Being paranoid... security check please

I've just bought a new laptop, and after having a lot of problems with my old one I'm a bit paranoid about internet security now.

ATM I'm running Norton AntiVirus (bundled with the LT... free until Jul 2005, then I have to pay a subscription)

SpySweeper3 and MS own firewall is enabled.

Should I be doing anything else? Can you run more than one anti-spyware/adware program at once, or is this redundant?

Yours in paranoia...

Try PrevX ( it is still free ) and seems to be an "All singing and Dancing" programme.
PS I also have Spybot , Spywareblaster Ad-Aware and Norton.

I just use that plus AVG for virus checking and a hardware firewall (part of my ADSL Router) and been fine so far.
