There are many free programs to remove spyware. If you use a search engine to look for "spyware removal program", you'll find various tools that can search through your computer for all executables, libraries and the Windows registry. The programs will compare the found files against known spyware traces, and suggest removal when a match is found.

If you have an antivirus, you can try running it. My favorite program is MalwareBytes, it has a large list of spyware it will remove, and it's free!

Try Windows MST (Malicious Software Removal Tool), free from Microsoft. Other good free applications include Malware Bytes, Spybot, Hijack This!, and CC Cleaner. Also, install and run Microsoft Security Essentials, an excellent free antivirus program to avoid future problems. Check to make sure your firewall is up and running correctly.

If you have no pre-installed software for this then you will need to download some. I personally like to use a couple including Ad-Aware, Highjack This, and Avg Antivirus. All are available for free online and should be able to remove any spyware you have installed.
