Tools for scanning for Crudware
My current arsenal for clearing crudware off badly neglected PCs that the installed antivirus/internet security programs miss consists of:
Kaspersky Internet Security
Are there any other recommended free programs I should be using? Many thanks.

decrapifier (for new machines, or new builds from restore partitions etc)
Avira rescue CD (no need to have a working windows install to scan for viruses as its a linux live CD)
Combofix (for the really tough stuff that MBAM doesn't shift)

Microsoft Security Essentials does a fair job on malware and might be worth adding. No idea if it could be made into a portable app though.

I use pretty much the same - only variants are:
Rootkit - Anti-Rootkit | Free Rootkit Removal | Rootkit Detection - Sophos
Portable Antivirus - Dr.Web CureIt! (nice to have additional antivirus)
a-squared Emergency USB Stick files - a-squared Anti-Malware - all round scanner
Autoruns Autoruns for Windows to manually weed out start-up items initially
