Default Conflicting Security Triad

Catchy title?

Whatever the case, the situation I have is anything but pleasant. I just bought a Core 2 Duo laptop with 1GB of RAM, and my security programs are kind of running it down. I want to see if certain components are necessary if I have ZoneAlarm Pro running in the background.

For Webroot's Spy Sweeper, are the shields pretty useful, or are they better turned off? And if I turned it off, would SpySweeperUI.exe and/or SpySweeper.exe be removed off my processes list?

Alright, on to Eset's Nod32, my antivirus program. Should I keep the following on or off?
1. AMON (File System Manager)
2. DMON (MS Office Monitor)
3. EMON (MS Outlook Monitor, I don't even use Outlook)
4. IMON (Internet Monitor)
And if I disable one or more of the above, will it remove nod32krn.exe from my processes list, or detract from the memory usage?

All in all, I have around 320MB of background processes running, out of 1024MB. Is that fine, should I not even worry about the above inquiries... or should I mind, and not only go anal on the security processes, but try to cut down on other processes as well?
