What is a good sptware scanner? I currently use Spybot, because I was recommended it, but I'm not sure if it is really getting them all.

It is generally a good idea to use more than one. I use SpyBot, and I have Microsoft's AntiSpyware. There are some others. Use care and caution (and not Stop Sign) when looking for and downloading these tools.

At work (tech support....i know! i know!) we have to clean spyware for about 90% of the calls, that and fixing winsocks. We usually use adaware/cwshredder/hijackthis/manuall regedit/trendmicro. Now if there was only something that would fix i.e. so it wouldnt crash right off the bat even when there was spyware. :P
