common sense. If you do not have it, no matter how many anti spy progs you have, you will get hit. There is no such thing as the 'best' and the debate is a non starter, just stick MS Antispy or Adaware or spybot on, use a little common and do not get over paranoid with reams of anti-spyware applications.

Have them all.

I have adaware, spybot and MS antispyware, I run them alternatively every five minutes just to make sure no ones spying on me.... wait wait. who's that outside peeking at me through the window ?-(

No seriously, as Gandalf says common sense is the most important thing and you can have more than one anti spyware program. I do have the above three and run them every so often, less than weekly and when I can be bothered.

Javacool's spyware blaster is another that's recommended too.
