Private firewall at default
Computer seems fast enough for me for a 2yr old Toshiba 505. However my only concern would be for a possible conflict down the road between Sandboxie (experimental 64 mode) and a Windows update, or Private firewall and Winpatrol.

No program is 100% at virus/malware prevention.
Consider making backup images of the OS and backups of data files.
Keep the backup HD offline when not making backups.
If anything happens to the HD, OS, data, etc., it is much more likely you can recover.
Backups work well for me, and i think of this as another protection layer.

SF has many tutorials about backups.
