It should be enough, adding more might slow down the system
Sandboxie is nice too

Common sense, other than that you're fully loaded.

Sandboxie - Sandbox software for application isolation and secure Web browsing
Comodo Firewall has a sandbox feature. So there's no need to install Sandboxie.

Will notify of any unwanted downloads and let you return to before the download. I use it and suggested by our own Corrine; cant be better than her.

Greetings

Not to turn yourself into a armored car, it should be healthier just to have a good and well-configurated firewall, one antispyware/malware ( if you want to have one to work as antispyware and another to works as antimalware there´ll be no problem), one AV. If possible a program to help you cleaning your system.

I have myself a simple firewall (outpost firewall) , spyware blaster on background, spybot and search with host protection activated and tea timer, ESET AV. For cleaning my system i have Steganos Trace Destroy. Off and on i use sophos anti-rootkit for checking hidden trojans. Except for the firewall and my AV, the other programs are freeware.

That was the only element of comodo I found confusing. For example, if I download a file, and determined i wanted to keep it, I couldn't figure out how to tell comodo to write it out permanently (save it, take out of sandbox, how ever you'd like to describe it ) vs. sandboxie, which is pretty straightforward imo.

This should help with Comodo:
