There is a reason why you are having a hard time finding a free spyware removal program.
There simply isn't one that works like it should.
New spyware threats are being released all the time. It takes money to be able to constantly update your spyware removal program to combat these new spyware programs.
This is why almost ALL of the good spyware removal programs have some kind of fee. It is usually worth it to go ahead and pay the fee, to remove all your spyware infections.
A couple months back, I suffered a major spyware infection, and thought I would have to buy a new computer.
I tried all of the free spyware removal programs that I could find, and none of them seemed to totally remove my spyware infection.
It wasn't until I came across a website on google that gave honest reviews of spyware removers that I found AdwareAlert.
I downloaded and scanned my computer and found over 200 spyware infections. I registered the product, and removed all the spyware from my computer.
This program has kept my computer running fast and spyware free for the last couple of months.

No single anti-spyware application is perfect so I recommend using Ad-aware and Spybot (they are free). Other free anti-spyware programs would be AVG Anti-spyware (formally Ewido), Super Anti-spyware and SpywareBlaster.
I strongly recommend using FireFox, it's a far better and safer alternative to Internet Explorer. If you add-on McAfee SiteAdvisor, it will warn you of potentially harmful sites. I also recommend CCleaner which is a free system optimization and privacy tool.
Webroot Spy Sweeper is rated as the best, but it's not free (see the Consumer Search source).
Running these programs in Safe Mode (tap F8 after powering on the computer and choose to boot to Safe Mode) can be more effective.Source(s): http://www.consumersearch.com/www/software/anti-sp... http://www.lavasoftusa.com/ http://www.safer-networking.org/en/ http://www.getfirefox.com http://www.ccleaner.com

Here is my choice of a very good spyware program, I highly recomend it and so do others here. (http://www.superantispyware.com) This is good and its FREE, download the free version and run it right away. Make sure to Un-install all of the other spyware programs that you have before installing this one, you can have 2 spyware programs at any givening time but only 1 antivirus. Good Luck now get busy.
