You don't say whether you want to limit your choice to just the free ones, which is probably "yes" as all those you've mentioned are free.
I'm not sure there is just one which can be relied upon to find all instances of spyware on someones system. I almost always see recommendations to have two or three installed together.

But if you're willing to pay, and you also need a strong firewall and AV, ZoneAlarm Internet Security is excellent because AV, Firewall, and Spyware protection are integrated into one product.

If you already have AV protection, then I would have to say Outpost Firewall Pro includes an excellent real-time anti-spyware module, but unfortunately the latest version of Outpost Pro flags up far too many firewall alerts (most of which are normal activity) which you have to deal with, and no way to suppress them.

I love Spy Sweeper. It blocks incoming attempts, and it's very powerful. Many surveys which I have seen recently approve of Spy Sweeper with good stats. It's not free, but it works quite well. You can find that here by the way: http://www.webroot.c...cts/spysweeper/ ...
