best spyware program

My wife just fell victim to the spyware sheriff and even went a further step and paid for the download w/credit card.  I had her stop payment and removed the culprit.  Now....my question is what is a good spyware program that will get rid of all the spyware sheriff stuff that keeps popping up and also cleanout all the other rogue spyware.  Thanks

This link gives you instructions for removing Spware Sheriff using either Adaware or SpyBot - both of which can be downloaded for free: http://elamb.blogharbor.com/hacked/removespysheriff.htm.

From experience I would happily recommend Adaware and Spybot. Personally though I also really like Microsoft Windows Defender: http://www.microsoft.com/athome/security/spyware/software/default.mspx

Adaware: http://www.lavasoft.de/software/adaware/
Spybot: http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/index.html

Hope that this works for you.

For the future, I would suggest installing Windows Defender from:


it is free and works fairly well. Also, be careful what links and pop-ups you click on - that is the best protection...
