Question Passive Spyware Scanning - Prevention is better than cure!

So far, my war against spyware is the following :-

Quote:
1. Spybot Search and Destory

then if there is still a problem....
2. Ad Aware 6.0

and there if there is still a problem....
3. HiJack This

4. HiJack This again

5. HiJack This and again

6. fdisk, format C, re-install OS as HiJack this will kill the rest of my OS is I using any further.
So far, I have used this method to clean up Spyware after the PC has been infectef. However, does any one know of any programs that will monitor your PC activities and PREVENT SPYWARE from installing in the first place. (Like your typical antivirus software)
