Microsoft Security Essentials plus anti-spyware?

I have Microsoft Security Essentials. Should I also download a free anti-spyware package, or would that confilict with MSE?

I have used Spybot in the past. Is this the best?

I also have installed the free download of Malwarebytes anti-malware. Pleae tell me if this does more harm (i.e. it intereferes with MSE) than good. (My understanding is that malware is different from spyware.)

Thanks very much indeed.

malware/spyware is different to viruses, so, no problem running MSE with anti malware/spyware. I have MSE, Malwarebytes and Superantispyware. No conflicts.
