This is a decent security setup on a windows box, imo:
Firefox (configured right)
A good firewall, such as black ice or zone alarm.
And limited running services
Now even with that, you have to be aware. You can still manually install malware. After all, you are your biggest vulnerability .

you ask how to keep your PC clean after recovering from infection. Well the first thing that springs to mind is to follow the advice that Kat gave you when she cleaned your PC up earlier this month, or maybe you did. I cant tell, because when you posted again in malware 5 days later that you still had problems, you didnt post a HJT log, so I cannot tell WHAT is going on.
The two most common reasons a user finds that they are continually getting reinfected, are
1- Not following the advice on prevention given by the Helper after cleaning your PC through HJT
2- Spyware remaining on the system undetected originally.
That said, you are obviously still having problems here, so please start a new topic in the malware forum. Posta new HJT log there and I will pick it up for you. OK?
