1. SuperAntiSpyware isn't needed as Malwarebytes is better overall.
2. Avast isn't that great, but malwarebytes will help you with that.
3. Peerblocks bad IPs from connecting to you.

It looks pretty good to me though.

Nothing can "catch everything", but i can tell you Malwarebytes will catch more than SuperAntiSpyware.... (Their Detection Rate Is Horrible).

You have to understand it doesn't make difference to what security products that you use, none of them will protect you against all online threats. Your actions is what will offer you the best protection.

1. Never download files unless you know they are safe- use a download site like Softpedia which scans all files for malware.
2. Never click on social links on Facebook or other sites.
3. Never click on email links or download any files from emails.
4. Utilize UAC on Windows (never approve anything not known to be safe).
5. Keep Windows and all of your software updated, vulnerabilities can be exploited and bypass any security software.

Always use a secure updated browser with security add-ons (adblock, WOT, LastPass, etc.)

Once you learn how to safely download files and browse the web, you will not need all of those extra security products.
Just a basic AV will be enough along with knowledge.

Enjoy!! :D

Then you can get by just using Avast, no need for those extra security products, they will just use up resources and slow down your system.

I suggest everyone consider adding an anti-keylogger program to their security configuration. There have been tests on them. The most highly regarded is Spy Shelter pro, runnerup Zemana pro.

Not everyone does banking/business on their computer though. Yes, they can still steal other account credentials, but as long as you can recover them there's no need for a specific keylogger in my opinion.
