    Okay this is what I have going right now

    Comodo Firewall
    SUPERAntiSpyware
    Ad-Aware
    AntiVir PE Classic
    AVG
    Ccleaner

    I am thinking of droping Ad-Aware and AVG

    So this is what I would be left with

    Comodo Firewall
    SUPERAntiSpyware
    AntiVir PE Classic
    Ccleaner

    Okay so am I missing anything? Should I keep anything?

    BTW all are free editions

    That's a lot of security applications.

    IMO, there are basically five types of security software that is recommended to have: a real-time virus scanner, an on-demand virus scanner, a real-time malware scanner, an on-demand malware scanner, and a firewall.

    I think you should just stick with AntiVir PE Classic as both the real-time and on-demand virus scanner. It also as anti-rootkit. SUPERAntiSpyware is an excellent on-demand malware scanner. CCleaner is also a good cleanup tool. Comodo Firewall is a good choice for a firewall as well. All you really need left is a real-time malware scanner (Windows Defender, SpywareBlaster, etc.) if you want to cover everything.

    So basically, in my opinion, I think you should just drop AVG and Ad-Aware like you said and remember to surf responsibly.

    Just make sure you know the ins and outs of Comodo. It's a great firewall but only if you know how to use it.
    Read it's help files and use the Comodo forum if you have questions.
    Be patient the first few days when using Comodo for the first time or after re-installing, the pop-ups will soon clear if you know how to make and use rules for Comodo.
    Also, get to know the strong Defense+ HIPS part of it.
    Cheers.

    Edit/PS. If you do not use the Defense+ HIPS (yet), take a look at ThreatFire.
    It's an anti-malware behavioural blocker with real-time protection.

    Kaspersky Internet Security suite is a good way to go if you ever decide you want to spend money on security solutions.
