NOD32 and adaware get the job done for me. I haven't used spysweeper since version 5 came out and found it incredibly resource hungry. spyware doctor is also a very good program I've used before.

I used to use spyware doctor, but the latest version was released with some serious bugs that screwed your system, so i got rid, and wont be using it again.

I never tried the latest version. I've heard there are some serious vista issues so I won't use it. Does the new version of spysweeper use a lot of RAM, if not I might consider using it since I've been looking for something beyond windows defender with realtime protection.
