Spywareblaster is a nice little app to have in the background. It doesn't run like other programs, just adds definitions to the registry that prevent certain spyware from being installed. Malwarebytes is a pretty good one to have just to run manual scans every now and then. It's has frequent updates available, sometimes 2 or 3 times a day, so make sure to update it before running a scan.
Avast also has an Antispyware, and AntiRootkit module built in to it that no one mentioned.
