CCleaner is very popular - I don't like it. I don't think of it as a "spyware" program - it is a "registry cleaner" and in my experience creates more problems than it solves.

Spybot Search and Destroy is a very good anti-spyware tool, but I think you need the paid version for any serious protection. I haven't looked at Ad-Aware in a while, I thought that was just an ad blocker.

Avira is a decent free AV tool, if you can manage to ignore its constant pleas for you to "upgrade" to the paid version.
