There are many spyware elimination software on the net available to download. I am using ad-aware which i think is very good but is it better that Spybot search and destroy. It contains a immunization feature which is handy but which one is better and safer to use?

Use them both because I find that what one misses the other picks up.

I use 'Spybot search and destroy', and Spyware Blaster. The reason for this is that Spyware Blaster stops spyware from getting onto the computer in the first instance, but should there be another spyware base send spyware out before Blaster is updated to detect it and stop it from downloading, then Spybot Search and Destroy will take it off after a scan. Hope this helps
