Is it safe to use mulitple anti-spyware programs on one pc?

I have read many reviews of different anti-spyware programs and many of them contradict each other at times. So I bought a few anti-spyware programs to see which one's are good or not. I like Spyware Doctor and Sunbelt Counter Spy the best so far. The next best I have to say is Webroot Spysweeper.
I also use Trend Micro Anti-spyware, CA Pestpatrol and Tenebril SpyCatcher and I don't like these as much as my top 3 picks.
My favorite free anti-spyware that I use is Spybot Search & Destroy and Ad-Aware SE.
What I notice is that after I use them one right after the other for a scan check of my pc, each one will find spyware/adaware/etc. that the other misses.
Anyway, is there any risk or danger in using multiple anti-spyware programs on one pc?
