I use the following and think they are good.

AVG Anti-Spyware. It is a separate product from AVG Anti-Virus.

The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

"Right now all I have is AVG free - Spybot - and Ad-aware."

You have a very strong group of security applications already. I don't see the point of adding another AV, but would recommend adding the AVG Anti-spyware application.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

I noticed under the spyware blaster recommendation that you said not to use with microsoft office. Will it cause conflicts with it?
