What is the best way to prevent spywares, pop messages, emails, etc?
I have heard some free softwares can do the job (ie spybot).  I also have heard that free does not work as well as commercial ones.  What do you recommend?  I would appreciate anyone's comments.

I use two peices of software:

 Spybot S&D
 Adaware from Lavasoft

I work on (repair) about 6-8 computers a day, and have used both of these for the duration. I always put the freeware edition of these on customers computers.Keep them updated and run them at least weekly.
:D
