/2007)

Eventually discovered Trend Micro Antispyware (Housecall's stand alone product). I like it. Got it on sale at Fry's.
My daughter would go all over the internet and the free programs mentioned didn't help enough. This one does.
Also, Spy-Bot kept on hanging up my computer. Don't know why, because I used it successfully a number of times at first. Couldn't do anything to make it function. Of course, this happened after an update. (05/22/2007)
