The most popular antivirus programs are targeted by virus makers.  I mean they go out of their way to work around them and turn them off.  I have removed viruses and spyware from "protected computers", including CA, Trend Micro, Norton and McAfee.  I like VIPRE because I can install it on computers that refuse to install the other antiviruses, it doesn't slow your computer down and it's a good price at US$29.95 for 1 year.  cheaper if you get 3 years.

Synchronise Automatically with your external hard drive.
The cost of storage and external hard drives leaves no excuse not to backup your data regularly.  I love handy backup for its ability to set and forget.  It will backup, restore or synchronise at a scheduled time.  It will email you each time your backup runs so you're aware if there is something wrong or at ease because of a successful completion.

As you use your computer it collects all sorts of crap from the 'net.
CCleaner is a freeware system optimization, privacy and cleaning tool. It removes unused files from your system - allowing Windows to run faster and freeing up valuable hard disk space. It also cleans traces of your online activities such as your Internet history. Additionally it contains a fully featured registry cleaner. But the best part is that it's fast (normally taking less than a second to run) and contains NO Spyware or Adware! :) CCleaner - Freeware Windows Optimization
