Which spyware combination has proved more useful than you while you use Vista? I was going to use Spybot and Ad-Aware until I saw that the new Ad-Aware 2007 sorta demanded cash to be the kind of spyware program that I like to customize scan and use.

Anyone care to share their ideas or thoughts? Thanks.

All I have is Superantispyware and Spywareblaster both work well with Vista. Both free. The paid version of SAS has a few additional tweeks and is resident whereas the free is a demand only scanner. But I like them

i have tried the newest 2007 version on ad-aware and its very nice and flashy and overall has a nice look... but it has not found any problems except a few cookies (yay...?)
Spybot works good as always, no complaints here!
Webroot had some errors initially but got it straightened out. It works great as always, by far my best recommendation if you dont mind spending the money.

There is a free version of Ad-Aware Plus, except you have to register with a "partner".
