What is the best way to get rid of spyware from a network standpoint i.e. can you use some kind of login script or group policy to get rid of spyware much as you can use a console to manage virus software?

thanks

We have 1660 computers and it is a school district and we now don't let students download. I was looking for a more automated way than going to each computer. I am familiar with most of there tools.

PestPatrol CE is designed to run as part of the login script in a network environment. It's not free but it's the only network enabled tool that I know: http://www.pestpatrol.com/pestpatrolce/
