You can't rely just on those two tools. To properly clean a system, I
start with AdAware, then run Spybot S&D, then run CWShredder, then run
HijackThis! to do any final clean-up (HijackThis! is a manual process and
you must know what you're doing). The first three programs only get
most/some of the problems but not all, so it's important to run all of
them, IMO.

Given that there are now programs purporting to be Spyware scrubbers but
that are actually spyware infectors(!) I would only trust the
above-mentioned programs.
