There are manual methods for removing
known traces of Spyware on you computer; please see How
To Remove. Also free software tools are available that should
be able to do the job for you.
Below are some of the best we're aware
of, if you know of any more software programmes that can be used
to detect and eliminate Spyware/Adware please inform us so that
we can list them.
We would also recommend using a personal
Firewall to monitor what or who is using your internet connection.
Even if your not a coprorate user this should be considered a
necessity and there are various affordable and fairly good personal
firewalls available at the moment.

Gibson Research OptOut
pre-release version (31k) Fast download, great producer, limited
list of products it will remove but worth a try. The full commercial
version should remove alot more. And certainly spend a few days
going through the wealth of info on his site.
(Note: Until the commercial version is released,
the earlier freeware edition is the only one available for download.
This version only detects Aureate spyware.)
Please note one comment I found "After

that I had not made provisions for using an alternative File Transfer
Protocol program. OptOut does not sport an "undo command". It
seems that OptOut deletes "advert.dll" and "amcis.dll" which CuteFTP

No-Aura allows you to disable communication between Aureate/Radiate
advertising enabled software and the statistical server. It does
this by adding the Aureate/Radiate server IPs to the Windows HOST
file with the IP of 127.0.0.1, which will resolve them to your
localhost. So instead of contacting the remote server, it will
simply contact your own system. Intended for temporary use in
network troubleshooting, other use may violate the license agreement
of your advertising supported software.
