Best program to get rid of adware/spyware

I have Windows ME, and would like to know which is the best for my computer. Have had spybot in the past, last time I had it installed it kept freezing at the "clean up stage", so I uninstalled it.
Any suggestions?

Thanks

Ad-aware click here plus latest Spybot click here

Also Spywareblaster (prevents spyware getting in in the first place) click here

There have been tests, no spyware cleaner is 100% successful. The last tests I saw of the ones tested Counterspy was one of the best, its free for 30 days I think after that you pay about £15 a year, adaware and spybot are both free. The recommendation was to run 2 spyware programs to hopefully get rid of all the spyware. I have all three that I mentioned above and have no problems with any of them.

Thanks for the suggestions. Another question, is it best to have two programs installed, eg. adware and spybot?
Thanks

Yes, they each find things the other misses.
