You are implementing a layered security defense on your computer, which is quite an impressive method of protecting your new computer! It is a good habit that you keep your Internet Explorer updated even if you chose not to use it, and Windows Vista & Windows 7 users should be more secured when they chose to use Internet Explorer because of the “Protected Mode” feature that only Windows Vista and Windows 7 offers.
Having CCleaner on your computer is good for keeping your computer running smoothly, but it should not be used as a security product (because it’s not), and please consider installing a third party firewall program for a more comprehensive outbound packet filtering, because the Windows Firewall is well known for its weak outbound connection protection, which can potentially allow any spyware or viruses to “phone home”.
Other than that, with all the other security programs like Microsoft Security Essentials, Spyware Blaster, Malwarebytes, UAC, DEP and Automatic Updates remained turned on and updated at all times, you should be safe from most security threats. And remember to use your Acronis True Image to keep your system backed up consistently, just in case a major malware crippled your PC.
