This will be fine as far as I see.
I would recommend replacing Windows Defender with somthing like Spyware Terminator, but that comes to your personal taste.

As it stands, your choice in software will protect you from most common threats.

It would be more secure if you use a third part firewall such as Comodo. As for your Antispyware, I would recommend SUPERAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.

Other than that you're fine, just remember to surf safe. Wink
