Personally, I would not want team viewer but I do use
Malwarebytes
Avast
WinPatrol
Crystal Disc
Macrium Reflec
Karens Replicator
Secunia PSI
CCleaner
Auslogics Defrag, (I like it more than the defragger that comes with 7.

I am suggesting the free version of Win Patrol. It primarily alerts you to changes that have been made
WinPatrol Downloads Page
Crystal Disc allows you to easily check the condition of your hard drive. If it is beginning to deteriorate, it is time to back up, which you should do anyway.
