It doesn't seem that spybot is free. It will identify spyware but you need
to pay to have it remove it.
I can not find the microsoft.public.security.homeusers newsgroup. I have 2
news servers - one from my ISP and MSNEWS.MICROSOFT.COM - Actually the one
from my ISP seems to have more microsoft groups than the microsoft one.
Where should I be looking for the group you recommend?

manually remove adware??
There are many free tools for this - AdAware, Spybot, Windows Defender,
etc. But much depends on the kind of adware/malware you refer to. Try
posting questions such as this in the microsoft.public.security.homeusers
group and you should get a lot of help in there.
