Two great applications that I always recommend are Spyware Blaster and Spyware Guard by Javacool.
They run in the background to help protect against 'intruders' before they get into your machine.

Spyware Blaster needs to be updated often. Once you've updated it, click on "enable all protection".

Javacool Software

Not necessarily Mercurial.
I've seen (first hand) that a Windows 7 user can get the malware running amok if they don't take the needed precautions as we have explained over and over again.

My Windows 7 RTM installation was just half an hour old and I was busily downloading programs from reputable sites when I caught my first trojan - must have been trailing one of those downloads. But MSE was on the guard and got it. I also notice an unusually high amout of tracking cookies that i eliminate with SAS.
