I have just recently used the other programs, because I forgot what the others were for. Also I forget if the Microsoft Security Essentials has a Fire-Wall or not, and if not, if the Vista Fire-wall is turned on or not.

a-squared HiJackFree: Using security Software to scan data
...Sometimes security software falsely identifies important crucial system components as a threat (hence the term False Positives - FP).
Removing/deleting critical system files, even temporarily, can make a system crash. Sometimes the system will recover after a reboot, and sometimes it will not. Therefore, you may not be able to start your system. Special system restore measures may be needed, or even a full system re-installation...If detections are FP's, you run the risk of rendering your system inoperable...
Spyware Traces in Detail
...the Anti-Malware Scanner looks for files, folders, registry entries and Tracking Cookies that are typically created by Spyware programs. Traces are exactly these trails that Spyware leaves behind...This approach has both advantages and disadvantages for Malware recognition...The negative side is that it provides a relatively inexact, or insufficiently differentiated to be more precise, Malware recognition. Benign software can be falsely recognized, for example, if it uses the same file name or folder as a dangerous Spyware program.
Software discovered via Traces should therefore first be double-checked to see if it is actually Malware before it is finally deleted...

Firewall: Windows Firewall and/or Comodo Firewall
You can actually just ditch the firewall. If your router has a firewall, then just use that.
