If you want an all-in-one solution, AOL's ActiveScan is probably best:

Otherwise, go for AVG antivirus and Spybot antiSpyware:

All free and very good :)

Free Virus - Avast (http://www.avast.com/) i have used it for the last 2 years and have had no bad experiences with it. It regularly updates itself and it does not drain all your resources

Free Spyware And Adware - download and install all these programs Ad-Aware (http://www.lavasoftusa.com/) Spybot Search And Destroy (http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html) Windows Defender (http://www.microsoft.com/athome/security/spyware/software/default.mspx) once again i use these regularly with no bad experiences

Also download a cracking (i don't mean illegal LOL) program called CCleaner (http://www.ccleaner.com/) and watch your computer free up disk space and perform faster

I can personally vouch for all these programs as they are run each and every day

Kaspersky have a free beta version. Not only is it completely stable, Kaspersky is widely regarded as one of the best AV companies out there. This version includes AV, firewall, anti-spam and (limited) anti-spyware.

If you don't want a beta version AOL's Active Virus Shield is free and simply a rebranded version of Kaspersky AV.

As for spyware, I'll vouch for a combination of Windows Defender, Spybot Search & Destroy and Spyware Blaster. Plus if you're really bothered, install Firefox and get the NoScript and CookieSafe extensions and allow only sites you trust to set cookies and use Javascript.

I use AVG and find it very good. You can download a months trial of their anti virus spyware for free.
