Hello,

You do have a good ammount of protection there, but sometimes even all of those products may miss something. There is no way to be 100% safe and secure online, but by having some layers of protection you will reduce your chances of getting infected.
Regards,

Alan.

Even though you have a set of security applications, and keep them updated, to rely on these to keep you protected will not be fool-proof unless you yourself are an extremely cautious internet user and have an understanding of what situations you should avoid.
Cheers,
John

Agree with what jgweed said.
Bottom line is you need to have 1 anti-virus program, a firewall, and at least 1 anti-spyware program(I usually have 2 just to be safe).
Also be careful when using the internet. I suggust you read here for some excellent tips:

Safe Surfing Habits & Common Sense adds alot to protection. I think you should add SUPERAntispyware 4 Free to your arsenal.
