Ok, so you recently got hit with a rogue. Presumably, your computer is clean now and I expect that part of the learning you're after came through the cleanup process.

I won't go into the A/V, A-S, firewall part as you have already heard from the others on that aspect. What I will say is to use the product you are comfortable with. You'll probably find as many recommendations here as there are products on the market.

Aside from safe surfing, Microsoft security updates and the already discussed antivirus, anti-malware and firewall, there are other software programs that need updating to safeguard your computer, such as Adobe products, Java, alternate browser(s). To check if your system is missing security updates or has insecure applications installed, visit OSI - Consumer - Products or download PSI - Consumer - Products. The online version of Secunia Software Inspector runs through your browser with no installation or download required and does the following:
  • Detects insecure versions of applications installed
  • Verifies that all Microsoft patches are applied
  • Assists you in updating your system and applications
I suggest that you install and keep updated SpywareBlaster to prevent the installation of spyware and other potentially unwanted software: SpywareBlaster | Prevent spyware and malware. Free download.

Also consider installing and keeping updated the MVPS Hosts File. Additional information is available here: Blocking Unwanted Parasites with a Hosts File

My favorite security software is WinPatrol which includes the features described here: WinPatrol Features

As you can see, there are plenty of us here to provide suggestions. If you have any questions, ask away. It is the only way to learn.
