    you are all good, maybe you can add EMET (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2458544) and Secunia PSI instead of Filehippo (http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/personal/) it is based more on the security aspect than just the updates.

    FileHippo Update Checker is still a good choice. It can detect out-dated versions of Auslogics Disk Defrag, not sure if Secunia PSI can do this?

    Since Chrome is bundled with Flash Player and updates silently, this renders Secunia PSI useless. Unless you disable Google updates.

    It also depends what other third-party software is installed and whether they have their own updaters, such as Adobe Reader and/or Java.

    If you have Secunia PSI running all the time, it runs 3 processes and a service or two (not quite sure).

    If you have Flash Player installed for Firefox or Internet Explorer and don't use them, then you can uninstall them, or update them to Adobe Flash Player 11 (now support IE9 64-bit).

    Ive been thinking about trying other web browsers, any recommendations of which browsers and why? Opera looks like a good browser, but does it keep up with Firefox and Chrome performance and security wise?

    any browser running in Sandboxie is "secure", but i personally prefer using Comodo dragon (chrome baserd, anti-phishing and privacy features and secure DNS activated) in sandboxie.

    So have you tried NotScripts tho, ScriptNo looks like it could be easier with the interface of the pop ups
