Default Spyware Sucks!

Does anyone know how I can rid my computer of the nasty stuff that is spyware? I have Ad-aware, and it gets rid of some of it, but not all of it. I am sick of random pop-ups and additions to my IE toolbar without my consent and stuff.

Got the same nasty problem before. Insatlling this two anti-spy utils didnt do the trick but it surely help. Most of the its a worm and you need to delete their entries from your registry and some files associated to it by searching each files.
did it change your homepage? because you can easily identify the author through this homepage.

U may try this
One disk to rule them all,
One disk to bind them,
One disk to hold the files
And in the darkness grind \'em.
