these are links to trials/freeware programs. i personal use these programs i would not recommend any program i dont personal use. i have no had any negative effects from these programs. the extention for this is

please scan these with a anti virus before you open them.
please before u post about spyware please try some of these programs first.
many times these will remove some the more common spyware like xxx toolbar.
and many [bleep] popups.
also for ad-ware they got a extra download that will let u disable a built in spamming adding program built into windows.

Webscan is a totally awesome program. ;) It picked up some sort of Kazaa malware thingy from my PC that Ad-Aware and Microsoft AntiSpyware overlooked. Personally, I have no idea how that got into my system, seeing how I've been steering free of P2P software since I've gotten my new computer but...whatever.

Some programs I'm currently using that are on your list would be Ad-Aware, CWShredder and HijackThis. Well, I haven't actually used HijackThis on my new computer yet, but it is installed for those 'just in case' purposes. :tazz:

if you have ad-aware you should download some of the add-ons.
