Malware removal apps

Hi, as an extra Malware remover (I already use AVG free and Malwarebytes) does anyone have an opinion on the merits of "Ad-Aware Free Anti-Malware 8.1.3" and "Spybot - Search & Destroy 1.6.2"? And, which is the best? Thanks.

click here is free, is highly recommended and as an advantage provides real-time protection. Unless you are hitting the pr0n sites with feverish gusto, you should not need more than this and MB.

Personally I use MalwareBytes and Spybot.

On occasions each has found things the other hasn't (not in my system normally, but when I've been cleaning systems I've had in for "sorting".)

I use eset security suite, and usually very little if anything gets past that.

For a free AV on other peoples systems (for those who want free), I've switched to using Microsoft Security Essentials, which I've found to be good so far, with only a small impact on system resources/load.
