    I have AVG as my antivirus and spybot, MS antispyware, but i was wondering if there are any other good programs i should have to keep my machine up and running well.

    Dump MS Antispyware and update to Windows Defender. This has replaced Antispyware going forward, and is the only product from that line that will be updated.

    Other than that, probably get Ccleaner if you don't have it already, defrag regularly, stay on top of Windows Updates (I recommend using Microsoft Update to obtain Windows and Office updates) and just practice safe computing :)
