Webroot Spysweeper, Spywareblaster, and Microsoft Anti-Spyware (a decent free one). I think Spysweeper is the best.

Paid version of spyware doctor is awesome. It doesn't let anything in at all.

What do you mean "All"? Do you mean that all are good?

Yes, all of them. You cant keep a clean system just by running one program. Each program will find something different than the other and also the same items. Run it yourself and see. Better to have all than one.

So you recomend installing all?? Will it not affect the performance of the PC? (even if it is a slow pc, wont it affect it??)

Should I have them running in the system tray or should I manually scan in a period of time (how much do you recomend; scan once / week using them all or what??)

thanks again

Install all, it wont affect performance, run them only when needed or if you have a scheduled scan time like MAS does at 2 am. Scan as often as you are on the net or download items etc.
