Hmmm... I have Spy Sweeper 5.05 (1286) and it seems as stable as version 4-4.5. It doesn't seem to take anymore CPU or RAM than previous versions either. In my opinoin Spy Sweeper is the best protection you can get.
Ad-Aware is just useless. Spyware Doctor is okay, but is annoying as it takes a long time to start up and spikes the CPU, going from 0-100% all the time.
As an added level of protection, install SpywareBlaster and run it at windows start up. This handly little program prevents the installation of spyware in the first place... and it's free.
