Not sure if i can post links here so you can Google the names.
Free Firewall-Zonealarm free
Best Browser-FireFox or Opera,
If using FF go to Mozilla home and find the addons,search forAdblock plus FiltersetG updater and
install,search for No Script and install,they take a bit of getting used to but
they stop auto installs of flash and java script when you open a page,a
lot of malware is and can be written into Video and text,Know those big banner ads-Click here to win the whole internetz-they can have malware
embedded in them...Got adblock-no ads...
As an aside search addons for Fasterfox,helps with speed on page load
Free AV-Nod32 or AVG
Free Anti-Spyware-Spybot Search and Destroy
I myself do not use an AV,only a firewall and Firefox with those extentions and had no problems in three years,
Also don't run "EXE's" or click links in unknown emails that promise you the world and some blue pills but will deliver you a desktop brick
[edit for clarity...i hope]
