    Here are the things I do to try and control spyware.

    1. Download Lavasoft Adaware. It catches most everything I find. However, for added insurance I also use CWshredder and CCcleaner.

    2. Go to My Computer. Than click on local Disk C:. Than open up the Windows folder and then open up the system 32 folder. Arrange the icons in the order that they've been modified and look at the last ones. If you hover the mouse icon over those folders, the name of the icon's creator will appear. If there is no description of the creator appears, the icon is perfectly safe to delete. You could click on properties to get further information on that particular file.

    So far, so good.
