Best Freeware? Spyware/Popup Stooper etc.

I would be very interested in people's best freeware solutions to spyware and pop up stoppers.

I use Windows 200 and have Zone Alarm as my firewall, AVG as my Anti Virus and also use Spybot & AdAware regularly. Does anyone know if Spybot and AdAware have 'spyware' themselves? I've also got FreeSurfer installed which is supposed to stop pop ups - HOWEVER - it seems I've now got something on my system following a d/l of MSN Messenger Plus which keeps making pop ups appear. I have since deleted MEssenger Plus but I still keep getting these pop ups? Any ideas greatfully recieved (free ones hopefully)

Thanks

MSN Messenger Plus - has spyware - you can install without spyware - click here - on some versions. MSN Messenger Plus carries LOP Spyware...

Spybot and AdAware are Spyware free though.

Gaz 25 - thats something else. Messenger Service NOT MSN Messenger Plus...

Rauf - you might want to use the program in the Gaz25s thread anyway.
