Default Ad-aware and Spybot

What do you all think about these programs? Do they work well? Any other good ones out there?

They both do very well. I use MSantispyware, but there are a few others that are pretty good.
We use PestPatrol on our corporate network. it seems to get the job done too.

I currently use both of them, just curious to see what others think and use.

I've been using both for years along with Microsoft antispyware and Spywareblaster.
