    http://www.spywareterminator.com/

    Pretty good app for free.

    Found some of my test files (like eicar.txt, that just has the eicar string which isnt dangerous), and notified me that the file wasnt dangerous (which it isnt). But the amazing thing is that it found it, and reported it to me, and was correct in saying it was no longer a threat. The other 5 spyware software I tested did not even report and/or find it.

    And it is xp, xp64, vista, vista64 compatible.

    Edit:
    I strongly advise against installing the crawler toolbar (web security guard) though.
    It seriously slowed down my browsing, and even seemed to affect my general windows speed.
    Spywareterminator by itself is great though.
