Sic semper malware

Even the kind of malware that is evil enough to tamper with Spybot Search and Destroy and Lavasoft AdAware can be eradicated with the right registry hacking, most of the time. I just spent an hour researching and removing something called InetGet2, which autoinstalled via some pop-up or else came bundled with SideStep.

I'm not sure what it is, besides a malicious data logger, but it really does seem to cirvumvent at least Spybot Search and Destroy.

Anyone here use anything for regular scanning and manual cleanup of spyware, adware and malware besides Spybot S&D? I have one copy of Norton Systemworks 2003, but it doesn't seem to do much against the nastiest of the nasty.
