Help, please! (7)

So here's my situation in a nutshell. My computer has spyware up the wazoo, and I'd like to get rid of it once and for all. I get shitty popups every minute, it seems, so I can't watch anime and whatnot (oh noes the world is ending!) without interference and surfing the web has become a pain in the ass. Even opening a file seems to take twenty seconds sometimes.

So, 4ch, can anyone help me out? I'd prefer not to have to pay for software that deletes viruses, but if that isn't possible then recommend me some cheap ones ;)

adaware, spybot.

What >>2 said, if that doesn't work: Back up your most important data and reinstall windows, since in that case, while you might still be able to remove them using special apps, maybe with a tutorial (google is your friend), just reinstalling is probably less painful.

Spybot Search & Destroy
Also I have had Spyware Blaster (blocks some known adresses in the browser) for some time and no problems since long.

AdAware & Spyboy should definitely get the job done.

As a side note, I recommend CCleaner (formerly CrapCleaner, seriously).. it'll clean out all tenporary files, epmty cache, etc.

CCleaner will delete all cookies which you may or may not want.
