Anti spyware
For best anti spyware my best based on my experience is SpyBot. This software is free to download as well as very much effective. Like updating antivirus you have to update spyware list also and Spybot updates its list constantly. More over it can protect from internet explorer hacks, and can controll the windows registry keys. when ever a new entry is added in registry or deleted from windows registry you would get noticed and you can allow or deny particular action. It would warn you when ever a programe is putting an entry in startup or in internet explorer defaults etc.

Browser :
If you are fed up of frequent search pages automatically coming up in your internet explorer or certain pop ups automatically open some adult sites or automatic homepage configuration, then the only answer is to either switch to latest internet explorer or give firefox 2 a try. You would feel the difference. You can download Firefox 2 which is having dictionary support like MS word. You can download Firefox with google toolbar for easier surfing by clicking the Firefox button on left panel under useful software.

The combination of these softwares can secure your pc like anything.
