not bad at all to be honest. I've been in the information security field for a while now so maybe I'm used to limited accounts... using an alternate account for elevation privileges.
so you're used to it :O!... meh I can't live with that hehe... but still good protection overall

Still the same setup since over the year now:

Realtime:
DefenseWall Personal Firewall v3

On-demand:
ShadowProtect Desktop (image backup)
SyncBack Free (data backup)
Dr-Web CureIt! (once per few months scan)

Thats it! Very fast and reliable setup

Microsoft Security Essentials as one choice is perfect and not bloated.

I, personally, use Kaspersky Internet Security 2010 along-side with PCTools ThreatFire.

I received my Kaspersky license via the Windows 7 Launch Party, and ThreatFire is a free "addon" for security software.
