I can no longer get AVG Anti-Spyware "Free" now and don't know which Anti-Spyware to turn to. I really don't care for Windows Defender and I use AVG Anti-Virus so I just need a Free Anti-Spyware program similiar to AVG as I loved there AVG Anti-Spyware. Are there any out there similiar to AVG Anti-Spyware Free? All help greatly appreciated.

If you just need an antispyware scanner for on-demand use, Superantispyware is the best in my opinion. If you also need real-time protection, the best free one is Spyware Terminator, again in my opinion.

Agree Superantispyware is darned good.
Other good ones worthy of consideration Malware Bytes Antimalware, Asquared, and, along the same lines but more a behaviour blocker than an antispyware, with pretty much zero hassle and not many popups (so far), Threatfire.
Asquared has a bit of a rep for FP's. Undeservedly, in my opinion, but, as with any of them, if a scan finds something, check it out before deleting it. And then, don't delete; quarantine.
