    Can anyone tell me the difference between XoftSpy and XoftSpySE.
    I'm very confused.

    This is the official homepage of XoftSpySE :
    http://www.paretologic.com/
    Always download software from its original homepage, unless the homepage directs you to another website. This is a good and safe habit.
    I don't see any XoftSpy, but it was its name in the past. XoftSpySE is the latest version.

    Warning : XoftSpy was once listed as rogue AS software

    XoftSpy is de-listed now, nevertheless it would be my very last choice.
    There are better AS scanners than XoftSpy.

    I also use Ad-Aware SE Personal and Spybot - Search & Destroy. Good enough?

    Both scanners are classical recommendations on almost any security forum/website, I've seen. So both are good enough.
    If you want a 3rd or even 4th AS scanner, I would take another one, than XoftSpy.
    Keep also in mind that top-notch AV scanners also remove alot of spyware.
