Default Spyware

I was wondering if there is anything that gets rid of spyware for free that I can use because I have all kinds of spyware and pop-ups galore.

Ad-Aware
SpyBot Search & Destroy
Spyware Blaster

www.download.com is an easy stop on the first two and the third can be downloaded at the immunize screen in the "SpyBot Search & Destroy" program.

Oh yeah and start using a different browser than IE!
