Thank you every one for help.
So far I did:
1. Enabled DEP for all programms

2. UAC is on default level

3. Installed GeSWall. It seems to that it functions the same way as Defencewall HIPS, but has free version.
What do you think about it's free version is it any good? It wasn't preconfigured so I had to put my browser, p2p, msngr and players isolate when start or isolate when tried access. So is it's free version worth having?

4. Installed Shadow Defender. As I understand it has function to put PC into virtual machine and rollback when restarted. So in theory any change I will or any virus I get do in Shadow mode should not affect after restart, is it right? I found it useful program to test other programs in shadow mode (problem only with programs which require restart) and do online scans as there is a risk that I can face some rogue AV. I have scanned my PC with Hitman Pro 3 - SurfRight and Prevx in shadow mode, not to run risk.
So am I using this program right way, and is it really safe? Or should I get normal Virtual Machines like Vmware or VirtualBox?

5. I am thinking about WinPatrol. Is it's free version good enough?

6. And only serious problem is backup. As I dont have external hard drive.
Maybe I will backup Laptop A --> Laptop B and Laptop B --> Laptop A
or is it not good idea?

Thank you everybody again!

EDIT: one more problem I encounter with GeSWall, I can label programs as trusted from drop-down menu. Like I downloaded trusted download and want installed it but it asks me to turn off UAC to label it.

You are welcome.

Have a look at this threads (differences between GW and DW):
Defensewall vs. Geswall - Gladiator Security Forum
and quite old from 2007 at Wilders:
DefenseWall / GESwall - Wilders Security Forums

Yes, you are right this is how SD works.
Safe is very relative concept... you see few months ago someone found a way how to bypass SD protection but after few days, Tony (developer of SD) fixed this issue, so far it is again safe app. This is why good support is very important to keep product up to date, malware writers don't sleep, they earn big money on this business (according to article in NYT, even bigger than drugs dealers/narcotic market).

Ad.5
I can't tell you about it since I haven't tried latest Winpatrol version.

Ad.6.
The idea of external backup is simple - when your main hard disk crash - you have a backup on another drive. It is always better to have few backup/copy of your files in another drives because it is double protection in case of hard drive crash or in case of theft of your laptop.
