Anti-virus; AVG/Anti-Vir/Avast!

All are good.

Firewall. Kerio/Sygate/ZoneAlarm

Anti-spyware;
Ad-aware SE
SpyBot S&D
SpywareBlaster

Better browsers than Internet Explorer;
Firefox/NetScape/Opera

That was just to name a few - Mozilla is fourth one too.

Keep Microsoft Updates patched up.

Keep all your security software up to date and windows up to date, that is another tip that I forgot.

I use HitmanPro It's a freebie suite of programs. The site is in Dutch, but there's an english manual at ~translate~

Well worth a look. It's easy to get up and running, and once setup, one button clicked runs the whole lot. No probs since I started using it.

Hope this is of some help.
