Note that not all popups are evil, not all cookies are bad and virus is not the same as spyware.

For Spyware you can download the Microsoft Windows Defender for free or use AdAware (there's a free version).

For a free anti-virus I suggest Avast.

I use AVG http://www.grisoft.com for my antivirus. Works well (catches virus's that norton doesn't) and updates every few days. Small virus definition file updates as well.

I recommend Avast over AVG, but they are both good (and free)
