I recently switched back to Avast Free Edition combined with Super Anti Spyware for virus/spyware protection from Microsoft Security Essentials. MSE worked very well, but I always thought Avast was a superb free anti virus program. With SAS being a very popular choice of folks here, I'm looking for suggestions for a secondary free spyware program that has good reviews. Any opinions welcome, thanks.

I think avast! is far superior than MSE. Respected seniors at BleepingComputer advise avast! or Avira for free anti-virus. In my experience, the detection rate of MSE is lower and it makes the computer very slow. It has not much of configurations to do. It does not scan the HTTP or Network traffic like avast!.
If you were running MSE then that is a better AV program than Avast and has anti-spyware and anti-malware protection.
Hitman is not advised by BleepingComputer as it violated the copyrights of many different vendors.
Dont run more than 1 anti-virus at a time. I would say malwarebytes - hitman - emisisoft a2 - spyware terminater - prevx safe on line - will fill the bill.
