This one is pretty good and works well with 7
Malwarebytes.org

This one is not bad either and it also works with 7

However neither have real-time protection/auto updates unless you buy them. Great for manual scanning though

Keep SpywareBlaster and keep it updated!

Quote:
SpywareBlaster focuses on prevention and protection. Removal deals with threats after they've already had a chance to wreak havoc and compromise your data. There are plenty of freely-available spyware removal tools. But few of them do anything to help keep your system secure. That's why we initially released SpywareBlaster, and that's why we've continued to strengthen its already powerful protection - to stop potentially unwanted software before it has a chance to get on your machine.
