Following a post on this list a few days ago, I installed the MS tool 
yesterday although I run both Ad-aware and Spybotsd regularly.

I ran the MS Anti Spyware this morning and was told that my system 
was clear.  I then ran Spybotsd and it found 2 threats.  Admittedly they 
were only Double Click and Avenue A, but I think that it is advisable 
not to rely entirely on the MS tool at present.  Incidentally with Ad-
aware and Spybotsd, whichever order I run them in, the second usually 
finds things that the other has missed.
