Any or all from the list that I provided. It is worth having more than one as each seems to miss things that the other spots. But no need to get paranoid about this...

Not quite correct.

There's absolutely no need to limit yourself to just 1 real time program - but don't go overboard.

I use Defender + SpywareBlaster and also scan weekly with A2.

i have no problems with spybot

for real time it is monitoring incoming traffic to your system pretty much the same as your anti virus would do but they are looking for 2 different things i use defender for this purpose
