What is the best way to find and get rid of Spyware and Addware.

Adaware form click here and Microsoft's new programme click here are more than enough. The excellent click here is also a must-have and will clear all the crud. Best thing is that all of them are free.

I've used the programs but now its just figuring out what to do with all the items thay have found.258MB on CCLEANER and 175 items on ADWARE SE.

I suggest you also download spywareblaster and spywareguard, both free downloads. They will help prevent many of the problems getting on to your computer. Since I installed them, Adaware and SpybotS&D both have far less items for removal than before, when I scan.

You can safely delete all, especially the Adaware ones. You may notice that your computer runs faster after the mass delete.

I have used the free download 'Spybot' for some time and found it works well.
