Ad-Aware has a free download that will eliminate some of the spyware but not all unfortunately. Here is the link to the free download, and its a pretty good program. http://www.lavasoft.de/support/download/#free
There are two programs that are really good but have to be purchased online though. Registry Doctor, and Spyware Doctor. Here are the links to those for you too Maureen. If you do know how to clean your registry then you could run the free Spyware Doctor to find them, but then you have to eliminate them in the registry one by one, whereas the program they sell (Registry Doctor) eliminates them all at once for you.
I bought the Registry Doctor, and it works great along with Ad-Aware! Hope that helps.
