No, there is no such manual way to detect and delete spyware's from computer.

You must need an anti spyware software to get rid of spyware's.

My choice to remove spyware's from my computer is Microsoft Security Essentials.

Because it provides protection against virus, malware and spyware. It is one of top best spyware used now a days.

It is free to download and provides free updates, then only requirement for this is you must have genuine/registered windows.

Without using an antivirus there is really no way of detecting and deleting a spyware manually. Your computer should be running with an antivirus to monitor all program activities within the system as well as the USB flash drive you insert on the USB port. Everything is really monitored. There is a way of deleting the spyware doing it manually but the whole process still needs the assistance of an antivirus.

One good way of protecting and avoiding your computer from getting infected by viruses and spyware is to practice a regular virus scanning on your computer. Every week or every end of the week run a quick scan on your computer. And at the end of each month run a full system scan on your entire hard drive.

This is the habit I’m practicing on my computer to make it more secure. The most common type of virus that infects a computer is a worm. Its favorite target spot is the storage folder of the System Restore which is located in the root of every drive in the folder named “System Volume Information”. You can see this folder when the option “Show hidden files and folders” is selected in the Folder Options of Windows Explorer. See image.
