I have enough security

I inherited an XP laptop from my daughter. It had McAfee security suite on it which was about to expire. So I deleted it.

I have now installed AVG 8 Free to give me anti-virus/spyware and turned on the XP Firewall.

Will this give me adequate security for my laptop
Thanks for any comments.

If using AVG free,this is currently under debate by some.

add SpywareBlaster.A Squared and Malwarebytes.All free versions and that should do you.Maybe change the Firewall.

You have more than enough, there is no need to go OTT (A2, malwarebytes AND Spoywareblaster...just Malwarebytes).
