Do I need more security?

I just got a new laptop running Windows 8

I have McAfee Total Protection installed

Do I need any other protection on it?

On my old laptop I had free AVG, CCleaner, Malwarebytes and Spybot.

Given that McAfee Total protection includes spyware protection, is it necessary for me to add anything to keep it safe?

Many thanks

Since McAfee isn't according the reviews the best then I would add Malwarebytes. CCleaner too but that isn't for security.

according to the reviews - must re-read what I type.

Ok I will add those, thanks. I was worried maybe there might be some conflicts if I added more.
