I'll aggree with VoG™ about spyware blaster as an addition as it blocks rather than clears spyware, but four anti spyware scanners ? Overkill I think.

But if you want more there's Spycatcher express click here and Spydefense Beta click here

You have 4 programmes. These are more than enough. All you need to remember is to be careful in accepting or clicking on anything that you do not understand. If you give a file permission no amount of protection will help (see Spyaxe). MS Antispy and Spybot will be more than enough but you could run Ccleaner click here every week or so to clean out the detrius.

I personally got rid of AOL Spyware Protection as it kept coming up with false positives.
