Hello after my trouble with my computer can someone give me advise about the best free online downloads for a Windows 98SE to protect my computer from viruses and spywares.So for the following i need a

Firewall
Antivirus
Spyware
Adware

Is there a difference between using an Adware and antivirus system and what exactly are Spywares and someone did mention Spybots sorry if i seem ignorant on these but there seems so many different things that can infiltrate and upset a computer and my AVG antivirus didnt stop the Trojan Start up 19.J from getting into my system any ideas and explantions and what free downloads would be appreciated thank you.
