Default Spyware/Adware Help

I got this crap on my PC, its "Antispyware Pro XP", its a spyware virus, cant get rid of it. Anyone have a suggestion for a free spyware/adware remover. I just renewed my Norton and bought Stopzilla, neither fixed it, any help is appreciated.

It looks pretty new.
Not much on Google.
What I typically do is go to the more reputable virus scanner websites and run about three online virus scans (Panda, McAfee, TrendMicro, etc.). No single scanner will detect 100% of viruses. After they are done, I then run Ad-Aware followed by Spybot Search & Destroy.
But, again, it's probably too early for a fix.

There are a couple of nasty ones out there right now that do a good job as passing themselves off as legit. I spent 4 hours trying to get it off of as friend's computer. Finally after several reboots Spyware Doctor and AVG did the trick.
I heard on Kim Komando's show that Spybot will take care of this one too.
