If you can't tell you're infected with a keylogger enough to not have to use a VK, then it's time to re-evaluate.

Use different passwords for emails and banking. Give as few details about yourself as you need to when signing up for anything. Have multiple email accounts so that youcan use one as a "dump" address until you trust the email sender with your "real" address. Thats apart from common sense in huge amounts and the usual protection.

If you think you are 100% protected...then the next caller at your door is complacency...then comes the fall.

My computer has never been infected. But I suggest the XXXXL size for a desktop.

Yup, just don't plug it in. Ther will always be antivirus / antimalware programs just as there will always be people trying to get around them.

If you don't plug your computer in, you are 100% protected without a doubt! Where there are measures put in place to avoid getting infected with either a virus or malware there is always someone trying to beat the measures in place...its like a poacher and gamekeeper situation.
