If your search doesn't turn up anything, you might want to try HijackThis and CWS Shredder.

Also, this site is an awesome resource for dealing with spyware.

Also, for god sakes, stop using Internet Explorer. Simply using a good browser will prevent 99% of sypware. http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/

It doesn't have to be a good browser. It just has to not be IE.

There are only two viable options(on Windows); Opera and Firefox/Mozilla. I'd consider both good browsers.
