MSE is basically all you need, apart from the addition of a Firewall. You can also have SAS and Malwarebytes if you wish.

MSE includes Anti-virus. I use it as do many other forum members.

Thanks nontek,
What do you advise as regards a firewall cosidering what I have now.SAS is that superantispyware.

I use (free) PCTools as a firewall with W7.Quite good and unobtrusive. I agree with Nontech re the anti malware, plus Spywareblaster (all free)

SAS - yes!
