Cover yourself from the bads.
A firewall is a must(You know it better than me).
Zone Alarm has a free version & it works great.
Comodo is a compleely free Firewall. All you have to do is registering with your email address to get a lifetime full license.
The browser is also something very important for your security. I recommend safer,faster better Firefox.
You also have to be aware of Phishing.
I Never blame people who do these bad things coz I hardly believe that “Weaks are made to be used by strongs”. So your responsibility is to keep your self strong. Good luck.
