The first thing in removing spyware and adware
is to get a spyware and adware removing program. Each program that I will
show you, can remove both adware and spyware.

Check the box for which item you would like to remove, then click Fix selected problems, and then click Yes.
The next program I am going to tell you about is Ad-Adware, and is available for free at http://www.lavasoftusa.com/
Once you have downloaded, installed, and opened Ad-Aware, you want to click the Start button. Click image to enlarge.

Make sure you have selected Preform smart system scan, and then click Next
Once the scan is complete click Next
Check all boxes, then click Next, and that's it.
The final program I will show you, and also one you should have is Microsoft's Anti-spyware, which is available at http://www.microsoft.com/athome/security/spyware/default.mspx
