Just get Avira free edition and you wont need anything else (other than windows own firewall). Avira wont let anything within a mile of your computer. The added bonuses are it's very light on system resources and it scan quickly. You will never need to run a scan though because nothing gets on in the first place, either by browsing or downloading.

Can't help with best spyware because I don't use them (other than Aviras own built in one). I even have defender off.

Seconded. This program is a godsend. Picked up things for me in XP that Spybot/Ad-Aware wouldn't even touch. I haven't used it much in 7, though.

There are some good anti virus apps. with antispyware add ons , but none are perfect.

It is a good idea to have a specialized anti-spyware app. in addition to your regular antivirus - even if it has antispyware added on.

I do occasional on-demand scans with Malwarebytes, just for an extra level of safety - in addition to Windows Defender

Ad-aware and Spybot are also well respected.
