    Rate, please, my setup:

    avast!,
    Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit,
    MCShield,
    Comodo Firewall (HIPS, Autosandbox),
    Sandboxie,
    IOBit Malware Fighter ONDEMAND,
    Malwarebytes Anti-Malware ONDEMAND.

    Is that good? Any recommendations?

    I'd remove Iobit but the rest is fine imo

    I second that and I would also replace Avast with a free cloud AV, like Bitdefender, Panda or Qihoo, but if you like it, nevermind.

    I don't see any imaging software there. Where is it?

    I don't know how Comodo's autosandbox work but it could be overlapping with Sandboxie.

    Only in full-virtual mode. It's inconvenient to use anyway, so Sandboxie might be the better all-rounder for daily usage IMO.

    Is it bad? Well, I heard something about stealing database from Malwarebytes...

    Great combo. I used it for a long time. Comodo firewall, sandboxie and an AV of choice. Comodo sandbox works great in full virtual. Doesn't overlap sandboxie.

    Then you heard right...but lets leave it at that to not go offtopic.

    Yes its total crap, and you don't need it in your setup.

    I don't wanna go offtopic, but how does it stand in comparatives?

    Thanks! Is full virtual and semi-virtual big difference?

    What comparatives? No one bothers to review this junk seriously. http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2419549,00.asp

    They lie on their homepage (Up to 300% Faster PC), they use a typical deceptive advertising like huge icons and text, clean colors, etc.

    -Remove Avast! and replace it with Panda Cloud or Bitdefender or Avira.
    -Remove IObit and replace it with HitmanPro.
