I hate 'em too. Whats the best software or what do you use to remove them? Any recommendation or personal experience please? : )

Wow .. we actually need more than 1 spyware software to detect and ensure our system's safety?

Adaware looks more professional, but I believe both is relatively excellent in carrying out its intended duties .. but still which is better? : )

At one time it was Adaware all the way for me. That was until I got something that it would not get rid of. I tried spybot and it did the trick. Later, Adaware would take care of the problem after an updated reference file. Either one works very well. The key is to make sure and update regularly as new spyware crops up regularly.
