How do you keep your PC secure?


So, what's your trojan wall?

Last week, I had fallen victim to two malware attacks that resulted in my having to reformat my PC twice. Since I took my PC's security for granted, I never really devised a way to safeguard it resulting in my losing valuable time. At the moment I'm researching on the best anti-virus and other software to not let this happen again.

How do you keep your PC safe from these kinds of attacks? What are your preventive and recovery measures?

Anti-Virus: AVAST or NOD32

Anti-Spyware: Ad-Aware

Browsers: IE 7, FireFox 3, Chrome

Partitioned drive into 2. One for program files - and for data files. Planning on external hard-drive for backup image of data files Backup important data to DVD once every 2 months.

And I have no "System Restore Point" strategy.

Help! :P
