I like avast, malewarebytes and windows defender (free from microsoft website). I also use ATF Cleaner and CCleaner because both deletes the things the other doesn't (these are just cleaners, not virus protection, but oftentimes maleware is stored in ur temp folders and cookies and such so it can remove maleware). I also have some other random stuff like combofix and a link to kaspersky's free scanner and ect.

What you have seems to be decent. Make sure that everything is updated including your windows updates.

Your probably better protected than most people (unless of course nothing is updated) since most people are funny, in better words, and don't bother turning on a fire wall or having any AV programs or installing windows updates untill like a year later.
