    I use AVG free it scans daily. You do have decent security. there are a couple of other programs you could consider.
    These AV`s are all free and good. I prefer AVG, been using it for 3 years with no problem.

    You also could use some good anti spyware;

    You should also download 1 of these programs to warn you of risky websites.

    If your system is running slow you may need to add more ram.

    This is a good read for PC maintenance.

    You’ve got pretty good security for overall protection. Your Windows Defender will do a daily scan automatically. Check the scheduling. Probably your SuperAntiSpyware does to and your Avira and Firewall are always on guard. You are probably safe to not need to run full scans but every few weeks. Keep in mind individually or as a group security software can’t always be 100% effective. So don’t be too risky.

    Add this to your counter-measure arsenal:
    Sandboxie (
    runs your programs in an isolated space which prevents them from making permanent changes to other programs and data in your computer.
    Use it for:
    Secure Web Browsing: Running your Web browser under the protection of Sandboxie means that all malicious software downloaded by the browser is trapped in the sandbox and can be discarded trivially.

    Enhanced Privacy: Browsing history, cookies, and cached temporary files collected while Web browsing stay in the sandbox and don’t leak into Windows.

    Secure E-mail: Viruses and other malicious software that might be hiding in your email can’t break out of the sandbox and can’t infect your real system.
    Not overly difficult to use. Don’t presume you can do just anything as it does have limits; listen to ‘Security Now’ #174 for more details (

    Not for 64 bit Vista platform.
