Here are a few others that I haven't yet seen mentioned.  Most of these are
not free but you can down load free evaluation copies.  

Spy Sweeper  http://www.webroot.com
Spyware Scanner  http://www.aluriasoftware.com
PestPatrol  http://www.pestpatrol.com
SpywareBlaster  http://www.wilderssecurity.com
Spycop  http://www.spycop.com

Interestingly, all these programs along with Ad-aware and Spybot seem to
detect different things.  So it appears to me that there is no one solution
that will detect all you would like.

Good luck!

Subject: Ad-aware

I have been tasked with identifying suitable anti-trojan-ware for 
workstations.  Ive been looking at AdAware.  Its free and seems to do the 
job.  Im wondering what is the catch.?

Has anyone done a review of antitrojan sofrware?  Id like to know if there 
is a suitable/cheap/supported product that we can use to compliment sophos 
that will protect against malicious code, trojans, session hijacking and 
other web nasties.
