Here's a better idea, not just for spyware, but for all sorts of problems. Check out this website: http://www.ubcd4win.com/
There you will find instructions and tools to make a bootable CD full of diagnostic and recovery tools. Anything from viruses, spyware, data recovery, and much much more is on this CD. It even includes Firefox, so you can get onto the internet while you are working on repairs. After you make the CD, you just pop it in, restart your computer, and get to work.

While you cant just copy the app over, you can make a copy of the installation file on a cd for most of the things you would usually need, then just copy the installer over and use that to install the app. Currently i do this with CWShredder, AAW, Spybot, HJT itself along with a few more specialised tools. However, a word of warning here, cleaning spyware is not just a matter of throwing apps at the problem, you need to understand what is going on first. Thats the bit that requires training.

You must create your own custom Boot CD, however there are simple to follow instructions on the website and the whole process is a snap. Once you have configured all your required apps in the correct folder and edited necessary the .ini files you can get to building the disc. There is even plenty of room left over to burn all those installer files, etc onto the disc also.
This means that you can use the same disc to first of all clean up a particularly serious infection, then boot into windows normally and install all the anti-malware / anti-spy / system apps that you deem essential to clean surfing.
