Spybot search and Destroy is another good one.

spywareinfo has some good ideas. I have used their Hijack This... to spot stubborn stuff myself but it needs lots of care. I also always use the IE-spyad "blocker" they list which I find works well and very easily (it's website makes an interesting read or just scroll the page to the big download box and get the IE-spyad.exe from there.) Both are free.
EDIT: and BHODemon for a very quick spot check for an active browser hijacker perhaps before using removal software.

You could look at SpywareGuard and Prevx for continuous monitoring of incoming nasties.
