I was thinking, since spy and adware seems to be running out of control nowadays, what methods have you come up with to aviod the intrusion/infection of such software.

What programs have you found that actually work?

I've tried several myself, Adaware and Spybot being about the best, but neither of them completely removing all of the spy/adware.

The only program I've found thus far that completly eliminates all spyware, has been AVG virus scanner.

I was thinking that this would make for a good topic for a few reasons. One, so that we can all pool our ideas on eliminating spyware, and two, attract more ppl to the site because it seems spyware is a hot topic.
