Immunization with SpyBot allows the program to stay in memory and guard against specific threats that it knows about. This list of known malware is updated when you update the program though you need to re-immunize to get the benefit for new additions.

Malware is a general name used to describe various intrusive software such as spyware, adware, and sometimes trojanware.

SpyWare is any program that collects data without your knowledge and permission and makes that data available to a person unknown to you.

AdWare is software that is supported by advertising thus it usually displays various banners. It can also be spyware in that the banners can give information back to the software vendor or others. This information is then sold.
