I do like Spybot S & D because of its Immunizing feature, Shredder Tool and a few other nice features. Everyone has their favorites. MalwareBytes Anti-Malware is also only good for spyware, but you need to protect your computer against viruses, not just spyware.
Here are a few recommended, free programs (includes spyware and anti-virus programs, plus a very good firewall):
LavaSoft's AdAware 2008:
Spybot Search & Destroy:
Anti-Virus Programs -
RogueRemover Free 1.24 :
Do not run or schedule scans of any program at the same or over lapping times. AVG is good to have set up to run at all times with a regular scan including incoming email. Even ClamWin has a good scheduler, but do not use both at the same time. This also goes for the spyware programs like AdAware, Spybot S & D and others. This is just to prevent conflicts.

I am not a malware expert so this is only my opinion.
I like Spybot s&d over superantispyware.
However I followed the link that Sari posted and I ran a scan with malwarebytesantimalware.
The scan was fast, which is a plus for me, and seemed to work with no issues (My machine is not infected so I do not know how well it works).
Thank you Sari for this link.
