In Bleeping Computer forums is a utility called SecurityCheck. It lists every security program what is on your computer.

My SecurityCheck log looks like this:
Log is modified and shortened for helping analysis.
Windows 7 x64 (UAC is disabled!)
avast! Free Antivirus
MVPS Hosts File
Spybot - Search & destroy
Secunia PSI (3.0.0.2004) This program is great. It autopatches all obsolete programs.
Emsisoft Anti-Malware a2service.exe

In this log there is NO Windows Firewall. It did not show up there but it is up and running in my computer.

I can also recommend Trend Micro HijackThis program. Whoa. Good tool there.
You are talking about CCleaner. What is it?

It is a useful tool if you know what you are doing. It can delete registry keys, so there is always the chance it will mistakenly delete a key you need. But it is good in the event you know you want to completely remove a program and all its registry items, you just have to make sure you don't delete anything else.

I have question:
My program needs port: Standard SSL, 443. How to enable that port for that program?

Update:
I used that GRC port scanner and all of ports are in STEALTH mode. This is good.

What bit of software is being blocked from using 443? What firewall are you using ?
