    The first one seems to be a rather good choice of software. Normally, multiple
    security products tend to cause product conflict. Your setup, however, seems to be compatible with one another, so there should not be any problem with your current setup.

    With Comodo Internet security, you get a powerful firewall and HIPS program, coupled with a great antivirus program, along with other features such as automatic sandbox browser.

    As for which is better, it depends. If you want less hassle, along with having less installed program to manage, go with comodo. If you want good overall protection, I would stick with the first choice, since Eset has better detection rate with less false positive, sandboxie has a better sandbox than comodo and Spyshelter's anti-keylogger capabilities is much more powerful than that of comodo.

    Looking at your first setup, you seem to be lacking a firewall and hips program.
    While I used to recommend installing comodo firewall to fix this, comodo firewall tends to have compatibility problems with other security programs, as well as being a pain to update. So I recommend using the built in firewall (assuming you are using windows 7 and above). I would not recommend installing an HIPS program, unless your fond of answering popups for almost every action on the computer.

    SpyShelter has HIPS and there is also a version with firewall.
