Your current configuration: Windows XP SP3 with Microsoft Security Essentials + Sanxboxie and the free version of Emsisoft Anti-malware seems to be fine. I would personally feel that MSE + sandboxie is more than enough since MSE's protection is fine, but each to his own

I've used both MSE and Sandboxie in a LUA (XP) with great success.

IE 8 is a great browser (together with sandboxie) but the alternatives like Firefox and Opera are better. However, if you are happy with IE 8, stick with it.

I also used a program called "surun" which was like a mini UAC for Windows XP. Works great and does not bloat your system. You might want to try that.

You could also disable autorun and autoplay for starters manually or with a utility like tweak ui (scroll to the bottom of that page to download):
