    The Spybot which you are using is a probably a rogue program.
    If you have paid, then you have been cheated.

    Spybot - Search & Destroy is a free software. You can download it from here:
    http://www.spybot.info/en/download/index.html (Downloads Page)
    http://www.spybot.info/en/mirrors/index.html (Mirrors Page)

    I recommend you to try download directly from Safer-Networking host.

    EDIT do what Tashi says

    "best tool" depends on what the malware is
    Do you know what your next infection will ber?
    let me know and I'll suggest the best tool

    Spybot Immunize, SD Helper and T-timer are excellent tools
    The Malware Bytes Forum recommends Spybot as a valuable scanner as do many other professional sites.

    A good Anti Virus like Avast
    and a good third party firewall are essential
    If you run Internet Explorer something to block Active X malware
    a Hosts file
    lots of things to consider
    have you run Secunia software inspector?

    If you think that you are currently infected
    I suggest you go to the malware removal forum
    read the stickies at the top and let them help you there
