Question Anti-Spyware freeware

Anyone know where to find a good freeware anti-spyware software? I already know about Dr. Alex and Adware SE. Dr. Alex does not update its signatures and I doubt that it is much good. While I have Adware SE, I would like a second one that does real time scanning. Ad Ware SE does not do this. I could go get a shrink wrap anti spyware from Webroot, but it cost too much. It's not free and there are just too many great freeware out there. So what do you recommend?

flame me if you wish but spybot and ad aware are terrible. Go with windows defender if you want a free app.

With the combination of AdAware Se.

Fixes just about all of my problems.
