    Hi, pranavt,

    Unfortunately there is no such powerful anti-spyware program that would detect and remove absolutely all kinds of pests and viruses. You have to use several of them and regularly scan your PC. Of course, not all anti-spywares are effective enough. But there are several recommended products that you should have.

    1. Microsoft AntiSpyware Beta - reliable, often updated product that detects a lot and provides helpful information. It also have best real-time monitoring tools.
    2. Ad-Aware SE - powerful tool, but sometimes misses recent spyware.
    3. Spyware Doctor - a very nice app, detects practically all parasites, even not examined yet ones.

    If you want something different take a look on reviews of other products on the SpywareWarrior and 2-spyware.com.

    I suggest keeping Spyware Doctor and Ad-Aware Personal. Spyware Blaster is also very nice and HijackThis! is a must have program ;].
