FWIW, I run both Spybot and Ad-Aware.
Ad-Aware always finds 2 or 3 items that Spybot missed.

There's a new online scan called "PestScan" <http://www.pestscan.com>
PestScan found _A LOT_ of items that Spybot and Ad-Aware missed on
my machine. (both bad cookies & Reg entries)

The following is from the "Langalist"
4) Speaking Of Anti-Adware...
PestPatrol recently launched a free, comprehensive online spyware detection service:

PestScan from PestPatrol is a web-based program that runs right from the PestPatrol website, downloading just a few small components to the user's computer. It is designed to provide a quick and easy way to scan Windows PCs for spyware, keyloggers, and other computer pests in the places they are most likely to be hiding. The PestScan results link directly to PestPatrol's extensive pest information database, enabling users to find out exactly what the threat level is.

PestScan can be accessed through the PestScan button on the http://www.pestpatrol.com home page or directly at http://www.pestscan.com . The PestScan microsite is self-contained, with simple instructions for downloading the ActiveX code, running the scan, and interpreting the results, as well as direct links to the master pest information database and the rest of the PestPatrol site. The technology behind PestScan represents the first publicly available implementation of the overhauled and streamlined engine that will underlie future releases of the PestPatrol product range.

It looks good so far. Check it out!

The only problem is: The scan is free, but they want you to pay for
the removal. However, you can use their readout to trace/delete the
offending items.
