Welcome to Defense against the Dark Arts.. lol!    

  • Use a LIMITED Account Always!
    If this might be of any incentive its actually faster than an Admin Account.
  • Keep your OS and your Security Solutions Updated!
    Do i need to say more bugs get pached so that you (your pc) are not venerable.
  • Don't Use illegal Software or cracks and warez! (trojan’s beware!)
    Studies show that’s how many get infected in the first place and pass on!
  • Keep two Antivirus Solutions at hand (One Active Other on Schedule Scan preferably weekly)
    Both being Active can result system slowdown! heatup! reduces your hard-disk lifespan! (as both the antivirus solutions will be fighting to scan everything parallel to what you are accessing. Nevertheless if you want them both ON use ones that are thou powerful but put on less load (like Avira) and keep a look out for two antivirus fighting between themself to kill a virus lol..
  • Use a Sandbox Software for testing new software's and solutions!
    Two Advantages: One, keeps u safe from unwanted modifications to your system at worst an embedded virus probably not intentional by the developer but infected intentionally / unintentionally through the chain of hands it came to you (have a option of downloading than using an old copy on disk download u get newer version and less possibility of infection. Two, keeps your registry clean = faster PC.
  • Use Community Supported Antispyware Solutions!
    Tells you if the file you are downloading is a safe one or not!
  • Enable DEP (Data Execution Prevention) and Use a Memory Firewall
    Check my Previous posts on how to, only Free Memory Firewall Available is Comodo.
  • Firewall : Windows Firewall is …
    Gud it blocks all inbound connections except ones u allow its better if you are on a limited account so no program tries to bypass it if all the applications on your system are clean if you are not already infected if… (Argh! to many if’s) Don’t use a firewall unless it can block and filter most of the incoming and outgoing junk itself without your interference meaning Windows Firewall is good, i love it for its simplicity but we need better! or stay in a clean network. Windows Firewall at best is a good filter put a firewall that’s a kick ass!!! if you don’t want to change use threatfire it will act like an addon increasing your security.
  • Additional Security and Added Solutions are useful!
    Sensitive data on your PC is better stored encrypted, Lock the Folders from prying eyes and programs, Denied Access or change, this can be achieved by variety of applications available free to simple settings of NTFS Access Control Lists. (Note: NFTS Encryption can be cracked)
  • Don’t over do it!
    Too many tools to manage ? Then use professional solutions like Avira Premium even Norton 360 will do (ya, ya, i know lol.., Symantec has improved its not a drag as much and i like its firewall) manage most of these from one console free alternatives are just as strong just as good but don't over do it remember security is essential but only to give u a pleasant experience not to give a stuck and drag experience.

Most of the security essentials are enabled by default in your operating system to prevent infections just download the rest or update/upgrade them to better..

Bottom line! (quite literally lol..)
Follow these to prevent infections i dont want any executables downloaded into my temp folder and run no matter who what, how they browse! do you ???
