How can I get rid of spyware?

Question

I currently have a DSL Modem that worked for a while. All of a sudden, without downloading any new information onto my computer, my internet stopped working. Every time I try to bring up my MSN or Internet Explorer I receive an error message. I have done everything to check and make sure that the modem is connected and working properly. I even called my internet provider and they claimed that "everything seems to be working fine, so I must have virus or spyware blocking me from using the Internet. They gave me absolutely no ideas on how to verify that I do have one, and even if I did, I have no clue how to get rid of it. How do I find out what is going on with my computer without paying $150 for someone to tell me and how can I get rid of spyware and/or the virus that is casuing this problem? Thanks
