    Malwarebytes is the best, try it.

    EDIT: If you have an anti virus program on, you need to turn it off for the malwarebytes program to run. If you dont have that problem, reinstall malwarebytes, but rename it to anything because the malware you might have a blocker to running malwarebytes.

    Yes, it is a good and trusted software.

    You can also try the free version of malwarebytes.

    which is also a trusted software.

    Don't trust any other spyware softwares, as these are most likely spyware themselves.
