With ref to my posting of the 8th AVG what I now have installed is.
Windows Defender
PC Tools Firewall Plus
Microsoft Security Essentials
Can this be improved or best to leave as it is.It is updated every two or three days

yes uninstal avg or security essentials it is inadvisable to have 2 Antivirus programs running side by side as this may cause conflicts

Dont have AVG installed only the five programs listed

Does Windows Defender actually run I was led to believe that it was part of MSE.
Apart from that you have you want Spywareblaster and WOT.And that should be enough.

Isent Defender part of the windows installation,whether mse is installed or not?

always use only one antivirus program.

MSE turns off Windows Defender, but leaves it installed so that if MSE is removed at some future point Defender automatically becomes active again providing basic protection.
