A good combo IMO:
Windows Defender - Free (build-in in Vista)
http://www.microsoft.com/athome/security/spyware/software/default.mspx
WD monitors the start-registry and hooks registers/files to prevent spyware
and worms to install to the OS.

"...Windows Defender did excel in behavior-based protection, which detects
changes to key areas of the system without having to know anything about
the actual threat."
--and--
SuperAntispyware - Free

I've used it since Windoes release it, At first I thought it *wasn't*
updating *.dat files, but it is!

And I tested it, downloading viral file and such, Defender deleted the file
before the DL. Can't complain about the price either.

Thank you for the responses---most interesting as always.
I do use Adaware but I think I will just leave the WD seeing that it
does not eat anything !!
