The ones I use are not really pro-active, but scan-and-remove.

AdAware and Spybot. Spybot does immunize your system against a bunch of stuff, though.

be sure to put on a good firewall and AV.

There is a section specifically for spyware questions. This doesn't belong in overclocking or PC modding. Moving it there
