I do tech support as a living, been testing a bunch of programs and AdAware still finds the most and it's free. Trying to remove spyware with an anti-virus program won't do much because they're not virus. Would be like using a screwdriver to hammer in nails, not the best tool to use. Scanning in safe mode usually gets more spyware as well, press F8 on bootup (usually after the HP, Dell or whatever logo) and select 'safe mode' from the list.

Also TrendMicro has a great free online virus scanner:
