IMHO, as long as you have one good anti virus (I hope you have one, such as Avira, Avast or MSE ) then a combination of Spywareblaster and Malawarebytes is ok, but I would add Superantispyware instead of spywareguard.SAS sometimes finds things missed by MBAM and vice versa.I switched to the W7 firewall following a bit of update problem with PCTools firewall and the Windows 7 one seems fine.

Sorry - spotted you have Vista, but same remarks apply.

You have a good combo with malwarebytes avg and spyware balster so delete spywareguard.

Happy New Year & thanks
