Default spyware killer

sup ?
I came back from a month vacation and a person who had used my PC let some spyware sneak into my system.

I ran NEWEST AD-AWARE and it found MOST of it but not all.
I also deleted my cookies and Temp files.
Still there are some annoying popups and dialers that keep on coming up on my screen

Are there any alternatives that could make those problems go away ?

Tx for any help

If you're using IE you might consider switching to another browser... Opera lets you turn off popups and I've found that to be a welcome relief from the nuisance they present.
