If you know what you're doing online, it's enough. It's all I have (+ Windows Firewall) on my netbook.

MSE will do just fine. You may want to add Malwarebytes Antimalware. Good combination of both programs and they work well together. Windows firewall is a plus.

heres my sercurity setup and best of all it wont cost you any money Avast antivirus 5 (free addtion) malwarebytes, superantispyware and windows firewall. if you are going to use MSE please also use superantispyware since the spyware side of MSE is weak.
