Search this forum, you'll find several pointers to good anti-spyware software.
As for protecting, keep your system up2date and watch what you click and/or accept.
Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

For a very thorough online scanner try this:
There are three free tools here:
More free applications here:
Then spybot search & destroy. Remember to run the "immunise"
Then Spyware Blaster:
If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

If you start searching around, you will find quite a few different security tools. Just make sure you research a tool before downloading it... look at forums and what not... Some of the "removal tools" are not what they seem. Stick with Nihil's suggestions, and throw in a couple of others for the sake of thoroughness. If you think you are infected, boot into safe mode [F5 while booting for Safemode, F8 for boot menu] before running the scans. You are more likely to come out with a clean system that way. Hope this helps... Welcome to AO.

I find www.filehippo.com handy for this sort of operation. Easier to remember than lots of separate URLs
If the world doesn't stop annoying me I will name my kids ";DROP DATABASE;" and get revenge.

My personal favourites are AdAware, Spybot Search and Destroy, and Windows Defender.
