    1. Download Spybot S&D and Ad-aware.

    2. Scan and delete in normal mode.

    3. Scan and delete in safe mode.

    4. Scan for viruses using anti-virus scanner in normal mode.

    5. Scan for viruses in safe mode.

    6. Do an online virus scan to see if you're clean.

    Oh yes, I forgot to mention Hijack This! It's not very newbie-friendly so that was why I didn't think to recommend it. When you run Hijack This!, do not delete whatever it detects, but rather:

    Post your results onto a forum where clever people will help you. =D

    I like CWShredder, Its a small program made for finding Cool Web Search which is like one of the hardest bits of spyware to get rid of due to the fact that alot of anti-spyware tools cant find or remove it. So if you ever get spyware called CWS google for this fantastic tool.
