I personally have been using the following free software for about a year on a Win ME & a Win XP.
AVG antivirus, Sygate Personal Firewall, Spyblaster, Spybot S&D, and AdAware .
They are all free to download and use, plus free updates.

FREE AVG ANTI-VIRUS PROGRAM (updates free also) (download)

Spybot S&D works the best of any spyware removal protection program. The free updates are the best. The program is so E-Z to use, also.

I personally could not get Spybot SD to work properly, it would hang everytime I would search for spyware, exactly when it was half way done, stopping at the same place each time I ran it.
