I am getting popups from PC Privacy Cleaner and Antivirus 2008 PRO.  How can I go about removing these form my system without buying the software that these applications are prompting me to buy to get rid of the program?

I would suggest using Rogue Remover:

Thanks.  Ill give it a try.  Why these two?  I haven't heard of them.  I have Spyware Doctor and Adaware on my PC.  Are these much better?

I had to use 5 different spyware programs to resolve the issue.  Superantispyware did nothing and Rogue Remover found nothing also.  The main ones I used was Norton Antibot, Spybot S & D, and Cleanxxxx.-Forgot the name.
