If you want to get rid of spy-ware, I would suggest downloading Spybot and Ad-Aware. Install these, update them and then scan your PC and remove anything they find. These tend to work much better than software you can purchase. Experts use both of these.
I assume you are talking about free spyware removers, because "spyware" itself is free of charge!! OK, so you think you are infected? Here are some freebies to help you out.
1. spybot search and destroy 2. windows defender 3. spyware doctor 4. spyware blaster 5. ad-aware 2008
Check the program descriptions to see if they will work on Win98, which I believe they do. There are more, but this should start you on your way. Finally, most or all can be found at the following handy site...... www.filehippo.com
Ad-Aware is a great program for scanning and removing spyware and is free. Spyware Doctor removes more spyware, but cost money for the full version. The free version will scan, but won't remove much without you paying for it. It is a very good program though, and the free program will tell you if you have infections.
I recommend using all three of these programs, by doing so you have all your bases covered. AVG Free edition is an awesome program, it updates daily so you can catch even the newest viruses. Best of all it's free! Spyware Blaster is another great program, I've found that this will pick up a lot of things other programs may miss, again it's a free program. Ad-Aware is another great program, this program will also clear out any tracking cookies you may have acquired over time. I use all three of these personally and install them on every computer I build or service.
Where do I get these great free programs.
If you haven't visited CNET's http://www.download.com already you are missing out on tons of great free programs, they have everything from games demo's to music editing software, screen savers, and of course antivirus, antispyware, and antiadware programs. This site is updated frequently and includes many reviews on their content. u could simply go to this page and use the search box to find the above mentioned programs, but I'll make it easy for you, follow the below links.

System restores don't work too well. The virus/trojan has usually embedded itself beyond the restore, you're free to try it, however.
If it doesn't work, I would suggest some anti-virus/spyware scanning software. Here are two, one for viruses/vulnerabilities/some spyware and one dedicated to spyware. Both are absolutely free.
http://housecall.trendmicro.com runs from your web browser (I would suggest using Internet Explorer).
http://www.download.com/3405-8022-5153545.html?part=dl-ad-aware&subj=dl&tag=top5 This is Ad-aware, it will remove the spyware on your computer. This one needs to be downloaded.
If those do not work, then you have two choices: reformat the HDD (low-level format in some cases), or take it to a professional who can save your data and remove the trojan successfully.
Additionally, you can try Googling the trojan by its name and you'll usually find removal instructions. Symantec and Microsoft have the most accurate methods.
