Default spyware troubles

Well, I just got home to find my sister downloading Sims skins and turns out they were spyware. Now my computer is ridden with it like no other. What'* considered to be the best spyware remover? I am so mad.

Wont let me install it. I think I got some pretty severe spyware. I went into msconfig to stop the spyware from starting up so i can delete it and it keeps reenabling itself. I guess it gets redone tomorrow.

Windows Defender

Spyware Blaster; Down load here

(This program doesn't scan for and clean spyware--it prevents it from being installed in the first place. SpywareBlaster prevents the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, dialers, browser hijackers, and other potentially unwanted programs. It can also block spyware/tracking cookies in IE and Mozilla/Firefox, and restrict the actions of spyware/ad/tracking sites.)

Those mentioned are OK for free, but PestTrap is the best I've seen and do a very deep scan I havent found in others. After I bought it I was amazed at how much stuff it brought up and destroyed and my computer went back to top speed.
