Not sure on the password thing.

For spyware use SpyBot click here


Adaware click here

Both free.

Why not get a decent pro malware scanner on a 15 day free trial. If you like it it's only US$19.95 (less than £10) or if you don't just ditch it after 2 weeks. This one has a good name.

They also make a pretty cheap but effective pro firewall I believe.

Personally I find Adaware and Spybot pretty much coveres everything, you don't get automatic scans, but it's not hard to open the program and click the button now & then.

And don't forget an good AV. Avast is good & free click here and AVG is another good free one.
