If you use 2 of those and nothing comes up then you can reasonable be sure that you don't have spyware!

What makes you think you do?

Nothing too scary there. Nothing obviously showing spyware. Don't forget that monitoring these things actually effects the results. What about your firewall? Does that show lots of activity?

If the scans do show spyware and can't remove it check out my posts in this thread:
