A quick look around shows CounterSpy getting great reviews from PCWorld and Download.com. It has "real-time protection" as does SpySweeper so there would be a conflict with registry changes when installing programs and the like but this is easily overcome if you set up only one of them to run at start up. You can still scan with both. I regularily scan with Ad-Aware and Spybot at the same time for instance, and then pick one to make the deletions.
Download.com has a 15 day free trial of CounterSpy so why not give it a try? You can disable Spysweper from running at startup during that time to see if you like it.
