How to load spyware on my computer

This probably isnt asked too much here, but for test purposes, I would like to find places where I can install SpyWare on my computer and then test the different SpyWare remover programs out there in order to find the best one.  If someone can recommend websites or a location to do this, that would be great.

The SpyWare program would be used for a corporate office for less than 30 computers, and I need something that doesnt scan for a half hour like McAfee SpyWare remover seems to do.  Recommendations would be nice, however, my project right now is to buy and test 4 or 5 different kinds.

Thanks in advance!

Here is a nice site that has lots of useful information you can look at. As for testing spyware you could start by maybe downloading Bonzi Buddy. But with a little searching around I am sure there has been a very large amount of people that have already done the testing for you and have the information already at hand without having to actually individually test each application your self. The below link seems like it has alot of useful information. Mcaffe seems to work great for us here.

The Microsoft antispyware is a good program for preventing as well as getting rid of spyware.I mean I know there are some other great programs out there but as far as being user friendly and getting the job done I agree with nikorba on this one.

Google "Drive-by" and "Spyware" you'll find lots of information, including common offenders so you can cruise to their sites/download their spyware.  Or just download something like Kazaa that comes pre-infested...
